Recently troubled wide receiver Antonio Brown is serving a suspension that will end after Week 8, at which time NFL teams will be able to sign him to their rosters.
Despite his recent personal issues and behavioral problems, Brown was once an elite receiver, so it’s no surprise that many teams are reporting interest in signing him once he becomes available.
According to league sources, the Seattle Seahawks have shown the most interest and are going to make a serious push to sign him.
Brown was under investigation for a slew of off-field incidents and was given an eight-game suspension this summer for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. The suspension could have been extended if further violations were found related to ongoing lawsuits that Brown is involved in, but that has not been the case.
Both quarterbacks on Seattle’s roster, starter Russell Wilson and backup Geno Smith, are friends with Brown and worked out with him during the offseason.
A certified Super Bowl contender, the currently undefeated Seahawks already have an explosive offensive with two excellent receivers in DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.
Adding a fresh Antonio Brown to the mix could make them practically unstoppable come playoff time.
