The Philadelphia Eagles sure didn't sound like a happy locker room after their closer-than-expected win over the New York Giants on Christmas. Several players voiced their displeasure with the state of the team, but perhaps the most notable comments were from wide receiver A.J. Brown, who declined to speak with the media since he said he had nothing nice to say.
Brown's postgame statement certainly raised eyebrows, especially considering he's been vocal at various points of the year when there was something going on he didn't like.
Fans have been waiting to hear from the star wideout as a result, and he finally broke his silence on Tuesday.
Brown posted a video to social media with the caption "Happy Holidays." The clip was a near-minute recap of a recent event with his foundation where he hosted Christmas shopping experience for "six deserving high school students from the local community," according to a press release.
The video shows the clear joy Brown was able to bring these kids, who had smiles from ear to ear as they were able to pick anything from essentials to personal enjoyments like a PS5 console. Brown didn't just appear for a photo-op, though; he's seen helping the students pick out their presents by walking through the store with them and talking about their choices.
This clip is sure to warm anyone's heart during this winter season. Much has been made about Brown's non-comments following Monday's win, but it's obvious whatever unhappiness he might have felt in that moment is having no impact on his excitement to make an impact in the Philly community.
Hopefully the joy of snapping a three-game losing streak and making several families' Christmases even more special will give Brown a boost to close the year strong. The Eagles will certainly need the star at the top of his game if they're to take back the NFC's No. 1 see for the playoffs.
