Seahawks Were Doing Due Diligence On Antonio Brown Before Claiming Josh Gordon


According to Adam Schefter, the Seahawks were doing their due diligence on potentially signing free-agent WR Antonio Brown

Brown remains a free agent while despite Seahawks QB Russell Wilson pushing for the team to sign Brown, per Schefter. After claiming WR Josh Gordon this weekend, Schefter says Seattle is now out of the running for Brown for the time being. 

According to Brown’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, there are “a few teams that are very interested in signing Antonio once this process is over.” Brown is still under investigation by the NFL for allegations of rape and sexual harassment

Since being released from the Patriots and filing grievances against both Oakland and New England seeking to recoup $40 million in salary, Brown has kept a lower profile.

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 a few weeks ago 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.

We’ll have more regarding Brown as the news is available.
