Lamar Jackson is still hoping the Baltimore Ravens sign star wide receiver Antonio Brown.

Brown, 32, was released by the New England Patriots in September last year amid sexual assault allegations he has denied.

Jackson worked out with Brown in April, and remains hopeful the Ravens will sign the seven-time Pro Bowler.

“I was hoping we would get him. I’m still hoping – a little bit,” the Ravens quarterback told reporters on Wednesday.

“Around us, he was a great guy. You don’t really see anything going on at all. He’s a cool, down-to-earth guy and he’s passionate about the sport of football.

“When he was working, you could tell, this man, he’s going to go 24/7. And after the workout, he still went and lifted. He already – prior to the workout – he lifted.

“We go out there and go to throwing routes, after that, guys went and lifted some more. I’m like, ‘Man, this guy, there’s no quitting with him.’ That’s the type of guy we need in our locker room. And I feel like the locker room here is different from any other locker room. It’s like a brotherhood going on. It’s none of that outside noise; it’s strictly inside.

“We worry about each other; we worry about what we have going on. We want to win, and I can just tell in him that he wants to win. He wants to play ball.”

The Ravens are scheduled to begin their NFL season against the Cleveland Browns on September 13.
