Maybe you can call him a big-play threat, and you wouldn’t necessarily be wrong. Brown’s 15.4 yards per catch have him ranked 12th in the league– just one season after finishing second in that metric with a staggering 20.2. Through the last two seasons, there have been very few players who have come close to matching Brown’s ability to put up yards in chunks.
You could call him a red-zone specialist too, and you wouldn’t be wrong. Through receiving, rushing, and even one onside kick return, Brown has 21 career touchdowns to his name through his first two seasons. 19 of them have come on receptions, 11 of those have come in the red-zone, and seven of those have come with fewer than 10 yards to go to the endzone. And he doesn’t just get there with his speed, either.
You can call A.J. Brown a possession specialist for his mastery at hauling in contested catches. You can call him the toughest guy on the field, for apparently being recommended season-ending surgery in Week 2, playing through the pain, and putting together a Pro Bowl season. You can call him just about whatever.
But soon, we’ll all be calling him the greatest receiver in the league.
