Shortly after the Eagles traded up to No. 13 for DT Jordan Davis, they completed a blockbuster move that fans have been waiting for – Howie Roseman not only traded for WR AJ Brown, but also signed him to a four-year, $ 100 million. expansion. Brown instantly affects the Eagles attack and is another familiar face to Jalen Hurts. QB and WR have already trained together out of season, so that’s convenient.
It is a move that was mostly unexpected, but which was immediately celebrated. Brown is the big receiver that the Eagles offense needed, and along with DeVonta Smith, he will pose a big problem for the defense this season (and probably three more seasons after that).
There is no doubt at all that the AJ Brown deal was well received among his new teammates.
Mane I’m sooo excited

The move was also celebrated by analysts.
Jon Robinson said trading with AJ Brown was a difficult decision that came together over the last 18 hours and really warmed up this afternoon. They felt they had reached the point where a deal would be really hard to agree on. #Titaner.

AJ Brown was @PFF4th best rated WR in 2021, 4th in 2020 and 13th in 2019.
His ranking in yards per. route runs these years: 5th place in 2021, 2nd place in 2020, 5th place in 2019.#Eagles

The Eagles turned Carson Wentz into a first-round pick and then turned a first-round pick into AJ Brown.
There were other pieces and moves involved, but not a bad trade in the end for Philly.
