Eagles A.J. Brown had no fun playing for Mike Vrabel

Written by Tony Ghaul

Philadelphia Eagles WR A.J. Brown said it was “no fun” playing for Tennessee Titans Head Coach Mike Vrabel. Brown was a second-round pick of the Titans in 2019 and spent three seasons there before being traded to the Eagles during the 2022 NFL draft.

Now a member of the 3-0 Eagles, the talented WR is having fun, expecting a new child, $100 million richer and playing with his best friend Jalen Hurts.

Brown was a guest on “The Crew NYC” recently and said that playing for Vrabel was “no fun,” and compared the Titans head coach’s approach to that of New England Patriots Head Coach, Bill Belichick.

“I got a lot of respect for [Vrabel], but he’s the Belichick way. Everything is lock in, no fun over there; we’re going to get the job done,” Brown explained. “But over here, [Head Coach Nick Sirianni] is just letting us have fun, do what we do, let us express our personality. And I think that’s huge.”

Brown’s quote will only add more intrigue to his first meeting with his old team, which comes in Week 13 in Philadelphia.
