There have been plenty of superstar relatives throughout the history of the NFL. The Manning brothers (plus dad Archie), Watt brothers and Bosa brothers are among the most recognizable families who have seen success in professional football.
Now, Marquise Brown, the Baltimore Ravens rookie and cousin of Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown, is hoping to cement his place in the history books as well.
Brown, nicknamed “Hollywood,” was selected 25th overall by the Ravens in the 2019 NFL draft. The wide receiver, who many considered to be too short at 5-foot-10, instantly became emotional about his selection and revealed the advice that older cousin Antonio had given to him.
Injuries are an inevitable part of the NFL. Torn ligaments and fractured bones don’t discriminate against any team, position or pay grade. Thankfully, with proper medical attention and support, players that get hurt can generally return to their previous form — if not even better.
Several notable athletes went down during the 2018 season and will be using 2019 to stage their comebacks. According to the experts at NFL Network, the top players to watch this season are Earl Thomas, Cooper Kupp and two big names on the Atlanta Falcons’ defense.
Marquise Brown’s life changed the instant he was selected 25th overall in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft.
The newest Baltimore Ravens wide receiver wasn’t about to let that moment pass him by. Brown, nicknamed “Hollywood,” was overcome with emotion while discussing his selection with NFL legend Deion Sanders.
“I’m just happy to be here,” he said as tears filled his eyes. “It means so much.”
The former Oklahoma Sooner wasn’t entirely unprepared for the intensity and excitement of the evening. His cousin, Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown, gave Hollywood a simple piece of advice before the draft: “Just enjoy this moment.”
Relationships are a serious commitment — but, so is football.
From September all the way to February, avid football fans dedicate every Sunday (and often even Thursdays and Mondays) to their sport and team of choice. That can get on the nerves of a significant other if they don’t understand or care for the game.
Why not just date someone who loves football as much as you? Well, that’s easier said than done, especially when you realize how picky some NFL fans are.
A study done by Fanatics delves deep into the dating preferences of each team’s fanbase — and it revealed some interesting trends.
