Antonio Brown’s NFL return is coming back into focus, with the Seattle Seahawks still squarely in the picture.
The wide receiver is currently serving an eight-game suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct policy, but with two weeks left on his clock, the Seahawks are “positioned to make a push to sign him,” ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Wednesday. They are not the only team interested either, according to the report.
Brown has played just one game since 2018, coming last season with the Patriots — who he signed with after getting cut by the Raiders in the wake of disciplinary issues, without ever playing a game for them. But soon after debuting with the Patriots, he was cut following allegations of sexual assault.
In June, Brown also pleaded no contest to burglary and battery charges after allegedly fighting a moving truck driver in Florida.
The 32-year-old Brown worked out with Seahawks quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Geno Smith during the offseason and they have stayed in touch about him signing in Seattle, sources told ESPN.
The Seahawks already have an explosive offense with Wilson putting together an MVP-type season while throwing to dangerous targets like Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf. They are also waiting on the potential reinstatement of wide receiver Josh Gordon, who was suspended indefinitely in December for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances and substances of abuse.
