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.”
