It doesn’t seem like A.J. Brown wants to be a New York Jet

If subtle Twitter antics are to be taken as a legitimate signal of true intentions, then it appears clear that Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown has no desire to join the New York Jets.

On Friday, Brown sent out another one of his infamous cryptic tweets, writing, “If it’s not mutual, I don’t want it”. One Jets fan replied to the tweet saying, “The [J]ets want you I promise,” to which another fan replied, “[Brown] doesn’t”. Brown liked the second reply, seemingly suggesting he agrees with the fan’s sentiment that he does not wish to join New York.

As he prepares for a contract year, Brown’s name has been embroiled in trade rumors throughout the past few weeks, with many hopeful Jets fans identifying him as a possible trade target for New York. San Francisco’s Deebo Samuel and Seattle’s D.K. Metcalf are two other contract-year stars who have been frequently mentioned in (mostly unsubstantiated) trade rumors.

With the NFL draft now only 13 days away and no big-ticket moves appearing imminent, it is becoming increasingly likely that the Jets will not make a splashy addition at the wide receiver position before Roger Goodell comes to the podium in Las Vegas. New York will enter the draft with a hole at the wide receiver position unless general manager Joe Douglas pulls a rabbit out of his hat on the trade market.

The Jets’ lone move of note at the wide receiver position this offseason was their decision to re-sign Braxton Berrios. No new players have been added to the unit.

At the moment, the Jets’ wide receiver room consists of Berrios, Elijah Moore, Corey Davis, Denzel Mims, Jeff Smith, D.J. Montgomery, Tarik Black, and Rodney Adams.

Can’t blame him for not wanting to leave the AFC #1 seed for a rebuild.

To those who do not believe it I say this, The Jets will draft a receiver or receivers in this upcoming draft.

Some guys are just happier living and working in the middle of nowhere. It’s all good. Let’s just move on to the draft and get our own AJ Brown, or 2! – on cheap rookie deals.
