Eagles WR AJ Brown opens up about his relationship with Titans fans ahead of Week 13 matchup
Ever since AJ Brown joined the Eagles, there’s been no love lost between the wideout and his former team’s fanbase.
Brown reportedly requested a trade from Tennessee a few weeks before the 2022 NFL Draft once contract talks stalled. His former employer granted his wishes come draft night, sending the wideout to Philadelphia in exchange for a first-round pick.
This Sunday, Brown will have an opportunity to stick it to the Tennessee faithful when the Titans travel to Philly.
Following the Eagles primetime win over Green Bay last Sunday night, Brown was asked about his relationship with Titans fans.
“Oh they hate me,” Brown told reporters. “Part of it is my fault. I mean, some people still love me, but I think the majority of their fans are out to get me. It’s part of it though.”
He later added that there’s “nothing personal” between himself and the Titans fanbase. It’s just the nature of the beast in this league.
Brown has thrown shade at Tennessee numerous times since his departure.
When San Francisco re-signed Deebo Samuel, Brown subsequently sent out this Tweet:
In a since deleted Tweet, he mocked the Titans current WR corps during Tennessee’s Sunday night loss to Kansas City back in Week 8. He then received several hateful messages in his DMs, all of which were from disgruntled Titans fans.
Unfortunately for Brown, this Week 13 contest with his former team won’t be in Tennessee, where he’d be able to dominate the Titans in front of their own fans. He’ll just have to settle with doing it here in Philly, in front his new fans. I can live with that.
