Cardinals’ Bidwill flies former Ravens WR Marquise Brown to Arizona
Hollywood is officially in Arizona.
Less than an hour after the trade was announced Thursday that the Arizona Cardinals were flipping their No. 23 pick in the NFL Draft to the Baltimore Ravens for wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown, the team posted a picture of owner Michael Bidwill having the private jet waiting for the newest member of the team.
In the photo posted on Twitter, Brown and Bidwill were in front of the jet with the tweet reading “Jet Life.”
Along with Hollywood, the wide receiver is also referred to as “jet” by his close friends in Florida.
Brown is also pictured inside the jet with shoes sporting the Cardinals’ red and white color scheme, which we aren’t sure was intentional or not, and another with him on his phone.
NFL Network insider James Palmer said the trade between the Cardinals and Ravens had been agreed upon and kept quiet, with Bidwill picking up Brown and his girlfriend in the afternoon.
He made his first appearance as a Cardinal on stage during the team’s draft party right after the trade happened, Palmer added.

Brown comes to the Cardinals after a 1,008-yard, six-touchdown season in 2021 with the Ravens.
Over Brown’s three seasons with the club since being picked 25th overall in the 2019 NFL Draft, the 24-year-old has played in 46 games and recorded 2,361 yards and 21 touchdowns.
The acquisition of Brown creates a dynamic duo with him and DeAndre Hopkins.
