Antonio Brown already knows who he wants as his next quarterback in the NFL.

The free-agent wide receiver, who was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Jan. 2, was recently asked which signal-caller he wants to play with next.

"Lamar Jackson. Action Jackson," Brown told the "I AM ATHLETE" podcast. "Let's give Lamar Jackson his flowers."

Brown added, "Lamar Jackson is a great quarterback. Not only him throwing the ball - the dynamic of him playing, the excitement."

The Baltimore Ravens signal-caller seemed to appreciate Brown's comments.

The Buccaneers parted ways with Brown after he ran off the field and left their Week 17 game against the New York Jets midway through the third quarter. The 33-year-old finished the 2021 season with 42 catches for 545 yards and four touchdowns in just seven appearances.

Jackson struggled this season, tossing only 16 touchdowns against 13 interceptions in 12 games. The former NFL MVP missed Baltimore's final four games of the campaign due to an ankle injury.

The 25-year-old endorsed Brown as a possible addition to the Ravens in 2020 after the two worked out together in the offseason. Brown's cousin Marquise Brown already plays for Baltimore and is also a wide receiver.

The Ravens added to their receiving corps during the 2021 offseason, signing veteran Sammy Watkins to a one-year deal. Baltimore also drafted two pass-catchers, including first-round selection Rashod Bateman.
