The four-time All-Pro wideout said that he plans to play for the Ravens. Check out did Ravens sign Antonio Brown or not.
Antonio Brown : Did Ravens sign | Ravens contract
Brown began attending Central Michigan in 2007 after wide receivers coach Zach Azzanni told him he could fly to Michigan and try out for the team as a walk-on wide receiver.
Transitioning from the quarterback position in high school to wide receiver in college was not that difficult for him, and after a few weeks, Central Michigan coaches offered him a scholarship.
Brown had difficulty adjusting to the college lifestyle, and being on time for meetings and practice.
Azzanni and his wife helped him get situated and into an established routine, and he soon became like a part of their family. He made his collegiate debut against Kansas on September 1.
Did Ravens sign Antonio Brown
With how good the Ravens’ day was on Thursday, it seems it attracted a former NFL wide receiver in Antonio Brown.
The Baltimore Ravens haven’t announced anything. The league hasn’t told us that Brown is back.
In a new tweet from Brown, it has him wearing a Ravens No. 84 saying that he’s excited to return to the NFL this year with the “Ravens Flock” hashtag.
The 34-year-old Brown hasn’t played since the 2021 season, famously stripping and walking out on his Tampa Bay teammates during a game. He wore out his welcome in Pittsburgh and New England before that.
As you know, Brown has a long documented history of problematic and erratic behavior. Sometimes it’s serious allegations; other times it’s a cry for attention — and help.
Just recently, we wrote about him allegedly owing — and paying after an arrest warrant was issued — more than $30,000 in child support to his ex.
Brown had an acrimonious exit from the NFL two years after storming out of the Bucs’ penultimate game of the 2021 season, claiming that Arians and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had engaged in a cover up about injuries that he suffered.
The last couple of years of his NFL career and the years following was filled with controversies for Brown who always seemed to get himself into the headlines.
In 2020, the Florida native streamed a public row he had with ex Chelsie Kyriss which saw him throw a bag of penis-shaped sweets at her.
WR Antonio Brown has signed a 2-year, $35 million contract with the Baltimore Ravens.
As brilliant as Brown is, he’s equally divisive and his list of controversial episodes doesn’t help the fact.
From falsification of a covid-19 vaccine during the pandemic and an extremely public breakup with the Bucs, to an arrest warrant over unpaid child support and most recently – October of 2022 – a court order to pay a delivery driver $1.2 million after allegedly attacking him; it’s fair to say that Brown’s off the field issues have largely eclipsed the memory of a prolific wide out, quite frankly one of the best to ever play the game.
Between 2011-18, Brown was selected to seven Pro Bowls and was an All-Pro each year from 2014-17.
During that time Brown played with the Steelers for whom he led the NFL in receptions and receiving yards on several occasions.
