Antonio Brown is one of the faces of the Oakland Raiders and tried to make his presence felt for the franchise during the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft. During the draft, Brown made it clear that he wanted his new team to go out and draft his cousin, Oklahoma wide receiver Marquise Brown.
Obviously, that didn’t end up happening. Oakland took Alabama running back Josh Jacobs and the Baltimore Ravens ended up selecting Brown’s cousin, Marquise.
Oakland very well knew what Brown was wanting. He went ahead and took to Twitter to share his thoughts that the Raiders should take his playmaking cousin.
If the two Brown’s had been able to play together, it would have been a nightmare for opposing defenses to defend against. Both players possess top-notch speed and playmaking ability and would be tough covers for any cornerback. Very few teams have good enough corners to cover two players with the kind of skill-set that Antonio and Marquise have.
As it stands, Antonio will have to settle for watching his cousin terrorize his former team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, twice each season. Baltimore needed playmaking badly and Marquise is going to be a massive addition for their offense.
Lamar Jackson and Marquise Brown are going to be a deadly duo for a long time. Derek Carr and Antonio Brown are going to look to turn the Raiders around and get them back into playoff contention.
No matter what ends up happening, thinking about “what if” the two Brown’s had teamed up will still be interesting.
