Hollywood Brown on the move: Baltimore Ravens trade top WR
According to reports, the Baltimore Ravens have traded WR Marquise Brown to the Arizona Cardinals for the 23rd overall pick. The Ravens also receive the 100th pick.
This was a draft day shocker! The biggest winner in this trade is Rashod Bateman, who will step into the #1 WR role in Baltimore assuming they don't take a WR later on in the draft or sign a free agent. Marquise Brown was consistently receiving a 20-25% target share so expect something similar for Bateman. Bateman should be drafted as a high end WR3 come draft season. Mark Andrews is solidified as a top 2 TE.
As for the Cardinals, Kyler Murray is the biggest winner, assuming he doesn't hold out for a contract. Marquise Brown will replace Christian Kirk as the #2 WR for the Cardinals. What he loses in target share, he will make for in pass volume, giving that the Cardinals will pass far more than Baltimore. Hollywood Brown should be drafted as a high-end WR3.
