If Antonio Brown were to end up on the Arizona Cardinals, the Los Angeles Rams still shouldn’t feel threatened yet until they figure out their situation at quarterback.
While the Los Angeles Rams remain a long shot in the Antonio Brown sweepstakes due to the fact they are already set with a trio of receivers led by Brandin Cooks, this doesn’t necessarily mean the speedy wideout still won’t join the NFC West.
Since meeting with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and coming to the conclusion that a trade seems best to help both parties, Brown has been linked to numerous teams who would love to give the wideout a chance in 2019, despite the recent drama.
As frustrating as it has been at times to keep Brown in check, it’s tough not to express interest in someone who caught 15 touchdown passes during the 2018 season, and still has plenty of great football left in him.
At first, the rumors surrounding Brown possibly joining the NFC West seemed to have the wideout joining the San Francisco 49ers to provide Jimmy Garoppolo with a reliable No. 1 target to work with.
But all of a sudden, it appears the Arizona Cardinals are trying to get in on the action as well, at least according to one report coming out of the NFL Combine.
From Brown’s perspective, the Cardinals may not seem like the most exciting destination since the team is trying to figure out their situation at quarterback, and whether Josh Rosen deserves another chance in 2019, or the offense would be better off without Kyler Murray.
Both quarterbacks obviously have a ton of potential when it comes to developing into a top quarterback in the league, but also this situation alone is why Los Angeles shouldn’t feel threatened over the possibility of Brown joining the division.
A dynamic player like Brown can only do so much on his own without a proper quarterback he can rely on, and until the Cardinals figure out who they want to roll with on offense, the Rams simply shouldn’t worry one bit.
After looking at all of the obstacles this team has overcome in the last two years to finish on top of the NFC West, why would Los Angeles waste their energy about the threat of Brown when Arizona as a team doesn’t even know who their quarterback in 2019 will be?
