Two years ago, during the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft, the Eagles pulled off a blockbuster trade, acquiring Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Brown from the Tennessee Titans.

Since arriving, Brown has looked to make his mark. The Eagles could not have hoped for a better outcome in the deal.

On Thursday night, just as the 2024 NFL Draft was set to kick off in Detroit, the Eagles announced that they have agreed to terms with Brown on a three-year extension through the 2029 campaign.

"I'm always just striving to be better. There is always something I can improve on and there's always more. I'm trying to never get satisfied with where I'm at. I don't want to get comfortable. If I get comfortable, it's too late," Brown said late in the 2023 season. "I think about me and my high ceiling. I always try to picture myself at my highest ceiling and then I ask myself, 'Alright, what's holding me back from getting there?' And I try to take those steps to get that place."

In 2022, he broke a 38-year franchise record for the most receiving yards in franchise history with 1,496, on the way to second-team All-Pro honors.

How about his encore in 2023? He set the new single-season franchise mark for most receptions by a wide receiver, with 106, on his way to second-team All-Pro accolades. He's the first Eagles wide receiver with 1,200 or more yards in back-to-back seasons, breaking his own record with 1,456. He broke the NFL record by gaining at least 125 yards in six straight games.

Brown said that his parents, Arthur Brown and Josette Robertson, instilled in him the work ethic and the desire to chase greatness.

"It's kind of just being obsessed with it. That's kind of where I'm at," he added.

As Brown rewrites the team's record book, he's been able to develop a relationship with two of the greatest wide receivers to ever play in Harold Carmichael and Mike Quick.

"Those are great guys and they give great advice. It's good to hear you're doing really well from those guys because it means a lot, so just to see those guys and see the pictures on the wall, hopefully, I can be up there one day," Brown said.

At this point, it's not if, but when.
