Antonio Brown speaks out on possibly joining Lamar Jackson, Ravens
Antonio Brown played just one game in the 2019 season. That was not due to injury though.
The superstar wide receiver bounced around a few teams before ultimately being released by the New England Patriots after just one game. And no team picked him up after that. This was because of a number of off-field issues. Issues that teams could not look past.
Since then, Brown has remained pretty outspoken. However, he’s also kept out of trouble (for the most part) and at least he hasn’t been in the news every day anymore.
With that in mind, a team will likely want to take a chance on him. The off-field issues might be a concern, but the on-field talent is far too high.
Due to that talent, Antonio Brown has been linked to a number of teams. That includes the Baltimore Ravens. According to B/R Gridiron, Brown had a very quick comment on the thought of joining the Ravens and 2019 MVP quarterback Lamar Jackson.

That could definitely be a fun connection. Jackson was absolutely unstoppable in 2019. And he did so with a very young and inexperienced receiving corps. Imagine giving him one of the best wide receivers football has seen in years.
However, there’s another side to this coin. A lot of people think it would be a mistake to bring Antonio Brown onto a team with a young and learning quarterback.
Yes, Jackson won the MVP last season, but he’s still growing. Brown has had issues with quarterbacks before, and that might turn off a lot of teams. It might not be great for a young QBs growth if they have to try and deal with a veteran receiver constantly going to battle with him.
That could be a turnoff for the Ravens. Why mess with a formula that worked so well for them last year? With their youth, great things could be in their future.
It’s hard to turn down the talent that is Brown though. And it certainly would create fireworks on the field.
Let’s just say, this is something to keep an eye on.
