Antonio Brown has caught passes from future Hall of Fame quarterbacks Ben Roethlisberger and Tom Brady.

The volatile free-agent wide receiver has another talented quarterback in mind to play with next.

"Lamar Jackson," Brown said in an interview on the "I Am Athlete" podcast. "Action Jackson. Let’s give Lamar Jackson his flowers."

Jackson, it appears, is on board with the idea, retweeting the video of Brown's interview and adding a purple devil emoji to his post.

Such a union would put Brown on the same field as his cousin, Ravens receiver Marquise "Hollywood" Brown.

Of course, there's the multitude of on- and off-field issues from Brown's career that the Ravens would have to consider before pursuing the seven-time Pro Bowl receiver.

The most recent transgression was his abrupt exit from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' game against the New York Jets on Jan. 2. Four days later, he was released by the Bucs.

On Sunday, Brown took delight in his former team's dramatic defeat in the divisional playoff game against the Los Angeles Rams. Brown posted an image of himself from his infamous exit against the Jets. In the image, Brown's hands are above his head, and the image was edited to make it look as if he were holding a white sign with black letters that say "Bucs eliminated." Above the image, Brown captioned the photo by saying "Ican't" and added an emoji of a face crying with laughter.
