Former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown currently doesn’t have a home in the NFL, but the Baltimore Ravens could be a potential landing spot.
Things haven’t exactly gone according to plan for Antonio Brown since his departure from the Pittsburgh Steelers last year.
Brown figured the grass was going to be much greener once he got his wish for the Steelers to trade him. But the veteran receiver ended up flaming out with the Oakland Raiders before the 2019 regular season even began and he then had a cup of coffee with the New England Patriots until his tenure there ended as well.
Currently, Brown is without an NFL team for the upcoming season and his future in the league is still up in the air. However, this hasn’t prevented other NFL players from expressing their interest in teaming up with the talented receiver.
Recently, Brown was seen working out with Lamar Jackson and Marquise Brown of the Baltimore Ravens. On Tuesday, Jackson spoke with members of the media via video conference and he was asked if he would like the Ravens to pursue the former Pittsburgh receiver.
"“I’d be happy if (we) signed him. but it’s not my decision.”"
With Jackson coming off an MVP season in 2019, the opinion of the Baltimore quarterback matters a lot more these days. So if he wants the Ravens to go out and sign someone, the chances of it actually happening are much higher than they were even just a year ago.
Jackson’s teammate and fellow pass-catcher, Marquise Brown, is a cousin of the former Steelers receiver, so there are already some connections between him and Baltimore.
The Ravens have taken some risks on controversial players in the past, so them bringing in Brown wouldn’t be a complete shock. Baltimore might actually be one of the few locker rooms around the NFL that could handle someone like the former Pittsburgh receiver.
Brown has never come out and said he would have interest in signing with the Ravens. But at this point, he would likely join any team that offers him a job to keep playing football.
