Colts may happily watch the Titans lose AJ Brown
The Indianapolis Colts could be watching the rival Tennessee Titans lose one of their best players in AJ Brown over a contract dispute.
The 2019 Draft was an elite class for wide receivers. The Indianapolis Colts, along with many other wide receiver-needy teams, are often ridiculed for not selecting one of the guys that became immediate impact players.
It’s now time for that group of receivers to be paid and they are letting it be known. AJ Brown from the Titans, Deebo Samuel from the 49ers, and Terry McLaurin from the Commanders are all expected to skip their respective team’s offseason programs as they await new contracts.
The situation that is especially close to the Colts is AJ Brown and the Tennessee Titans. Brown plays in the AFC South against Indy and has helped the Titans win the division the last two years.
That’s why many Indy fans are entertained by the ongoing saga between Brown and Tennessee. According to social media, the two parties don’t seem to be in a good spot.
Could the Colts see AJ Brown leave the AFC South?
Like many disgruntled stars in this era, AJ Brown did his talking on social media. In addition to the tweet that could be directed at the Titans or fans, Brown also removed Tennessee from his Twitter bio.
While it has been reported that both Brown and the Titans want to work towards a long-term solution that keeps the receiver in Tennessee, the Colts wouldn’t mind if they are unsuccessful in doing so.
Brown has played six games against Indianapolis and has won four times. In those games, Brown had a combined 21 catches for 344 yards and two touchdowns.
He’s one of the main reasons the Titans are so good and it never hurts to see a division rival get weaker. Brown may ultimately remain in Tennessee but Indy is hoping for a dramatic ending that would get Brown out of the division.
Or, maybe he could stay in the AFC South and just switch teams. The Colts would certainly welcome AJ Brown, but there’s probably a very slim chance the Titans let that happen.
