Marquise Brown earning huge compliments from Ravens’ offensive coordinator
Brown had a great rookie year, but the expectations for 2020 are even higher after a full offseason with the team. Even if the Ravens haven’t been able to hold workouts at the training facility, Roman believes Brown has taken a big step forward.
Roman on WR Marquise Brown: "All of us to a man we're saying, wow, once Hollywood has a real offseason, that's going to be something. I really think he's had a great offseason physically."

“All of us to a man we’re saying, wow, once Hollywood has a real offseason, that’s going to be something. I really think he’s had a great offseason physically.”
As a rookie, Brown showed some flashes of being a true No. 1 receiver. He played in 14 games as a rookie, catching 46 passes for 584 yards and seven touchdowns. At times, Brown was limited because of a Lisfranc injury which caused him to miss practices.
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said earlier this offseason (via PennLive.com) that he was excited to see what Brown could do when he is fully healthy:
“That’s going to be really interesting to see, because his talent is at a high level … His motivation is at a high level. His hands are better, and really kind of a lot better, than we thought. Not that we didn’t think he had good hands, but he’s got really good hands. So all those things, I can’t wait to see when he gets back.”
The Ravens offense has a lot of playmakers, but Brown is one of the most important because he can stretch the field and open up the defense.
