A.J. Brown breaks silence after report calls him part of Eagles’ ‘locker room poison’

Eagles wide receiver A.J. Brown defended his silence following Philadelphia's startling upset defeat to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday

— and termed a story by Marcus Hayes of The Philadelphia Inquirer that he's the cause of "locker room poison" "bulls-t" on Wednesday.

"I didn't want to be negative, so I didn't speak to the media after the game," Brown told reporters Wednesday while standing at his locker at the team's practice facility. 

"I had already adopted the mindset that we were going through a difficult period, and as the person I am, I simply had to return to work."

"And, as I said after the game [against the Cardinals], I was raised to say that if I don't have anything good to say, I don't say anything at all." 

Brown refused to talk to media following a 35-31 loss to Arizona at Lincoln Financial Field, and some suspected that he was dissatisfied with his four catches for 53 yards.

Brown claimed that his annoyance stemmed from his teammate wideout DeVonta Smith's ankle injury in the fourth quarter, not from play calling. 

"We're gonna need, I'm gonna need, Smitty moving forward," he went on to say. "That was it."
