NFL Rumors: Titans committed to keeping A.J. Brown long term

Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams may not be the only wide receivers signing lucrative contracts during this free agency period. According to reports, the Tennessee Titans are looking to keep Pro Bowler A.J. Brown in Nashville long term. 

Brown is eligible for a contract extension and could become one of the highest-paid receivers in the NFL. Titans General Manager Jon Robinson said from the NFL owners' meetings on Sunday he wants Brown to stay a Titan for years to come according to Jim Wyatt on the team's website. 

"Right now, we are just trying to get through this free agency period, seeing where we've landed cap-wise," Robinson said. "A.J. is an important part of what we do. He's a great teammate, he works hard, he's about what we're about. A.J. is a Titan and we want to keep A.J. a Titan. And that's part of our goal this offseason, or whenever that manifests itself, to come to an agreement to keep him around." 

Brown, drafted in the second round of the 2019 draft, is in the final year of his deal. He is scheduled to make $3.986 million this season. Wide receivers have been making waves this offseason and Brown may follow the trend. 

According to reports, there are other NFL teams interested in the pass-catcher from Ole Miss. ESPN writer Rich Cimini, says the New York Jets are "keeping an eye on" a few wide receivers approaching the end of their rookie deals. Those receivers include Brown, DK Metcalf and Deebo Samuel.

"The Jets have ties to all three. Receiver Elijah Moore played with Brown and Metcalf at Ole Miss and remains close friends with Brown."

The Titans already added Robert Woods this offseason to pair with Brown going into 2022. The wide receiver duo along with the return of Derrick Henry has the potential to top the AFC South for the third straight year and be one of the top teams in the league.
