First, the wideout is just 24 years old and his best years are ahead of him.
Second, the Eagles gave up only their 18th and 101st overall selections in the 2022 NFL Draft to acquire an elite wide receiver.
Third, his cap count doesn’t hurt the team’s financial flexibility.
Even the $30 million base salary in the final year of his contract could be a bargain given the rate by which the salary cap increases.
When new television deals kick in, the cap might escalate at a rapid rate.
But more importantly, the Eagles will benefit from adding Brown because he won’t let quarterback Jalen Hurts down.

When asked about playing with Jalen Hurts, the former Ole Miss standout said, “I’m going to go above and beyond for this team and him.”
That’s a great declaration from a player who is looking for a new atmosphere.
Scary Times Ahead For Eagles’ Opponents
Philadelphia would be difficult to stop if all three of them go above and beyond for their squad.
Meanwhile, Hurts will gain more confidence in throwing the ball because he has a talented bunch of wideouts.
But aside from the boost in their passing game, Philadelphia also remains as one of the best run teams in the NFL.
Once the receivers wear out the linebackers and defensive backs, it be up to their backfield crew to run circles around defensive linemen.
If everything clicks, Brown, Hurts, and the Eagles can cruise through the opposition.
