The Philadelphia Eagles stole the show at the 2022 NFL Draft, executing a blockbuster trade with the Tennessee Titans for star wide receiver AJ Brown. Brown's arrival in Philadelphia gives the franchise a much-needed, number-one receiver for quarterback Jalen Hurts, who was as excited as anyone to learn that the team had traded for the former Titans star. The feeling is mutual with Brown, as he dished the truth about playing with his new ‘best friend' Hurts, per Pro Football Talk.
“Man, it’s going to be real special, man,” Brown said. “I’m so excited, playing with someone who thinks like me. I talk to him every day regardless of this football stuff. I’m so excited just to play with him. He’s a quarterback and I’m a receiver so we get on the same page quick.”
Brown said that playing with Hurts is “going to be real special”, noting that he's excited to play with someone who “thinks like him.” The NFL Draft trade for the former Titans star has the potential to take the Eagles offense to the next level, as Brown already possesses two 1000-yard seasons under his belt.
Hurts, who completed 61.3 percent of his passes after posting a 52 percent mark as a rookie, is an improving passer who could take an even bigger leap in 2022 with a talented receiver like Brown in the mix.
It's an exciting time for Eagles fans.
