Trent Brown isn’t afraid to speak his mind — and thank goodness for that.

The veteran tackle made headlines last week by seemingly taking a shot at the Patriots, who allowed the Baltimore Ravens to sign Malik Cunningham off their practice squad. Brown wrote, ‘Go flourish where your talent is respected,’ in an Instagram post for Cunningham, who clearly was well-liked inside New England’s locker room.

Brown’s words weren’t misinterpreted. He made that much clear Wednesday while speaking with A to Z Sports’ Sophie Weller, who asked Brown whether he felt Cunningham should’ve gotten a chance with the Patriots.

“Absolutely,” Brown told Weller. “Everybody on the team did.”

On Cunningham joining the Ravens, Brown added: “It’s funny because I told him months ago if they ever called, if anybody, that’s the team where he should go. It was almost like I saw it coming. And that’s really good for him to actually get a real chance to play his real position.”

The undrafted rookie was a healthy scratch for his first game with the Ravens.
