The Facts: Brown received his financial wish, and with it came a new teammate with plenty of potential. So much potential, in fact, Brown believes the Eagles have a rare pairing. "In my opinion, Smitty (receiver DeVonta Smith ) is a wide receiver No. 1," Brown said Friday. "And he going against a cornerback No. 2, I expect Smitty to dominate. Just taking pressure off each other. Even being on the same sides, so you can't really double. It's great having another great wideout besides you."
Diehards Line:Brown has a little bit of experience playing alongside a highly talented player thanks to his one season spent in Tennessee with Julio Jones, but it was largely a wash, due to Jones' struggle to stay healthy and available. Smith, on the other hand, is young and just completed his first NFL season, catching 64 passes for 916 yards and five touchdowns in an offense that made a significant shift toward running first in the second half of the season. With pass-catching talents like Brown and Smith, Philadelphia is expected to be more potent -- especially if third-year quarterback Jalen Hurts takes the next step in his professional development.
