Lamar Jackson Would Be 'Happy' If Ravens Signed Antonio Brown

Marquise Brown, Lamar Jackson and Antonio Brown take a picture after working out.

Video of Lamar Jackson throwing to star free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown went viral on April 1 and fans have been clamoring about it ever since.

On Tuesday, it was one of the first questions Jackson got during a video conference call with reporters.

"I'd be happy if we signed him," Jackson said. "He's a great player, he shows it each and every year. … But it's not my decision."

Brown played in just one game last season and the seven-time Pro Bowler hasn't suited up since September. The Steelers traded him to the Oakland Raiders, who released him after a tumultuous training camp. The New England Patriots signed Brown, then cut him after one game. Brown is being investigated by the NFL under its personal conduct policy.

Brown is cousins with Ravens wide receiver Marquise "Hollywood" Brown, who made the introduction.

Jackson said he and Brown didn't exchange any tips or have a long interaction.

"We were just working out, we didn't really sit down and talk and stuff like that," Jackson said. "Just grinding. It was my first time meeting him in person."

Ravens General Manager Eric DeCosta was asked about the possibility of signing Brown during a pre-draft press conference and said those are "in-house things."

In a recent interview on the NFL Network, Marquise Brown said Antonio Brown is still in "great shape" and predicted his cousin could land with Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

"Everybody knows what he brings to the table," Marquise Brown said. "He's a great player. If he gets a shot to get back in the NFL, it would be great to have him on the team."
