Antonio Brown, a free agent and former All-Pro successor, is currently serving an eight-game suspension, which is expected to end in just a few weeks. And once Brown’s ban is over, the Seattle Seahawks are expected to push for him to sign.
However, in Adam Shefter’s report that Seattle plans to continue the seven-time Pro Bowler, the ESPN analyst mentioned that other teams will also be intrigued by the idea of adding Brown.
Until Shefter explicitly mentions crows, it’s worth thinking: can and should Baltimore turn to Brown?
There have been rumors of Brown’s potential to come to the city of charm for months. And there are many reasons why Baltimore would benefit from Brown̵
For starters, crows need the wide position of the receiver.
Second-year veteran Marquis “Hollywood” Brown is one of Lamar Jackson’s quarterback goals, but the two have not yet fully clicked a week. Outside of it, Baltimore received almost no production from the rest of its distribution. Miles Boykin was expected to take a step forward in 2020 as the team’s number 2, but has only 11 assists for 122 yards this season.
If Baltimore hopes to advance to the playoffs, something it hasn’t done in the last two seasons will simply need more output from its wide receiver.
Second, Antonio Brown and the Marquis of Brown do not just share the same last name; they are cousins. The two worked together during the off-season, dating back to the days of the Marquis in Oklahoma, and even worked with Jackson this summer. The chemistry is already there.
“I’ve been working with AB since I’ve been in college, so I know what it’s all about,” the Marquise Brown said in August. “He is a man who will push you, he is a man who takes care of his body. I learned a lot about him, just to make sure everything was okay, even when you are not injured, always work on yourself and always better yourself. “
The character problems around Antonio Brown have been documented at almost every one of his previous stops. However, the Marquis Brown does not think that his cousin would cause a problem in the locker room in Baltimore.
“AB, he’s a man who will get the best out of you,” said the Marquise Brown. “I feel like he would fit in this locker room. He is a person who is competitive and will go there and give 100 percent. Seeing things like this will make other boys want to do the same. “
In April, Antonio Brown received the support of the Ravens quarterback. Jackson said he hoped Baltimore would sign Brown, but noted that was not his decision.
“I will be happy if they sign it,” Jackson said. “He is a great player. He showed it every year he’d been with the Steelers in the past, but that’s not my decision. “
And on Wednesday, shortly after Schefter’s report, another prominent Ravens player turned to social media to say he hoped the team would add the four-time All-Pro hunter
When Brown was in Pittsburgh, Baltimore saw twice every year what Brown was capable of. So, it’s only natural that they’d like to add it to the mix if it’s available.
