Antonio Brown working out with Ravens Lamar Jackson, Marquise Brown
Former All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown might have a hard time finding his way back into the NFL, but what if he teamed up with the reigning league MVP?
Brown worked out with Baltimore Ravens star quarterback Lamar Jackson and receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown on Wednesday. Marquise is AB’s cousin, and he tweeted out a picture of the trio with the caption “We Activated.”

However, Jamison Hensley of ESPN reported the Ravens have not been focused on the wide receiver position in free agency:
“Antonio Brown, a free-agent wide receiver, caught a 50-yard pass from the reigning NFL Most Valuable Player on a dead sprint in a video posted on Jackson’s Instagram account Wednesday. There was also a picture showing Jackson with his arms draped around Antonio and Marquise Brown posted on Twitter.
This social media connection will cause many to speculate Antonio Brown is joining Baltimore. But the Ravens haven’t gotten involved in the free-agent market for wide receivers because it’s believed they feel the draft is the best way to improve that position group this offseason.”
Wide receiver is certainly a position of quality depth in the upcoming draft, and a number of teams have focused on improving other areas due in part to a weak group of wideouts in free agency.
Naturally, Brown would easily be the cream of the crop at wide receiver, but there are still plenty of question marks with respect to his character after a number of off-field incidents over the past eight-plus months.
Still, from a football perspective, seeing AB line up opposite “Hollywood” with Jackson under center would be a terrifying prospect for opposing defenses.
