After an 8-3 start to the 2021 NFL season, the Baltimore Ravens missed out on the playoffs after closing out the year with six straight losses. The Ravens' offense faltered down the stretch, which included finishing with fewer than 220 passing yards in four of those six games.

Baltimore will likely seek out some weapons to help franchise quarterback Lamar Jackson. One potential candidate is a certain controversial wide receiver who's more than willing to help out Jackson.

Antonio Brown Ravens

Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown spoke on a recent I AM ATHLETE podcast episode that he would like to play with Jackson.

If Brown can keep his behavior in check, Ravens fans would love to see him with Jackson. The 33-year-old wideout had 42 receptions for 545 receiving yards and four touchdowns in seven games with Tampa Bay this year.

Brown also had three 100-yard games and could an impactful option for the Ravens. He would also have the opportunity to play with his speedy cousin Marquise, who's fresh off of his first 1,000-yard campaign.

Nevertheless, there's always the off-field risk that comes with Brown. It seemed like the Buccaneers had everything under their control and were a perfect fit for him until his controversial exit in his final game in a Tampa Bay uniform.

Regardless, the Ravens will do what they think is right for the future of their organization. If they think bringing on Brown is worth the risks, they'll give Jackson the superstar wideout he's been looking for.

If they don't think he's worth it, there's no doubt that some team will — controversy and all.
