Antonio Brown a good fit for Ravens, says cousin Hollywood Brown

The Ravens would benefit from the signing of Antonio Brown, according to his cousin Marquise “Hollywood” Brown.

The older Brown, 32, was released by the Patriots in September last year amid sexual assault allegations he has denied. He recently was banned for eight games due to “multiple violations of the NFL’s personal conduct policy.”

The wide receiver has been linked with a host of teams ahead of the new season, though, and worked out with both his cousin and star Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson in the offseason.

Jackson has spoken of his hope of bringing Brown to Baltimore in a move that the team’s second-year receiver — a first-round pick in 2019 — would also welcome.

“AB, he’s a guy that’s going to bring the best out of you,” Hollywood Brown told reporters.

“I feel like he would fit in this locker room. He’s a guy that’s competitive and he’s going to go out there and give 100 percent. Seeing stuff like that is going to make other guys want to do the same.”

Antonio Brown, who had a controversial stint with the Raiders last year — he was cut before playing a game for them — is a seven-time Pro Bowler, with all of those selections coming while he was a member of the Steelers.

His 23-year-old cousin scored seven receiving touchdowns for the Ravens as a rookie in 2019. Baltimore lost in the divisional round of the AFC playoffs to the Titans.
