1. WR Marquise Brown, Arizona Cardinals

After Brown had the audacity not to want to be coached by Greg Roman, he demanded a trade and ended up with his old college quarterback in Kyler Murray. After Murray got injured and Brown had to sit through two different coaching staffs in Arizona, he realized the grass isn't always greener on the other side.

Brown recorded 49.3 receiving yards per game with the Cardinals, a slight decrease from the 51.3 he amassed during his Ravens tenure, while only catches seven touchdowns in 26 outings. Even with that decline, the poor quarterbacks he put up with during Murray's absence could convince some that a breakout season is in the works.

Marquise Brown could return to the Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens would be going all-in on speed if they pair Brown with Zay Flowers at the front of their passing attack, but the success of teams like Miami and Kansas City doing the same thing in recent years could help alleviate those concerns. Brown is still very quick, and Todd Monken is going to love adding him.

Spotrac projects Brown's value at just under $15 million per season, which is quite an expensive price for a player with one 1,000-yard season (1,008 in 2021) in five years. If his value goes down a tick, the Ravens would do well to opportunistically rescue him and reunite him with his MVP quarterback in Jackson.
