Former NFL WR explains what makes ex-Ole Miss star A.J. Brown so special as a pro
During the 2019 NFL season, former Ole Miss WR A.J. Brown made a name for himself, challenging for the Rookie of the Year award with a huge debut.
Playing for the Tennessee Titans, Brown recorded 52 catches for 1,051 yards and 8 touchdowns. He added 60 yards and a score on 3 carries.
This week, former NFL WR James Jones praised Brown on NFL Total Access, saying he expects the former Rebel to become a star (via 247Sports):
“This kid is special,” Jones said. “We’ve seen him jump on the scene last year. You can hand the ball off to him. You can throw the ball to him. You could put him back there at quarterback. The ball in this kid’s hands, he is explosive. He is dangerous. And it’s only his first season and we’ve seen him take over this league. You cannot play this kid man to man. He is too big, too strong, too fast and they like to get him the ball every-which-way. Hand it to him. Throw it to him. It does not matter. This kid is going to be special in our league for years to come.”
Can Brown improve on those numbers this year? The Titans will count on him to have another big regular season if they want to return to the AFC Championship Game.
