The plot thickens?

Amidst the typically quiet part of the calendar year, the NFL somehow always manages to be a part of the news cycle. This has miraculously held true through 2020, an election year wrapped up in a global pandemic, that has featured some of the most memorable events and situations of our lifetimes, for both good and bad reasons.

While the idea that there is “no offseason” seems like it was crafted in an NFL Network marketing meeting that’s at times trying too hard to sell us on a sport we already follow year round, it proves itself to be valid over and over again. If you’re a Ravens fan, you’ve seen your team dominate offseason news cycles before in both a positive and a negative way, and depending on your perspective, they may be about to do so again one way or the other.

That’s in relation to a report that surfaced on Wednesday regarding Baltimore, Seattle, and a controversial player that both teams have been linked to over the course of the last several months. That player, of course, is WR Antonio Brown.

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and all the potential smoke that’s been connecting Brown with his once bitter division rival in the Ravens may now be heating up into something more tangible. Those connections include his cousin Marquise playing for the team, him working out with both his cousin and Lamar Jackson in Florida, and Brown’s fairly openly-stated desire to get back to playing that have included hints that he’d like that to happen in Charm City.

It isn’t just on his end though. Both and Hollywood and Jackson have pretty much openly espoused the idea of bringing in the Uber talented but troubled player, doing so via social and traditional media.

This is certainly no guarantee of anything and it’s of course worth noting that another team is in the mix as well, but for right now the latest development in the saga at the very least confirms that the Ravens brass has discussed bringing Brown into the building. Until something concrete happens we can’t quite give our take on the full breadth of something like this, but until then, we can always discuss our thoughts on why we think this should or shouldn’t happen.

What about you? Are you for or Brown suiting up the purple and black?
