Breaking up is hard to do: Remembering these recent NFL splits

This duo hadn’t made the same impact as the tandems mentioned above yet. However, off the field, they quickly formed a familial bond. They both grew up 40 miles from one another in South Florida, and Jackson has been a mentor to Brown since the latter’s rookie campaign. Brown was finally Jackson’s Baltimore’s most targeted wide receiver in 2021, hauling in 91 catches for 1,008 yards in a career year. However, in the offseason, Brown requested a trade and took a lateral promotion from No. 2 receiver in the Ravens’ offense behind tight end Mark Andrews to become the No. 2 receiver in Arizona.

Presumably, Brown’s speed will result in him being used more as a deep threat than he was in Baltimore, but his departure leaves the Ravens’ offense in disarray. After Hollywood’s trade was announced, Jackson spent the night tweeting through his feelings, Brown’s departure leaves a void in the Ravens’ offense that they’ll attempt to fill with David Duvernay and Rashod Bateman, who’ll compete to be Jackson’s new No. 1, but until then, they have two rookie tight ends vying for a pivotal role in the Ravens offense. Three tight ends are reportedly Greg Roman’s alternative to a true No. 1 receiver. Hollywood is Lamar’s one that got away.
