Pay Day For A.J.

Eagles Extend All-Pro Wideout


In what has become extremely familiar news, the Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to a contract extension with a star player on their offense.

All-Pro wide receiver A.J. Brown and the team have reportedly agreed to a three-year, $96 million extension, per NFL Network.

The Philadelphia Eagles have signed All-Pro A.J. Brown to the largest per-year deal for a WR in NFL history.

Brown, who is currently on a four-year, $100 million contract signed immediately after being acquired by the Eagles from the Tennessee Titans in 2022, becomes the highest paid receiver per-year in NFL history.

After becoming a Pro Bowl wide receiver in the first three seasons of his career with the Titans, Brown was traded to Philadelphia during the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft,

In his two seasons as an Eagle, the 26-year-old has taken both his own play and the offense to new heights. Brown formed an immediate on-field connection with quarterback and longtime friend Jalen Hurts to haul in 2,952 receiving yards, the third most in the NFL since 2022, and 18 touchdowns as the team has posted two straight playoff seasons and a Super Bowl appearance.

Brown becomes the fourth player on offense to receive a long-term extension in the 2024 offseason, joining left guard Landon Dickerson, left tackle Jordan Mailata, and wide receiver DeVonta Smith, along with bringing in Pro Bowl running back Saquon Barkley on a two-year deal.

He also sets a new benchmark for the many star wideouts looking for a new deal, including Justin Jefferson and CeeDee Lamb.

With Smith and Brown both under long term megadeals, the deal locks up both of Hurts’ primary weapons with all three contracts set to expire in 2029, giving the Eagles’ offense a head start over the rest of league for the last half of the decade.
