Ravens GM Eric DeCosta when asked about Antonio Brown: ‘I think I’ll just leave that one alone’

Ravens GM Eric DeCosta when asked about Antonio Brown: ‘I think I’ll just leave that one alone’

The Ravens’ front office typically holds franchise secrets pretty tightly. Some of the most notable players on the roster, though, are less covert. 

Last week, Lamar Jackson and Marquise “Hollywood” Brown were seen running routes and working out with free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown in Florida. The three posed for a picture and posted videos on Instagram of a portion of the workout. 

Antonio and Marquise are cousins and were previously pictured working out together as well.

At a pre-draft conference call, Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta addressed both the situation and rumors that the team might be interested.

“Those are in-house things,” DeCosta said. “Those are my feelings, personal feelings, about that situation. I don’t really feel the need to share that with you all right now.”

Antonio Brown is under investigation from the NFL for accusations of rape and sexual assault, brought forward by his former trainer Britney Taylor in a civil suit. Brown has filed a countersuit. 

He is also facing charges of felony burglary conveyance, misdemeanor battery, and misdemeanor criminal mischief. He hasn’t played a game since Week 2 of 2019, after which he was released by the Patriots. 

The move came on the heels of his controversial trade and release from Oakland.

“And as far as free-agent players, we wouldn’t talk about those guys right now,” DeCosta continued. “It doesn’t really serve any purpose for us to talk about players that are available right now. There’s really no benefit to do that, so I think I’ll just leave that one alone.”

Ravens' Marlon Humphrey gets creative for morning workout, climbs rock hill

Ravens' Marlon Humphrey gets creative for morning workout, climbs rock hill

With the NFL season on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, the beginning of OTAs and other training sessions have been delayed. Therefore, players have had to get creative with their workouts based on their surroundings.

From truck pushing to weight-lifting sessions in mom and dad's driveway, there has been no shortage of unique workouts across the league. However, Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey may have just claimed the title of most creative.

On Monday, the star defender shared a video on Twitter of a workout he and his brothers participated in. The three looked to be focusing on cardio and strength-building, but not in the way it's typically done. Finding a large pile of gravel and rocks, they took turns running up the terrain. It's easy to feel the burn in your thighs and calves just looking at it.

Humphrey and his brothers made the exercise look rather easy, though it is certainly anything but that. Even the smallest piece of gravel on flat ground can sometimes trip someone up, and here, the cornerback is running up a hill composed entirely of it.

After former Ravens safety Eric Weddle responded to the video by letting Humphrey know just how insane the workout is, Humphrey admitted it didn't last long.

If this type of tricky surface isn't slowing Humphrey down, there isn't much that can. When the NFL season does begin, it could be a long year for opposing wide receivers who are tasked with somehow escaping his coverage.
