NFL Superstar Expresses Interest in Playing Major League Baseball

An NFL star expressed interest in being a two-sport athlete.

Titans wide receiver AJ Brown took to Twitter just a couple days after Tennessee's divisional-round loss to the Bengals to express his interest in playing baseball.

Here is what he said on Twitter.

Sometimes I think about playing both sports again. Padres all I need is a workout. I still got. I promise I will do better than Michael Jordan in baseball.

Why the San Diego Padres for Brown, though? Well, he was actually drafted by the Padres as an outfielder in the 19th round of the 2016 MLB Draft. That almost came to fruition as he signed with the Padres, making him ineligible to continue playing college baseball.

However, Brown also wanted to keep playing football at Ole Miss. He was later drafted in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans, where he has emerged as one of the best players at his position.

Brown is another one of those cases like Russell Wilson (drafted by the Rockies), Kyler Murray (drafted by the A’s), and Tom Brady (drafted by the Expos), all of whom chose football careers over baseball.
