Shortly after the Eagles traded up to No. 13 for DT Jordan Davis, they pulled off a blockbuster move that fans have been waiting for — Howie Roseman not only traded for WR A.J. Brown, but also signed him to a four-year, $100 million extension. Brown instantly impacts the Eagles offense, and is another familiar face for Jalen Hurts. The QB and WR have already been working out together this offseason, so that’s convenient.

It’s a move that was mostly unexpected, but was instantly celebrated. Brown is that big receiver the Eagles offense needed, and alongside DeVonta Smith, will pose a big problem for defenses this season (and probably three more seasons after that).

There is no doubt whatsoever that the A.J. Brown trade was well-received among his new teammates.


The move was also celebrated by analysts.
