The Tennessee Titans aren’t fielding trade offers for star wide receiver A.J. Brown, sources told ESPN’s Dianna Russini.

Brown is entering the final year of his rookie contract, and with no apparent progress on extension talks between him and Tennessee, Brown’s been the subject of trade speculation. The 24-year-old fueled those rumors lately with a series of cryptic tweets.

Titans general manager Jon Robinson, who said in March there were preliminary talks with Brown, reportedly remains committed to keeping the Pro Bowl pass-catcher in Tennessee long term, though it’s unclear where the negotiations currently stand.

The New York Jets are one team that’s been looking for a high-profile wideout this year. After losing out on Tyreek Hill, New York is keeping an eye on receivers who are entering the final year of their rookie contracts, including Brown, DK Metcalf of the Seattle Seahawks, and Deebo Samuel of the San Francisco 49ers, reports ESPN’s Rich Cimini.

Brown is expected to become one of the NFL’s highest-paid receivers when he inks a new deal. The Ole Miss product has put on a show since Tennessee drafted him in the second round in 2019, topping 1,000 yards in each of his first two seasons while averaging 17.2 yards per reception. Brown notched 869 yards and five touchdowns on 63 catches through 13 games in 2021.
