A week ago, the Seahawks appeared to be the main contender for relay receiver Antonio Brown. In the end, they didn’t.
According to the league’s sources, the Seahawks conducted due diligence on Brown, completed all homework and checked all necessary boxes to assess whether Brown should be added to the roster. The Seahawks decided based on their own efforts that they were unwilling to add Brown to the team.
Brown has an ugly exit from the Steelers and Raiders. He was also suspended for eight games for multiple violations of the “Code of Personal Conduct”. According to the evidence obtained, he faces potential discipline in a civil suit for sexual assault pending trial.
Nevertheless, they have to face the fact that quarterback Russell Wilson (Russell Wilson) wants Brown to be selected. As previously speculated, the Seahawks are likely to publicly admit that they are interested in Brown, which can both appease Wilson and ensure that others will rush in and attract him.
The Pirates did just that, and they helped the Seahawks avoid potentially embarrassing moments for their quarterback.
