Antonio Brown has been out of the NFL for months now, but he's still keeping in shape. Who better to train with than reigning NLF MVP Lamar Jackson?
Earlier this week, Marquise "Hollywood" Brown, Antonio's cousin and Jackson's teammate, posted a picture on Twitter showing the trio on the practice field.
Jackson is the reigning NFL MVP and perhaps the best quarterback in the league. Brown, for all his antics and misdemeanors, remains arguably the best wide receiver in the NFL as well.
Additional reports gave fans a bit of a glimpse into how the workout looked. The MVP throws an incredible 50-yard pass to Brown, and the latter does a pretty good job of catching it with precision.
They sure look like a match made in football heaven. A tweet captioned the workout video, "Lamar & AB gettin' that WORK today @Lj_era8 @AB84."
The video has also sparked speculations that Brown could join the Baltimore Ravens – Jackson's team – once he comes back to play in the NFL. The combination of Jackson and Brown on the same team has all the potential of being an unstoppable one, but some hurdles still prevent this from happening.
A judge passed an arrest warrant for him earlier this year concerning felony burglary and burglary charges
For one, it's worth noting that Brown has a lot to work out before he can return to the league. The former Steelers, Raiders, and Patriots wide receiver has had a torrid 2019, to put it mildly, switching teams twice in the span of a season.
In that time, he has involved himself in fights with just about everyone. He has attacked his fellow teammates and protégés, and he's also been in vocal disagreements with former teams and the league itself.
His recent spat is with Julio Jones, a wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons. Not much has brewed on that scene, but knowing both men, this is just the beginning.
Then, there's the fact that he's currently being investigated for sexual assault allegations. The league also opened a separate investigation into him after he allegedly sent intimidating text messages to one of his accusers.
Brown himself isn't helping the situation as a judge passed an arrest warrant for him earlier this year concerning felony burglary and burglary charges.
He has, however, made his intention to return to the league known, but with all this baggage, any team looking to snap him up will have to prepare.
