In recent weeks, conversations surrounding the Seahawks’ third wide receiver spot have picked up steam after Josh Gordon reportedly planned to, then did, apply for reinstatement.
However, Gordon may not be the only talented wide receiver potentially in Seattle’s plans for 2020.
According to NFL Network’s Mike Silver, the Seahawks have discussed Antonio Brown as a possible “late-season addition,” which would follow a lengthy suspension to be handed down once Brown’s legal issues reach a conclusion.

Brown is one of the most talented wide receivers to play this century but played just one game last year. Drama in Oakland surrounding his feet and helmet saw him released before playing a game for the Raiders, then much more serious issues came to light following his first and only game with the Patriots. Brown is still to face a civil lawsuit after he was accused of rape by his former trainer, Britney Taylor, in September of last year.
Earlier this month, Brown was given two years of probation and 100 hours of community service following a no contest plea in a different case, stemming from a felony burglary charge.
