The Eagles stole AJ Brown from the Titans in a trade last week, and he met the media yesterday with a big smile befitting his four-year contract, worth as much as $100 million.
Jalen Hurts is smiling too, since Brown is his best friend, as Brown described their relationship.
After the trade, Hurts FaceTimed with Brown and posted their reaction on social media.
“I’m going to go to bat for him every Sunday because he’s my friend,” Brown said. “It’s a different mentality you bring when you’re playing for somebody that’s important to you. It’s not about yourself anymore. You’re playing for someone else. So, I’m going to go above and beyond for this team and for him.”
ESPN reported that Brown would have taken $22 million, but the Titans wouldn’t offer as much as $20 million.
