AJ Brown’s Future at Tennessee Titans Solidified By Mike Vrabel

Published 04/11/2022, 4:05 PM EDT

This NFL offseason witnessed various speed-hungry clubs offering crazy deals to the top-tier wide receiver. However, few teams resorted to retaining their receivers and filling other spots to strengthen their roster. Mike Vrabel of the Tennessee Titans seems to have a similar thought on the matter.

The Titans wide receiver A J Brown will be entering the last year of his rookie contract. So a possible trade or an extension is imminent as far as the team’s future ambitions are considered. While talking to Rich Eisen on his talk show, Mike Vrabel clarified his stance on the discussion.

“I love A.J. professionally, personally. I’ve gotten to know him well as his coach and enjoy seeing him as much as I possibly can. Saw him working out here earlier, and said hi. As long as I’m the coach here, I would want to have A.J. Brown on my football team.” Vrabel clarified his relationship with Brown on the field.

The value Brown brings to the team might be the reason why Vrabel seems to stress so much about his deal. He was the backbone for the Titans to win the AFC South and earned the conference’s top seed. Earlier, Titans general manager Jon Robinson hinted at Brown’s extension during the NFL Annual meetings.
