Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown recently caused a stir on social media, as he hinted at a potential clash with the Titans over a general dissatisfaction with his contract.

The 24-year-old took the matter to Twitter and it posed a warning to the Titans that something between the two is not doing great.

Perhaps the beef is indeed brewing up. The 2020 Pro Bowler is entering the final year of his rookie contract in Tennessee, which he signed in June 2019 after the franchise picked him in the second round, 54th overall, in that years draft.

The rookie WR is set to receive $3.896 million in base salary for the 2022 season. In other words, he is underpaid.

Reportedly, until a new deal has been reached with the Titans, Brown will not attend preseason workouts, as per ESPN.

Trade rumors this offseason suggest that Brown is one of the names on the WR trade list, alongside Seahawks’ DK Metcalf, Commanders’ Terry McLaurin, and 49ers’ Deebo Samuel.

The WR trade market seems to be out of control right now with some of the league’s players cashing in big money, and has led to other rookie stars like Brown feeling like it is time to cash in, too.

Securing a new deal ahead of the start of practice is crucial. In Brown’s case, he wanted to sort out the contract extension before heading into offseason workouts.

The reason is simple – should he get injuried, his player value would be at great risk, as the amount of a contract could be less than expected.
