1. A.J. Brown, Wide Receiver

There's no way the Philadelphia Eagles will want to trade A.J. Brown but while things are quiet right now, it would be hard to say Brown wasn't frustrated late in the season. Brown, who went off for a stretch early on, had started to show signs of frustration amidst the team's collapse late in the year.

His body language during interviews was a red flag and then ahead of the Wild Card game against the Tampa Bay Bucs, Brown drew some attention to himself with a social media stunt. The Pro Bowl wideout decided the postseason was a good time to delete any mention of the team from his social media accounts. He then missed the game due to a knee injury.

Brown, who was added in a draft-day trade in 2022, had 1,496 yards and 11 touchdowns in his first season with the Eagles. He followed that up with 1,456 yards and seven touchdowns in 2023 but it felt as though he would have much more. Brown had six games in a row from Sept. 25 through Oct. 29 with at least 125 yards receiving.

He cooled off considerably after this with only more game in the following nine contests with more than 100 yards. His frustration with the offense was evident and while the addition of Kellen Moore could help him move on, it might also be a deterrant.

Brown surely saw how much CeeDee Lamb improved when Moore left the Dallas Cowboys — and was no longer restriced to constant curl routes. Perhaps that could be all it takes for him to ask for a trade the same way Haason Reddick did.
