Eric DeCosta Explains Draft Trade of Marquis Hollywood Brown

The Arizona Cardinals are trying to improve their receiving corps by selecting a receiver in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. They had a strong feeling that Brown would be available to be selected. Brown‚ who is a former college teammate of Kyler Murray‚ is a dynamic talent who can help improve Arizona's wide receiver position. Brown has 2‚361 yards and 21 touchdowns in 46 games‚ and is coming off a career-high season. Arizona has only had one 1‚000-yard wide receiver since 2017.

After receiving a call from Cardinals general manager John Harbaugh this week‚ Baltimore Ravens GM Eric DeCosta explained that his team had decided to trade No. 1 wide receiver Marquise Hollywood Brown to the Cardinals. We agreed on the deal this week‚ DeCosta said. We were excited to add another dynamic weapon to our offense. In addition to the first-round pick‚ the Cardinals received wide receiver Marquise Hollywood Brown from the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for a fifth-year option on Brown's rookie contract. Had the Cardinals taken Brown in the first round‚ he would have been in Baltimore until 2023. Brown had a 4.59-second 40 time at the combine‚ but his injury history was questionable. The rookie missed seven games in 2021 after sustaining a right knee injury. While the Cardinals landed Marquise Hollywood Brown‚ they also traded center Bradley Bozeman to the New York Jets. After being chosen with the No. 25 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft‚ Marquise Hollywood Brown reacted aggressively to his new team's move. He re-tweeted an expletive-laced fan's tweet that expressed disappointment over the trade of the star wide receiver. The trade gave the Arizona Cardinals the 23rd overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft and chose Iowa center Tyler Linderbaum as Brown's replacement. Baltimore Ravens GM Eric DeCosta has explained the draft trade of Marquise Hollywood Brown. He revealed that Brown requested to be traded after the 2021 season. The deal reportedly cost the Ravens a pick in the third round and a fourth-round pick in the fourth round. The Ravens made a decision to move on from Brown‚ but it was not a bad deal overall for the team. The Cardinals will gain a speedy‚ big-play threat. Brown played with Kyler Murray at Oklahoma and improved his catch totals and yardage each season. In 2021‚ he caught 91 passes for 1‚008 yards and six touchdowns. Brown joins a talented group of wide receivers in Arizona‚ including James Conner and A.J. Green. In addition to Brown‚ Arizona also added running back James Conner.

However‚ the trade was a complicated one. The Ravens traded away their third-round pick to take Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton and Iowa center Tyler Linderbaum. Baltimore then used its fourth-round pick to select Iowa center Tyler Linderbaum. The Cardinals wanted Brown for a few reasons. They have a running back in Lamar Murray‚ and they wanted to extend his contract before the end of his third season. However‚ the Brown trade came with a price tag: they got the 23rd overall pick in the draft. The Browns' pick was worth only $2.2 million. The Baltimore Ravens also got the 27th overall pick in the trade with the Bills. However‚ they passed on Brown in exchange for another pick from the Bills. It's worth mentioning that the Ravens have only five players remaining from the 2018 draft class. The Ravens have released wide receiver Miles Boykin earlier this month. Brown had become Lamar Jackson's closest friend in the team and often hung out in the offseason. DeCosta explained the situation to Jackson before the trade. The Ravens are now set to win the $ 13.4 million option on Brown's rookie contract at the end of the season.

The Baltimore Ravens traded wide receiver Marquise Hollywood Brown to the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday‚ giving up the No. 100 pick to the Cardinals. They then traded back that pick and chose Iowa center Tyler Linderbaum with the No. 23 pick. While Marquise Brown's stock rose each year‚ he needed some improvement in his consistency catching the football. The trade gives the Cardinals the 23rd pick in the NFL Draft and a speedy wide receiver with explosiveness. Brown played with Murray at the University of Oklahoma‚ and the two improved their catch and yardage totals every season. In 2021‚ Brown had a 91-100-six-to-four touchdowns line on 146 targets. While Murray was taken in the first round by the Ravens‚ Brown's speed and athleticism make him a great fit for the Cardinals.

The Cardinals were clearly interested in Brown and traded the first round pick to Baltimore in exchange for the No. 23 pick. The trade did not officially close until hours before the draft. After the trade‚ the Ravens will be able to pick up Brown's fifth-year option. Besides the Brown's former college teammate‚ the Rams also traded for his former college teammate‚ Kyler Murray‚ in this draft. Brown has the potential to become the No. 3 wide receiver in fantasy football. He is a mid-to-high WR3 in 2022 drafts and is worth a mid-to-high WR3.

Kyler Murray's friendship with Marquise Hollywood Brown

If you've been following the NFL draft‚ you've likely noticed Kyler Murray's newfound friend. During his rookie year in 2018‚ Murray recorded a dismal five-ten-1 record. The Cardinals made a move to address this need by trading for Brown. In exchange for a third-round pick‚ the Cards received a versatile playmaker in the form of Brown. Murray and Brown also played together for the Oklahoma Sooners in 2018. The trade is expected to result in a winning season for both sides. The Arizona Cardinals signed Marquise Brown on Monday‚ bringing back one of Murray's former college teammates. Brown‚ 23‚ will reunite with Kyler Murray after a brief time apart. Brown's friendship with Murray dates back to college‚ when both played for Oklahoma together. The move will improve the Cardinals' passing game and give Murray an edge against the competition. Brown's presence in Arizona will be a huge boon to their quarterback Kyler Murray‚ who recently expressed a desire to stay in Arizona. Marquise Hollywood Brown and Kyler Murray are not the first pair of college teammates to play together in the NFL. In fact‚ there have been a number of examples. Former Sooners Jaylen Waddle and Ja'Marr Chase are examples of the same situation. The Cardinals signed Brown in a trade with the Baltimore Ravens in 2009 and signed him with the No. 23 pick. The two players have remained friends and continue to play together. It's easy to see the similarities between the two players. Brown is a quick player and has shown steady improvement in his first three seasons in the NFL. He set career highs in 2008 receptions and 2008 yards last season‚ and he has added six touchdowns. However‚ Brown has been in the NFL just three years‚ and he recently told reporters that he plans to retire at the end of the 2021 season. While the Arizona Cardinals recently traded for Antonio Brown‚ it was no secret that the two players had a good relationship. While at Oklahoma‚ Brown played with Murray and logged 75 catches for 1‚318 yards with 10 touchdowns. After Brown's trade with the Cardinals‚ Murray tweeted to the former Oklahoma teammate. Both players replied‚ proving that the two teammates are good friends.
