Antonio Brown Takes Another Step Toward Ravens?

Todd_Karpovich

Antonio Brown received two years probation after pleading no contest to various charges related to an incident with a moving truck driver outside his Florida home in January.

Brown will also have to undergo a psychological evaluation and follow-up treatment, attend an anger management course, perform 100 hours of community service and follow a stay-away order from the truck driver and the moving company owner, according to the deal with Broward County prosecutors.

The resolution to the case could put the mercurial wide receiver on the path back to the NFL, perhaps in Baltimore where he's developed a connection this offseason. 

Brown's attorney released a statement announcing the court's decision and Brown's intention to resume his career. 

"With this matter now resolved and behind him, Mr. Brown looks forward to continuing his cooperation with the NFL and resuming his phenomenal professional career. He has achieved so much throughout his life from both a personal and professional standpoint, and will continue to do so,” Hancock wrote. 

There has been wide speculation about Brown joining the Baltimore Ravens. He added more fuel to the rumor mill by posting a photo of himself wearing a Ravens uniform on Snapchat in May.

Earlier this year, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson created a buzz when a video surfaced of him throwing passes to Brown in Florida. Jackson later insisted that he'd welcome Brown to Baltimore. 

“I’d be happy if they signed him," Jackson said. "He’s a great player. He showed it each and every year when he was with the Steelers in the past, but it’s not my decision.”

Antonio Brown, Jackson, and Marquise Brown conducted a training session in Florida that was filmed and then posted on Twitter. There is a natural connection between the players because Antonio Brown and Marquise Brown are cousins. It made perfect sense when they gathered for a workout because all three players have residences in Florida.

Baltimore general manager Eric DeCosta was asked during a pre-draft press conference whether the Ravens might be interested in Brown and he was non-committal, which has added to the intrigue.

"Those are in-house things," DeCosta said on a conference call because of gathering restrictions with the Coronavirus. "Those are my personal feelings about that situation. I don’t really feel the need to share that with you right now. As far as free-agent players, we wouldn’t talk about those guys. That doesn’t really serve any purpose. So I’m going to leave that one alone."

With all thats going on in the world today,, such as the giant steps forward for the black community, to reward this man with millions of dollars, after such blatant disregard for other peoples safety and well being.( including a small child , woman, and adult males, regardless of color). Would show how little the NFL and any team that would sign him , really thinks about the game and is only in it for the fame and greed. Sad day when that happens we will have seriously lost our sense of right and wrong?

I know the Ravens love signing felons, but they can't be this stupid!

Still a few things to work through, plus he could be suspended for however long Rodger wants (unless the new CBA) says otherwise. That could be another huge nightmare for defenses.

I would say if it works out The Ravens would be a much better offense and
tougher for KC, Titans, etc etc to stop.

I hope we(RAVENS) do sign him. Our offense would be unstoppable. As long his head is on straight, I'll take AB hands down. LET'S GO RAVENS AND DECOSTA!!!! LET'S GO RAVENS AND DECOSTA!!!! LET'S GO RAVENS AND DECOSTA!!!! LET'S GO RAVENS AND DECOSTA!!!! Oh yeah, we do have a open spot!!!!!

Until the Ravens officially say they're not interested (which they haven't), it's still on the table. AB would take the Ravens offense to another level (toxins aside).

Todd, you must have a very low opinion of intelligence level of DeCosta and Harbaugh in that they might seriously consider a locker room toxin like this guy. I thought the latest buzz related to AB was with Redskins who don't seem to want him either (read about it 4 days ago). Apologies to skins fans - I wouldn't wish this guy on any team but the Steelers and Pats. Anyway Todd, good job staying on top of this topic and regurgitating same old nonsense.
