The signings of Lamar Jackson and Odell Beckham Jr., along with the selection of Zay Flowers with the 22nd overall pick in Round 1 of the 2023 NFL Draft, have propelled the Baltimore Ravens to the top of the news cycle during the previous few weeks and days.
DeAndre Hopkins of the Arizona Cardinals is still a viable target for them, and according to Antonio Brown’s tweet, they might also be getting a former All-Pro wide receiver for the upcoming season.
Although Antonio Brown’s claim hasn’t been confirmed or denied by the Baltimore Ravens, it seems unlikely.
Since the 2021 season, Antonio Brown hasn’t participated in league play.
Since leaving the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New York Jets game in the middle of the first quarter and rushing to the locker room, Antonio Brown hasn’t set foot on an NFL football field. He removed his helmet, jersey, and shoulder pads.
Soon after, the Buccaneers terminated his contract.
Between 2013 and 2018, he had six seasons in a row with more than 1,000 yards.
With the Steelers, the former standout quarterback of Central Michigan twice led the NFL in receiving yards.
Although he was traded from Pittsburgh to the Raiders, he never participated in a regular-season game for them.
Antonio Brown Stats
For 12 seasons, Antonio Brown split his time between the Steelers, Buccaneers, and Patriots. Along with 187 punt returns for 1,761 yards, he had 928 catches for 12,291 yards and 88 touchdowns.
He had seven Pro Bowl selections and one championship.
Is A.J Brown And Antonio Brown Related?
Antonio Brown and A.J. Brown are not related to one another. The only things they have in common are their positions on the field and their last names.
They are not from the same hometown, attended different high schools and colleges, and have never faced off in an NFL game.
A.J. Brown, 25, is from Starkville, Mississippi, and was selected by the Titans in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft out of Ole Miss.
Antonio Brown, 34, grew raised in Miami and played at Central Michigan before the Steelers selected him in the sixth round in 2010.
A.J. has no relatives who play in the NFL, despite sharing a last name with numerous people in the game.
He is close with a lot of the players, including wide receivers Elijah Moore of the Jets and D.K. Metcalf of the Seahawks, two teammates he shared the field with in college.
However, Antonio Brown is not the only wide receiver in the NFL; he is related to both current Cardinals wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown and former NFL wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins.
When “Hollywood” was on the roster, Antonio had long toyed with the idea of joining the Ravens, but that never materialized. Now that Marquise has joined Arizona, Antonio is without a job.
