Titans Brown Part Over Money Titans Brown Part Over Money

NASHVILLE In three years with the Tenne see Titans, wide receiver A.J. Brown turned into one of the NFLs top receivers. In so doing, he clearly outperformed his rookie contract.The question that led to Browns trade on Thursday: Just what was his worth when it came time to signing a new deal?In an offseason thats seen teams throw huge money at wide receivers time and time again whether through free agency or trades with extensions Arizona Cardinals T Shirts the Titans chose to draw the line with Brown.We dont know what the exact terms Brown sought from the Titans, but we do know he was overheard on a recent social-media post saying the Titans wouldnt go over $20 million per year.Combine that tidbit with the size of Browns new contract with Philadelphia a reported four years worth up to $100 million and you start to get an idea of the size of the difference between the Titans and their budding young star.There was a lot of circumstances that went into it, general manager Jon Robinson said. A lot of thought, a lot of different things we had to work through. We have compensated players that are on our team, guys in free agency. We have done that.Again, I just come back to the gap we were going to have to bridge there. It just seemed really too far for us to really make any progre s, and that the return currently for this draft, what we were able to require, was good value for us.What Browns value was at the start of the offseason was likely much different than it became in recent weeks.Thats because the wide-receiver market has gone through the roof, a trend illustrated perfectly by the Jacksonville Jaguars signing Christian Kirk to a four-year, $72 million deal last month. In four years, Kirk had never topped 1,000 yards, only once catching as many as 70 pa ses. In comparison, Brown topped 1,000 Jack Crawford Jersey yards in each of his first two seasons totaling 24 touchdown catches and earning one trip to the Pro Bowl during that stretch.Scroll to ContinueKirks deal skewed the receiver market as much as any, but consider some of these other eye-popping deals that were struck over the last couple months: Green Bays Davante Adams (five years, worth up to DeAndre Hopkins Jersey $140 million); Miamis Tyreek Hill (four years, worth up to $120 million); Buffalos Stefon Diggs (five years, worth up to $72 million); Carolinas D.J. Moore (three years, worth up to $61.9 million); Tampa Bays Chris Godwin (three years, worth up to $60 million); and the L.A. Chargers Mike Williams (three years, worth up to $60 million).Another way of looking at it: In 2021, only one wide receiver -- Amari Cooper -- had a cap value of $20 million or more. In 2023, the number of wide receivers with a cap value of $20 million Colt McCoy Jersey or more is now up to 15, including Brown.Brown, like other standout receivers from his draft cla s such as San Franciscos Deebo Samuel, Seattles D.K. Metcalf and Washingtons Terry McLaurin were clearly ready to taste some of that money, even if they hadnt played as many years as their counterparts.Did all those new deals play a part in negotiations?I think it did, Robinson said. When these guys started to come in, contractually, there was kind of a new bar. The bar had kind of been raised on that position. We were trying to work through that and find some common ground. But in the end, (we) just felt like it was at a spot we werent going to be able to get to.Added coach Mike Vrabel: I know what the gap we had to bridge was. This wasnt easy.The Titans did consider other options, such as placing a franchise tag on Brown after the 2022 season. But in the end, Robinson sounded like someone who wanted a long-term deal, but did not see it happening. When that scenario became reality for Robinson, it was time to get as much value as po sible for Brown, which is why the Titans D.J. Humphries Jersey traded him to the Eagles for the 18th and 101st picks in the draft.A few picks later, the Titans sent the 26thoverall pick and the newly acquired 101stpick to the New York Jets in exchange for a second-round pick (35thoverall), a third-round pick (69thoverall) and a fifth-round pick (163rdoverall).The Titans did not have a second-round pick at the start of the draft.Unfortunately we understand that if were going to be here a while, were not going to be able to keep every single player that we draft and develop, Vrabel said. This is where were at. Were excited to be able to be picking players (Friday).
