In a recent interview, Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Darius Slay didn't hold back his admiration for teammate A.J. Brown, hailing him as the second-best receiver in the NFL. However, Slay believes that Miami Dolphins' Tyreek Hill currently holds the crown as the league's top receiver.

"He for sure is the second best receiver in the league right now," Slay said via Big Play Slay. "You can say what you want, and argue with your mama, A.J. Swole Batman is top two right now, I gotta give it to Cheetah at number one. But A.J. for sure is number two right now, and I'm talking about putting on a clinic. Deep ball, short routes, medium routes, every route he's running on the route tree, he's making it work man he does it all. A lot of guys can't run every route like A.J. can. So that's why he's definitely at my number two right now, playing at an elite, elite level."

Slay's choice to highlight Hill as the best receiver in football is supported by the impressive numbers he has been putting up this season. In seven games, Hill has recorded 53 receptions, accumulating 902 yards and seven touchdowns.

However, Brown is not far behind Hill in terms of statistics. With 52 catches for 809 yards and three touchdowns, the Eagles' receiver has been consistently delivering exceptional performances. Brown's five consecutive games with over 125 yards place him in an exclusive club, with only Calvin Johnson achieving a similar feat in 2012.

In a standout performance during Week 7 against the Miami Dolphins, Brown outshined Hill with 10 catches for 137 yards and a touchdown, while Hill managed 11 catches for 88 yards and a touchdown. Brown's remarkable display earned him the title of NFC Offensive Player of the Week, marking the first time he has received this accolade in his career.

Looking ahead, the Philadelphia Eagles and Brown are preparing for an away game against the Washington Commanders on Sunday at 1 p.m. As Brown continues to impress on the field, his status as the NFL's second-best receiver only grows stronger.
