Report: Seahawks one of two teams interested in Antonio Brown

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Antonio Brown saga is not yet over, as Brad Spielberger of PFF reports that the Seahawks and Ravens are two teams still interested in pursuing the veteran wide receiver.

Antonio Brown was suspended for the first eight weeks of 2020 before signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in late October. He appeared in eight regular season games and three of the Bucs playoff appearances, including their win over Kansas City in Super Bowl LIV. Brown had 483 yards and 4 touchdowns on 45 receptions from Week 9-17, along with 8 receptions, 81 yards, and two touchdowns in the playoffs, including one in the Super Bowl.

Of course, the questions surrounding Brown are not related to production, but rather to his significant and ongoing issues off the field, most prominently being the subject of multiple accounts of sexual assault, of which investigations remain ongoing. Rather than revisit the disturbing nature of the controversies in detail here, feel free to check out this timeline from Sporting News for a chronology.

Russell Wilson may be his biggest advocate in Seattle, and the Seahawks have been connected to him on multiple occasions over the last couple years. Needless to say, fan reaction has often been less than positive. There are plenty of talented players who are capable and willing to play football who don’t have the history of Antonio Brown, let’s hope that the front office steers clear and looks elsewhere for help at the receiver position.
