Former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is still looking to join a team for next season and it could be with the Baltimore Ravens.
Playing in the AFC North is something that Antonio Brown is very familiar with since he has spent the majority of his NFL career with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Currently, the former Steelers wide receiver is still a free agent and it’s unknown if he will actually end up with a team before the start of the 2020 season. However, rumors of him heading back to the AFC North to play for the Baltimore Ravens have been spreading for the past few weeks.
Everything started when Brown was seen working out with current Ravens players, Lamar Jackson and Marquise Brown. Then shortly after, Jackson commented that he would be, “happy,” if Baltimore ended up signing the former Pittsburgh receiver this year.
This was followed by Brown posting a picture on his Instagram account of him wearing a Ravens uniform. And most recently, current Baltimore general manager Eric DeCosta didn’t shut down the idea of his team bringing in the former Steelers receiver before the start of the 2020 season.
So it’s obvious that Brown has an interest in signing with the Ravens. But realistically, he’s going to have an interest in signing with any team at this point in his career.
The most interesting part of all of this though is the interest from Jackson and DeCosta not shutting down the possibility of adding Brown when he was given a perfect opportunity to do so.
If Baltimore had no intention of signing the veteran receiver, their general manager likely would’ve just come out and said so. But he didn’t and now the rumors of Brown coming back to the AFC North to sign with a Pittsburgh rival will continue on.
While Brown would likely be a huge upgrade to the Ravens’ current group of receivers, he is obviously still a big risk for any team given his recent controversial history on and off the field.
If he actually does end up with Baltimore, it’s not hard to imagine that there are at least a few players on the Steelers defense who would love to deliver a nice hit to their former teammate when they face off for the first time.
