Antonio Brown is leaning hard into the idea of joining the Ravens, going so far as to post a picture of himself in a Baltimore uniform.
What would Antonio Brown look like in a Ravens jersey?
Fans in Baltimore and elsewhere don’t have to wonder because the receiver has already delivered the new look.
On Tuesday, Brown went on Twitter and dropped a convincing edit on the world.

Baltimore defensive back Marlon Humphrey took notice of the tweet.
Brown and Ravens players have been playing footsie on social media all week. Quarterback Lamar Jackson responded to a video about Brown wanting to play with him by posting a smiling devil emoji.
Brown is cousins with Ravens wideout Marquise “Hollywood” Brown. The two receivers and quarterback have worked out together during the 2020 offseason. So there is definitely familiarity there.
Defensive end Calais Campbell publicly stated his desire to bring in Brown in 2020 before he joined the Bucs.
There is a big difference between a handful of players wanting Brown around and the Baltimore front office moving forward with signing him.
It’s tough to ignore the history Brown has had with his last few teams. After an uber-successful stint with Pittsburgh, he burned bridges with his behavior and ended up with the Raiders. He never played a down for them as their tumultuous relationship led to an altercation between Brown and GM Mike Mayock. He was cut by the Patriots over allegations of sexual and personal misconduct.
Brown’s time with the Bucs proved exactly why teams may and may not want to take a chance on a talent like him. He won a Super Bowl with Tom Brady, then had it all fall apart the next year.
The Ravens will have to make their calculations on this one.
