If the connection between Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts and wide receiver A.J. Brown reminds anyone of the connection that was had between former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb and Hall of Fame receiver Terrell Owens during their time with the Eagles, that shouldn’t come as a shock.
McNabb had one of the best seasons of his pro career in 2004 when he and Owens were able to hook up for 77 catches, 1,200 yards, and 14 touchdowns.
The former Eagles quarterback also remembers how quickly his relationship with the polarizing wide receiver crumbled, and he recently shared that something similar could be brewing between Hurts and Brown.
After seeing this, Brown took to social media on Tuesday to respond to McNabb’s thoughts (via Dov Kleiman on X).

In today’s world, where everything is heavily scrutinized on the internet, it’s no longer surprising when people attempt to make something out of nothing.
This seems to be the case here, as Brown claims that whatever he and Hurts recently disagreed about, it’s been discussed, and the two have moved on.
Just because McNabb was unable to maintain his relationship with Owens during their time together in Philadelphia, it doesn’t mean that the same outcome is going to happen for Hurts and Brown.
The Eagles’ current No. 1 wide receiver has been on fire recently, as he’s finished with at least six catches and 125 yards in each of the team’s last four games.
So it seems like the connection between Hurts and Brown is just fine, and it also needs to remain that way if Philadelphia is going to get back to the Super Bowl this season.NEXT: A.J. Brown Reacts To Criticism From Eagles Legend
