PHILALDELPHIA — A.J. Brown knows how to stir the pot on social media.

The Eagles receiver went viral on Thursday when he changed his X and Instagram profile pictures to a photo of Patriots legend Tom Brady.

The photo shows Brady yelling while in his iconic No. 12 blue Patriots jersey.

“TB12 is my favorite player ever,” Brown posted on X on Thursday. “I watch the dynasty and it brought back some memories from my childhood. Go look up what he did in 2015 when he was doubted/disrespected. Yeah I see the disrespect. Motivated … yes. That’s it.

“I did not think changing my pfp [profile picture] to the greatest ever would cause controversy. Take Care.”

Brown has since deleted his account.

But the timing is ironic.

The Bills just traded Stefon Diggs to the Texans, and just two years ago the Eagles landed Brown from the Titans in a draft-day deal.

Patriots director of scouting Eliot Wolf said the team has talked with teams about potential wide receiver trades, according to NESN.

But one user discovered Brown followed Patriots quarterback Jacoby Brissett and receiver KJ Osborn recently on Instagram.

However, Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer said the Eagles are not looking to trade Brown and the Patriots have asked about Brown’s availability.

“Philadelphia has gotten inquiries on A.J. Brown,” Breer said on NBC. “They have shut them all down and told other teams that he is not available.”

This isn’t the first time Brown has made waves on social media.

He returned from a hibernation to tweet during the Super Bowl about how he would have been viewed if he had an outburst like Travis Kelce, and previously deleted his X account and mentions of the Eagles on his Instagram page after a report labeled him as a “locker room poison.”
