Brown was tabled a deal worth over $3 million by the Warriors in the pre-season as one of the biggest offers ever made to a player yet to play first grade, hence his interest in pursuing all options
“There’s been talk all around it but it’s week-to-week really,” Brown told the Sydney Morning Herald.
“When 2019 comes around you’d rather go fishing if other clubs are interested in me but you never know.
“At the moment I’m comfortable here.”
Brown admitted to being overwhelmed by the seven-figure pay check that was presented to him by the Warriors.
“Anything to do with million, being a little kid you always say I want to be a millionaire,” Brown said.
“When I saw that I had a sit down with my manager and had a think about it. We just knew that if I was to be a good halfback things could be bigger than that.”
The Auckland product is still to adjusting to life as a professional athlete and how to deal with the day-to-day.
“The Warriors thing was the first shock with the media and what it’s like when that came out,” he said.
“One day I woke up and my phone was blowing up. I ended up deleting Facebook, that was the best way to go about it.
“Ever since that because it was such a massive thing everything else has come easy.”
The departure of Corey Norman opened up an opportunity for Brown as now shapes as one of the Eels more important players.
“Three months ago I knew I had the pre-season ahead of me and I just had to get through that and prove myself,” he said.
“In all honesty I kind of did freak out when all the stuff was going on. I was looking around thinking there’s just me left.”
