AJ Brown had very high praise for Marcus Mariota after the veteran quarterback signed with the Atlanta Falcons earlier this week. Some people thought the compliment might have been a subtle shot at Ryan Tannehill, but Brown insists it had nothing to do with that.

Brown reacted to the news of Mariota going to the Falcons by tweeting that Mariota is the “best leader I ever been around.” The Tennessee Titans star deleted the tweet, but BroBible captured a screenshot. That wasn’t the first time Brown had said that about Mariota, as he made the same comment after the former second overall pick signed with the Las Vegas Raiders two years ago.
