Philadelphia Eagles All-Pro WR A.J. Brown deleted his Twitter account and scrubbed all Eagles-related posts from his Instagram feed. 

Perhaps it means nothing, but perhaps it means a whole lot. 

There have been reports and rumors – as the Eagles slumped into the postseason by losing five of six, then got routed by the Buccaneers in Wild Card Weekend – of a dysfunctional locker room. Brown was one of the more vocal players regarding the situation. And now he’s taken action. Not real action, but social media action. 

Bookies.com veteran oddsmaker Adam Thompson has broken down the landscape and has released his next-team NFL odds on Brown, if he forces his way out of the City of Brotherly Love. Remember to place your bets using BetMGM $200 bonus code BOOKIES when placing your wagers!

Brown is, by most metrics, one of the top 10 receivers in the NFL, and that’s a conservative statement. This season he ranks seventh in receptions, fifth in yards and 17th in TDs. His rating at Pro Football Focus ranks him eighth. 

But he also doesn’t come cheap. His cap hit for 2024 is a pretty modest $12.4 million, but that number more than doubles for 2025 to $26.5 million, and explodes to $41.5M in ’26. Chances are the deal gets re-negotiated before that final season. 

In today’s modern NFL, most teams would rank “WR” as a position of need heading into the off-season. About a half-dozen teams would be unable to pull a trade, given their salary cap issues. Many others, however, could and would. 

When it comes to major need and major money, and an aggressive front office looking to improve now, a few teams stand out. 

The Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts and Cincinnati Bengals each have coffers full of cap space to use this offseason. Each has a young QB it wants to build around, and each has a need at receiver. Houston and Indy, especially, require an upgrade outside. 

 The Bengals have decisions to make when it comes to their own free agent WRs, but Brown could come cheaper than Tyler Boyd. Pairing Brown with Ja’Marr Chase in an offense led by Joe Burrow? Yes, please. 

Given the struggles of their current crop of wideouts, the Kansas City Chiefs are surely going to be in the market for a receiver. Money is tighter in KC than some other contenders, but if KC falls short this off-season due to shoddy WR play, it will find a way to make a splash. 

The Arizona Cardinals have decided to build around Kyler Murray. The verdict is out as to whether Hollywood Brown can be a WR1 in this offense (he managed only 574 yards in 14 games, albeit with a slew of unimpressive QB efforts), but couple his speed with Brown’s size, and a formidable duo is formed. 

The New England Patriots need an overhaul on offense and they own the second-most available cap space for 2024. The Chicago Bears will either draft a new QB or a star WR. If it’s the former, they could look to Brown to bring another weapon in a revamped offense. 

The Field is led by other teams that could use a WR, and/or have the cash to make a splash and bolster a strength. That includes the Detroit Lions, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons
