Remembering these recent NFL splits

This duo had yet to have the same impact as the previously mentioned tandems. However, off the field, they quickly formed a family bond. The two grew up within 40 miles of each other in South Florida, and Jackson has been a mentor to Brown since the latter’s rookie season. Brown was ultimately Jackson’s Baltimore’s most targeted wide receiver in 2021, racking up 91 receptions for 1,008 yards in a career year. However, in the offseason, Brown requested a trade and received a lateral promotion from the No. 2 receiver in the Ravens’ offense behind tight end Mark Andrews to become Arizona’s No. 2 receiver.

Presumably, Brown’s speed will result in him being used as more of a deep threat than he was in Baltimore, but his departure leaves the Ravens’ offense in disarray. After the Hollywood trade was announced, Jackson spent the night tweeting through his feelings, Brown’s departure leaves a void in the Ravens’ offense that they will try to fill with David Duvernay and Rashod Bateman, who will compete to be Jackson’s new No. 1, but until then, they have two rookie tight ends vying for a center. role in Ravens offense. Three tight ends are reportedly Greg Roman’s alternative to a true No. 1 receiver. Hollywood is the Lamar that got away.
