According to Rapoport, this would likely result in Brown being one of the highest-paid receivers in the NFL.
A top-five salary for the receiver position would require the Titans to pay Brown $20 million or more per season.
Tennessee would have their franchise tag available in 2023 if need be, but it sounds like they could have an agreement in place well before then.
Brown, 24, is a former second-round pick of the Titans back in 2019. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $5,506,368 rookie contract including a $2,130,812 signing bonus.
Brown is in line to be an unrestricted free agent in 2023.
In 2021, Brown appeared in 13 games for the Titans and caught 63 passes for 869 yards receiving and five touchdowns to go along with 10 yards rushing.
