The Eagles then gave him a four-year, $100 million contract.
In exchange, the Titans got Philadelphia’s 18th and 101st overall selections in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Tennessee then used the 18th pick to get Arkansas wideout Treylon Burks.
He was the sixth wide receiver selected in the first round, signaling a deep talent pool at the position.
Taken before him were Drake London, Garrett Wilson, Chris Olave, Jameson Williams, and Jahan Dotson.
At that point, the 2021 First-Team All-SEC wideout was the best player on the board at wide receiver.
Burks had a breakout season in his final year with the Razorbacks, finishing with 1,104 yards and 11 touchdowns on 66 receptions.
He also added a rushing touchdown and 112 yards on the ground.
The 6-foot-2 wide receiver also had a strong Scouting Combine after running the 40-yard dash in 4.55 seconds and manifesting a 35-inch vertical jump.
Therefore, drafting him was a no-brainer for the Titans and that’s why both parties already agreed to a deal.
The Titans and first round WR Treylon Burks have agreed to terms on his 4-year, $14,369,590 fully guaranteed contract with a fifth-year team option.
Rookie contracts coming together quickly.

ESPN’s Field Yates tweeted, “The Titans and first round WR Treylon Burks have agreed to terms on his 4-year, $14,369,590 fully guaranteed contract with a fifth-year team option.”
Breakdown Of Burks’ Rookie Contract
Part of Burks’ deal is a $7.6 million prorated bonus and an $862,500 roster bonus.
Burks will receive a base salary of $705,000 in 2022 and $939,413 in 2023.
Those figures will go up to $1.5 million in 2024 and $2.6 million in 2025.
The Titans also have a fifth-year option on Burks because he was drafted in the first round.
As Brown’s replacement, Burks will have a big shoes to fill.
Still, former Offensive Player of the Year Derrick Henry will dominate the snaps on offense, especially now that he’s back at full strength.
