A.J. Brown is excited to help Jalen Hurts become one of the best young quarterbacks in the pros.

The two friends laughed together on TikTok during the NFL Draft as a trade happened between the Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans. Brown could not wait to get to Philadelphia because he knows something special is on the horizon.

As a former second-round pick of the 2019 NFL Draft, Brown totaled 1,000-yard seasons in 2019 and 2020 for the Titans.

The 6-foot-1, 226-pounder has wanted to play with Hurts for a while. Hurts tried to recruit him to Alabama in 2016, but the Starkville (Miss.) native chose to play at Ole Miss. Brown said he and Hurts remained in contact with each other.

He told NBC Sports Philadelphia that the offense with him and Hurts is going to be ‘special.’

“I’m so excited, playing with someone who thinks like me,” Brown said about Hurts. “I talk to him every day regardless of this football stuff. I’m so excited just to play with him. He’s a quarterback and I’m a receiver so we get on the same page quickly.”
