The Ravens are thin at wide receiver, Antonio Brown is a free agent and he was seen working out with Lamar Jackson and Brown’s cousin, Marquise “Hollywood” Brown, on Wednesday.
Connect the dots? Well, not quite.
This workout, captured on social media in South Florida, is likely as close as Brown and the reigning MVP get to being NFL teammates. The Ravens, according to ESPN, are planning to upgrade their receiving core in the draft, which is loaded at the position. They stayed away from receivers during the free-agency period and they have five picks in the first three rounds of the draft. Last season, Ravens receivers caught a grand total of 115 passes in Baltimore’s run-heavy attack.
Antonio Brown is also radioactive, appearing in just one game last year for the Patriots before he was cut following allegations of sexual assault. Before that, following a trade from the Steelers to the Raiders, he was let go by Oakland due to a number of disciplinary issues. His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, let him go and Brown was also arrested for an alleged assault on a moving truck driver.
