A.J. Brown recently called into 94 WIP in Philadelphia to make it clear that he wants to continue his career as a member of the Eagles.

"I have no problem. I want to be here, it's as simple as that," Brown said during his impromptu media session. "I love where I'm at, it's as simple as that. Next question. ... Honestly, like I said the other day, I could have plans but also know it's a business. But I can tell you that I want to be here. That's all I can say."

There has been rampant speculation regarding Brown's level of happiness with the organization, but these recent quotes should help to put Eagles fans at ease. The Eaglies initially traded for Brown during the 2022 NFL Draft, and then subsequently signed him to a four-year, $100 million extension.

No, A.J. Brown doesn't have any beef with quarterback Jalen Hurts.

Brown also did his best to end any speculation that there is friction in his relationship with Eagles star quarterback Jalen Hurts.

"You know, I think that's sort of BS. I'm not going to get into me and his relationship on the air," Brown said. "But it's total BS, you know what I'm saying. It wasn't a problem when I was on my six-game streak. They weren't talking about that then, so they only started talking about that when we started losing. Of course, you see friction from everybody, from the coaches, the players and from everybody. So, there you go."

It's good that there's no drama between receiver and quarterback, as the duo has been extremely productive together. During his two seasons in Philadelphia, Brown has 2,952 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns. He was named to the Pro Bowl in both of his seasons as an Eagle so far.

It's time for the Eagles to move forward.

Now that Brown has addressed the rumors and speculation, it's officially time for the Eagles (and Eagles fans) to move on from last season and focus fully on the future.

The team has already added new coordinators since the season ended, and free agency and the draft are both rapidly approaching. Both should provide the Eagles will ample opportunity to improve the roster on both sides of the ball.

Last season didn't end the way anyone wanted it to, but the team should be in position to contend again, as long as the front office takes care of business over the offseason. The next few months will be huge for Philadelphia.
