Is A.J. Brown a top-five wide receiver in the NFL? EA Sports doesn't seem to think so.
In revealing their ratings for wide receivers and safeties, Brown — who was fourth in the NFL with 1,496 receiving yards and third with 11 touchdown catches last season — was ranked the ninth-best receiver for the launch of the upcoming Madden NFL 24, receiving a 91 overall rating.
Brown was given a 91 in speed and a 93 in catching. His catch rating is lower than teammate DeVonta Smith's (94), though Smith is coming in at a lower 87 overall but still with the same 91 in speed.
The Eagles have arguably one of the best 1-2 wideout punches in football in Brown and Smith, but their 91 and 87 overall ratings respectively seem to undervalue them just a little bit. Here's a look at the full top 10:
EA also revealed their safety ratings this week, which is probably the Eagles' weakest position. Terrell Edmunds is a 78 overall, Justin Evans and Reed Blankenship are 73 overalls, and K'Von Wallace and rookie Sidney Brown are 72s respectively.
The new game will drop on all platforms on August 18th.
