An exploding receiver market is causing problems for many NFL teams, but the Tennessee Titans don’t intend to let A.J. Brown leave.

“I do not foresee that happening,” said Titans general manager Jon Robinson on Thursday when asked about the possibility of trading the star wideout, according to team reporter Jim Wyatt.

The Titans reportedly aren’t fielding trade offers for Brown. Robinson has consistently emphasized his desire to keep the wideout, but that hasn’t ended speculation about Brown’s future ahead of a contract year.

The 24-year-old is seeking his first extension. Robinson said they’ve begun discussions for a new deal and recently met in person.

“We’ve made it public how we feel about A.J. and how we want him to be a part of this football team,” Robinson added, according to Emily Proud of WKRN News 2.

Brown, who racked up 2,995 yards and 24 touchdowns across his first three NFL seasons, is reportedly skipping ongoing voluntary workouts.

A host of other young receivers are in line for new contracts, including the Seattle Seahawks’ D.K. Metcalf and Washington Commanders’ Terry McLaurinDeebo Samuel requested a trade Wednesday from the San Francisco 49ers amid stalled contract talks.

Davante Adams‘ and Tyreek Hill‘s recent record-setting deals are seemingly causing the negotiations to stagnate.

Adams and Hill reset the top of the receiver market this offseason after being traded to the Las Vegas Raiders and Miami Dolphins, respectively. Adams briefly set a new annual benchmark at $28.25 million before Hill topped him with a $30-million average salary.
