A.J. Brown draws Terrell Owens comps in first game with Eagles

By , Audacy Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles traded the No. 18 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft to the Tennessee Titans for wide receiver A.J. Brown this offseason, rewarding him with a four-year/$100 million deal -- which includes $57 million in guarantees -- on the way in the door.

In his first game as an Eagle, Brown looked all the part of a superstar wideout. Brown had 10 catches for 155 yards, with 128 of those coming in an explosive first half for the 25-year-old. Things got a little too close for comfort for the Eagles, but they ultimately held on to win 38-35. Brown's big day was crucial given that DeVonta Smith didn't record a catch in Week 1.

Here's a look at how social media responded to a monster debut with the Eagles from Brown, with some even going as far as mentioning him in the same sentence as Hall of Famer Terrell Owens:
