• It may take lucrative deal to convince A.J. Brown to stay with the Titans
  • Titans GM affirms that the team has no plans of trading Brown away amid murmurs
  • His next contract may depend on how much Deebo Samuel will get in his next deal

The NFL Draft is a week away, and there could be surprise deals happening in the coming days.

However, any NFL trades that may happen may not include the Tennessee Titans as far as A.J. Brown is concerned.

No less than Titans general manager Jon Robinson shed light on the matter.

“I do not foresee that happening,” Robinson stated at the Titans’ pre-draft news conference as quoted by USA Today.

The Titans' general manager’s stance is hardly surprising considering it was a topic that he had already commented on at the NFL owners' meeting held last month.

At the time, Robinson mentioned how he wanted to keep Brown in Tennessee for a long time.

The executive also mentioned that he wanted to extend the contract of the Pro Bowler in the offseason.

Brown is entering the final year of his rookie deal. So far, he has had 185 receptions for 2,995 yards and 24 touchdowns in 43 games with the Titans.

The native of Mississippi could earn as much as $20 million annually in a new deal according to contract expert Joel Corry.

“We’ve had some discussions with his reps,” Robinson said of contract negotiations with Brown. “He was here a couple weeks ago. I talked to him. We’re working through that. Not going to get into any details with contract negotiations; never have really done that. But we’ve made it public about how we feel about A.J and how we want him to be apart of this football team.”

“A.J. knows how we feel about him and how much he means to this football team."

In recent weeks, receivers such as Stefon Diggs, Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams got new mega-deals.

The latest name to be added to that mix is Deebo Samuel of the San Francisco 49ers.

Given the skyrocketing deals that receivers have been getting, all eyes are on what Samuel could be getting.

There is no telling how much that will be, meaning that the forecasted $20 million contract by Corry could be more.
