Schefter adds that Seahawks quarterbacks, Russell Wilson and Geno Smith, are friends with Brown and worked out with him during the offseason. Beyond that, they have reportedly remained in touch with Brown about the idea of him joining them in Seattle.

Seattle is reportedly intrigued by the idea of pairing Brown with Wilson.

As of now, the Seahawks and Brown have not opened contract talks and there are other teams also are interested in signing him.

Brown is serving his eight-game suspension. 

Brown, 31, is a former sixth-round pick of the Steelers back in 2010. He was in the third year of his five-year, $72.71 million contract when the Steelers traded him to the Raiders back in March. 

The Raiders later signed Brown to a new contract worth $50.125 million and includes $30.125 million guaranteed. However, Oakland made the decision to release Brown before the start of the season and he later signed a one-year deal worth up to $15 million with the Patriots.

Brown lasted just 11 days in New England.  

In 2019, Brown appeared in one game for the Patriots and caught four passes for 56 yards receiving and one touchdown.
