The Philadelphia Eagles made one of the biggest splashes of the offseason when they acquired wide receiver AJ Brown from the Tennessee Titans. The Pro Bowl talent is already winning fans over before he even steps out onto the field and endearing the Philly faithful with one act of kindness at a time.

Philadelphia Eagles News

Brown recently explained that he paid a visit to the Eagles Pro Shop at Lincoln Financial Field because he wanted to see if his jersey was hanging up for customers. Once he saw that it was, Brown decided to buy a few for the fans in the store at the time. "Showing love" like that is one of his favorite things.

“Ever since I’ve been here they’ve been showing me love. If I go somewhere they’re showing me love. I appreciate it wholeheartedly. And now it’s my job to go do what I do and have fun and play football.”

AJ Brown on Philadelphia fans

It's safe to say Brown has wasted no time getting on the good side of a fan base known for being a passionate bunch. He regularly interacts with fans on social media and is quick to post highlight videos whenever possible. The 25-year-old is prepared to fill a void Philly has had for a long time.

The Eagles have only had four different 1,000-yard receivers in the last 25 years (DeSean Jackson, Terrell Owens, Jeremy Maclin & Kevin Curtis). Meanwhile, Brown has posted at least 1,000 yards in two of his first three NFL seasons to go along with 24 touchdowns and a 16.2 yards per catch mark.

It won't be long before Brown is hauling in passes from quarterback Jalen Hurts in the regular season. For now, Philadelphia has odds set at +3000 to win Super Bowl 57, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
