AJ Brown On $96M Extension: ‘We Don’t Play On Paper’

AJ Brown is indifferent about securing the most lucrative contract in his position, but excited about the future with Philadelphia.

In fact, the wide receiver says he wants to play the rest of his career with the Eagles. AJ Brown joined Philadelphia two years ago and has been to the Pro Bowl twice since.

His three-year, $96 million contract extension makes him the highest paid receiver in the league. However with Lamb, Chase and Jefferson all up for extensions too, he likely won’t be for long.

“Nothing. Nothing,” said AJ Brown on the meaning of getting paid. 

“I want to prove it. … We don’t play on paper. Nobody cares what’s in the bank account when you step between them lines.

“When I hang my cleats up, it’s gonna be in that uniform right there,” he said. “I’m not, like, ready for it to be over with, but that’s the goal. I think my career took off when I got here. I went to another level. It feels right. My family’s here. My girl started school again here. I got teammates, their kids, I want them to grow up together.”

“This is home. This is home,” Brown said. 

“There’s going to be some good days, there’s going to be some bad days, but this is home. I’ve been loving it. This is the best town there is, man. The support is just through the roof. Away games, home games. Away games feel like home games. … The support system is unmatched. I’m loving it.”
