Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver AJ Brown revealed why he decided to retire from hosting a youth football camp in Nashville.
Wide receivers have been on the move this NFL offseason. On the first night of the NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans traded AJ Brown to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for a first-round pick. It was then revealed that the Eagles signed Brown to a four-year contract extension.
On Friday, May 20, Brown issued a statement indicating that he withdrew from hosting a youth football camp scheduled for June in Nashville because of his peace, which was “threatened by adults who feel a way because I was swapped. ” Brown apologized to the children, saying he did not want to endanger himself.

“I’m so sorry I failed your children and many others, but I do not want to put myself in a place where my peace will be threatened by adults who feel a way because I was swapped,” Brown wrote, h / t ProFootballTalk. “I am all the bad words it is to take care of MY FAMILY! If you are not ready, just take a look at social media. I am a man first and I will always do what I feel is right for me and my family. People are bored and it’s fine, but it’s not that serious when it comes to me. People can not respect me on social media, and that’s fine, but being disrespectful to my face is a whole other thing, and I do not tolerate it on any level. So forgive me for not putting myself in a place where my peace could be threatened, because if something happens and I react, I am the one who has everything to lose and is not willing to risk my peace, my family or my job.
“I would love to do everyone’s everyday, but not if I put my own at stake. Please do not say that nothing will happen, because no one knows. I’m sure someone will still have a problem with this, and that’s fine too. If you can not understand it, then it’s because you do not want to. Beware! Love. “
Brown was looking for a new contract with the Titans when his rookie contract expired at the end of the 2022 season. In the end, both sides could not reach an agreement, which resulted in Tennessee negotiating a deal with Philadelphia. And it happened in the middle of the first round of the draft.
It was revealed shortly after the deal was announced that the Eagles and Brown had agreed terms on a four-year, $ 100 million contract. Meanwhile, the Titans used their newly acquired 18th overall pick to pick the Arkansas wideout Treylon Burks.
Brown apologized for withdrawing from the camp, but he says he did so to take care of his safety.
