Wide receiver Hollywood Brown held a press conference in Arizona on Friday to discuss Thursday’s trade that sent him from the Ravens to the Cardinals.

Brown said on Thursday night that he had requested a trade out of Baltimore because the Ravens’ “system just wasn’t for me personally.” On Friday, Brown was asked if he had considered the Cardinals as a preferred destination when he made that request and he said it was something he had talked about with college teammate and Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray.

“I always wanted it to be here. Me and Kyler talked about it back in January, February and for it to actually happen is pretty crazy,” Brown said, via Tyler Drake of 98.7 Arizona Sports.

Brown reminisced about the way he and Murray “worked together on the B squad beating the starting defense at Oklahoma” on their way to becoming starters for the Sooners and first-round picks in the NFL. They will get a chance to make lightning strike twice now that they’re both playing for the Cardinals.

  1. As a Ravens fan I’ll miss him because we drafted him and he was always a cool player. Bit ultimately he is an undersized WR (weighs around 175lbs) who dropped a significant amount of passes, and never seemed able to take over an NFL game. I am shocked the Ravens were able to recoup a 1st round pick for him.

  2. Selfish wide receiver complaining about not getting the ball? Who would have e thought…

  3. Let’s see how it works out Hollywood. I think the Ravens win this trade and you are a free agent after a middle of the road season.

  4. Can’t blame him he didn’t want to have his career hitched to a running back playing QB. the ravens got a first back win win for both clubs.

  5. I mean he was getting plenty of targets. If you drop the ball stars will never get there

  6. I mean he was getting plenty of targets. If you drop the ball stats will never get there

  7. The RAVENS didn’t use him right because Lamar just runs and throws to Edwards the TE. …good for him greeting traded.

  8. For those who may not know this..

    Being in the right or wrong system has othing to do with targets…

    Why have so many posters equated him saying he was in the “wrong” system to him not getting the ball enough ???

    He got the ball plenty, but maybe not the routes he is comfortable running…etc…

    It happens

  9. In this instance of “player empowerment” I can agree with the player for once.

    I mean, would you want to be a WR spending your time busy blocking for Lamar for 60 minutes?

  10. Glad he was finally freed from that team. Now we can see what he can really do with a real QB.

  11. Murray and Brown, under achievers so far who compensate in the media. But who knows, both of them being talented, they might come up with something great.

    You mean Mark Andrews chief. Sounds like you know a hell of a lot about the Ravens!

  13. I wonder if Jackson can throw a Hail Mary, run after it, then catch it all by himself for the TD? That would be worth $50m a year and possibly the only way he’d ever earn that much.

    Brown is better off elsewhere, he has the talent to succeed in a more ‘traditional’ set up.

  14. Calling yourself Hollywood yet being a mediocre WR that was wildly underwhelming with bricks for hands is kinda not surprising
