It doesn’t seem real for the Titans to have a rookie wide receiver like A.J. Brown. If you have been a fan of this team for any length of time you know how many guys we have had come through here with potential that was never realized on the field. Brown has produced at a level unlike anything we have ever seen.
He is pretty easily the Offensive Rookie of the Year. We are going to see a ton of these posts over the next few weeks leading up to when he is actually given the award. Bill Barnwell wrote his end of season awards post, and had a lot of nice things to say about Brown:
With one week to go, he’s averaging 19.3 yards per catch on his 48 receptions. That’s the second-highest mark for any rookie receiver with 40 catches or more in the year in which he was drafted, and almost everybody who created that many big plays as a rookie ended up producing a meaningful NFL career. There are players such as Randy Moss and Jerry Rice in the top 10 of that group.
It has been so much fun to watch. It was also really cool to see all the kids that go his jersey for Christmas and how much Brown enjoyed it:
Hopefully this is just the first of many seasons like this for Brown.
