Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson appeared to endorse the idea of former Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown joining him in Baltimore.
Where will Antonio Brown land next?
If you’re buying the social media talk of Brown and Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, it’s Baltimore.
Brown appeared on the “I Am An Athlete” show and was asked about who he wants to play with next. His answer was simple: Action Jackson.
“Lamar Jackson is flawless,” Brown said.
Jackson saw a clip of the interview on Twitter and quote tweeted it with a devil emoji.
Lamar Jackson hints at Antonio Brown coming to the Ravens
Jackson could just be appreciating the love from Brown. Or he could be signaling his approval of Brown paying for the Ravens.
Things are obviously complicated when it comes to Brown. The Bucs took a chance on him in 2020 and it paid off with a Super Bowl victory. However, as always seems to happen with the enigmatic receiver, things fell apart in the most destructive of ways.
Brown left the team in the middle of a game, throwing his pads to the ground and making a spectacle of leaving the field. He was ultimately cut and claimed Tampa Bay mismanaged an ankle injury.
The Ravens finished last in the AFC North, so they should be looking to do something different in 2022. Part of their trouble was Jackson’s health. He played just 12 games while Tyler Huntley and Josh Johnson had to fill in.
Jackson could use some help in the receiving corps. Marquise Brown is a bonafide star but tight end Mark Andrews led the team in receiving in 2020. Rashod Bateman could become more of a go-to threat but Baltimore needs targets.
The question for John Harbaugh and the Ravens front office is whether or not Antonio Brown is worth the trouble at 34 years old.
