Before the Philadelphia Eagles acquired AJ Brown in a draft trade from the Tennessee Titans, other teams also tried to land the Pro Bowl receiver.

Brown said on the raw room that the Kansas City Chiefs and New York Jets tried to trade for him (at 40:50 in the video):

The wide was instead distributed to the Eagles and had a career year, totaling 88 catches for 1,496 yards and 11 touchdowns. He was named a second-team All-Pro and even earned an MVP vote while helping Philadelphia go 14-3 with a trip to the Super Bowl.

8-Orlando Brown

Kansas City Chiefs OT

During the week leading up to the Super Bowl, Brown indicated that he wanted to stay with the Chiefs. Brown received the tag last year and he could be on his way to being tagged again. Brown turned down a long-term deal last year, and negotiations this offseason should be fascinating. In the meantime, the Chiefs are not expected to allow him access to the open market. Marking it at around $20 million — and locking down the left tackle from the line that didn’t allow a sack by the league’s top team in the Super Bowl — seems like a bargain.

LT Orlando Brown Jr.: Almost a no-brainer, and Brown told USA TODAY Sports after the Super Bowl that he expects to be back and protect QB Patrick Mahomes’ blindside in 2023. A franchise tag would guarantee Brown would win 20 million in 2023 given that it was franchised. Last year.

Smith is an exceptional athlete who reminds me a bit of Haason Reddick when he came out of Temple. Smith would get plenty of pass-rush opportunities in Kansas City, thanks to the offense led by Patrick Mahomes.

27. JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR

Best Team Composition: Kansas City Chiefs

I like Smith-Schuster returning to the Chiefs on a short-term contract, given how he was deployed in Andy Reid’s passing game last season. He can work dirty areas of the pitch as a niche target for Mahomes, and he will flex outside to run isolation routes. Smith-Schuster recorded 73 receptions for 933 yards during the regular season, and he also showed up on the Super Bowl stage, catching seven of nine targets for 53 yards.

Zay Flowers WR

Flowers is a smaller wide receiver, but he’s one of the best slot receivers in the draft. With Mecole Hardman and JuJu Smith-Schuster in free agency, Flowers is a bespoke replacement for the types of plays like throwing sweeps and zone breaking concepts that Andy Reid likes to execute.

Derek Carr’s free agency will be a ‘long process,’ says QB brother | ESPN

Carr visited the Jets last weekend and spent several days with the Saints earlier this month, but he is still a free agent since Tuesday, a week after being released by the Raiders. His older brother David Carr, a former NFL quarterback, discussed Derek’s recent visit to the Jets during an interview Monday night.

“He’s had a great journey, but honestly it’s going to be a long process,” David Carr said in an interview with NFL Network. “He really only has the Saints, Raiders and Jets to compare those three places to, so he wants to do his due diligence and see as many places as possible to get an idea of ​​what the best place for him will be. .

The Panthers have also been linked to Carr, but a league source told ESPN’s David Newton that Carolina does not plan to strongly pursue the veteran quarterback immediately.

6. Kareem Hunt, 27, (Cleveland Browns)

Hunt recorded just 678 scrimmage yards and four total touchdowns in 2022, and could play for another team in 2023. The 27-year-old wanted an extension last offseason, didn’t get it and then allegedly been involved in trade negotiations. – but ultimately not processed.

Maybe Hunt could look for a team where he’s the No. 1 back. In his first full season with the Browns in 2020, Hunt recorded 1,145 scrimmage yards and 11 total touchdowns. He has plenty of ball left.

Chiefs-Eagles Super Bowl 2023: Travis Kelce mislined on Skyy Moore’s touchdown

We had already learned that something in this room was not quite right. Previously, it was explained that Moore was lined up on the wrong side of the formation; it was supposed to be wide right instead of wide left. But according to King, it was tight end Travis Kelce who was in the wrong place.

Much like he did on the previous touchdown pass to Kadarius Toney, Kelce was supposed to be lined up on the same side as the main receiver – in this case, Moore – who would start a quick inward throwing motion and then cut back. outward, causing the Eagles secondary to lose track of it. In case Philadelphia covered Moore, Kelce was supposed to be a backup receiver in the same area.

But Kelce was lined up alongside the LAW attack instead of LEFT tackle. Head coach Andy Reid saw that Kelce was in the wrong place and was trying to call a timeout. But according to King (and quarterback coach Matt Nagy), Mahomes simply took him in stride.
