Report: Seahawks remain interested in Antonio Brown with his suspension nearly over

NFL: New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

In between non-updates in the never-ending Jadeveon Clowney saga this summer was reported interest between the Seahawks and troubled wide receiver Antonio Brown. Talk of a connection between Seattle and Brown came from a number of reporters, and was furthered by Russell Wilson—who worked out with Brown during the offseason.

An eight game suspension Brown received, as well as the Seahawks’ re-signing Josh Gordon, appeared to put an end to any potential match between the player and team. However, with Brown’s suspension nearing an end, there is still potential interest. On Wednesday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Seattle is in a position to sign Brown when his suspension ends.

Schefter added the Seahawks are not alone in their apparent interest in Brown and that the team has not yet begun contract talks with the receiver, meaning the two are “not a lock.”

Shortly after Schefter’s report, Pete Carroll met with reporters for his scheduled media session. When asked about the team’s interest in Brown, Carroll confirmed as much while adding they will “see what happens.”

Carroll also added any interest in Brown is unrelated to Josh Gordon’s status, which remains up in the air.

Whether Seattle is interested in Brown or not, it’s unlikely any more information regarding his next team arises before his suspension ends after Week 8.
