2. Young hope at the wide receiver position:
Marquise Brown has a chance to be Antonio Brown without the drama, baggage or troubling antics. Pairing the rookie receiver with his cousin just seems like asking for trouble. Marquise Brown is a player who you never hear anything negative about. He’s become tight with Lamar Jackson and everybody in the franchise seems to be gushing about his potential. The Antonio and Marquise Brown dynamic would be something that the team would have to worry about.

For the first time in the Ravens history, they are not desperate at the wide receiver position. Marquise Brown is a potential game changer. Miles Boykin looks like a receiver that could flourish with the Ravens. Jaleel Scott is an up and coming player to keep an eye on. With Willie Snead as the veteran leader of the group, Baltimore has a good thing going. They have more hope at the wide receiver position than ever before. Letting players like Marquise Brown, Boykin, and Chris Moore develop at wide receiver makes more sense than adding a disruptive receiver a day before the first game.
The Ravens have a young offense that has been built mostly through the draft. Marquise Brown and Hayden Hurst were taken in the first round of their respective drafts. Mark Andrews is a player who is potentially entering a breakout season. Justice Hill is a rookie. Lamar Jackson is entering his first full season as the quarterback. The Ravens have all the building blocks in place. If Jackson is the franchise quarterback that the team believes he is, they don’t need a player like Antonio Brown. He would just halt the progress of the young talent around him.
