WR - FA
The Seahawks are monitoring free agent WR Antonio Brown, per Brady Henderson of ESPN.
Brown was suspended eight games by the NFL, concluding it's investigation. He could be suspended additional games following the conclusion of his Florida cases. The Seahawks are one of the teams monitoring Brown. "What I'd say to you is what we always say because it's what we always do and who we are," Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said when asked about the team's rumored interest in Brown. "Seahawks GM John Schneider is competing at every turn. There's never been a process, unless we just missed it, that we weren't involved with to understand what the chances were of helping our club. He's all over it. He understands what's going on right now, as much as you can. It's a very complex situation. We just need to see where it fits somewhere down the road. That's all I got for you." More teams could be interested in AB now that the league knows he will miss at least eight games of the season. Brown is worth stashing in all league formats with the hopes an NFL team does give him another shot.
Free agent WR Antonio Brown will be suspended eight games without pay, per Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network. His suspension will take place regardless of whether he’s on an NFL roster.
Brown’s eight game suspension “closes the NFL personal conduct investigation into a felony case involving a truck driver, an allegation by an artist,” Pelissero added. His investigation for into allegations made by a former trainer are ongoing. AB has a hearing scheduled September 15th. The saga is finally over after an ongoing 18 month battle. Teams willing to give Brown a chance now know he will be out at half the season. If he signs before the 2020 campaign, AB will be eligible to participate in the club’s preseason activities. AB will look to latch onto a team during training camp and officially miss the first eight contests of the 2020 NFL season.
Free agent WR Antonio Brown indicated that he wants to the play in the NFL again. Two days after announcing his retirement on Twitter, he called on the NFL to conclude his investigation.
Brown announced his retirement (again) two days ago on his personal Twitter account. He indicated that he wants to play again and called on the NFL to conclude it’s personal conduct investigation. “I have compiled with each and every week ask of your investigations throughout the past 11 months,” said Brown. If Brown is reinstated, he will most likely serve anywhere from a four-to-eight game suspension. The 32-year-old has worked out with QBs Russell Wilson and Lamar Jackson this off-season. It remains to be seen if a team will take a chance on AB as teams wait the NFL to conclude its investigation on him. Brown is mainly a late-round flyer in upcoming fantasy drafts.
Free agent WR Antonio Brown tweeted Monday, “at this point the risk is greater than the reward thank you everyone who been part of this journey i sincerely thank you for everything! life goes on 84!”
Is this Brown’s retirement tweet, or will we hear more from AB before all is said and done? Who knows, but for those that have been selecting him in fantasy drafts this offseason, buyer beware as it seems he might be hanging it up after an illustrious NFL career with the Steelers, Patriots, and Raiders. If that’s really it for Brown, he’ll wrap up his career with 841 catches, 11,263 yards, and 75 TDs.
Brady Henderson of ESPN reports "nothing is close to happening with the Seahawks and Antonio Brown because of what has to be sorted out in his life first."
Brown did workout out with QB Russell Wilson this off-season and "would love to go to Seattle." No deal is close between the two parties as Brown still has off-the-field issues unresolved. "Brown has denied the women's accusations. The NFL opened an investigation into them that could result in a suspension, as could Brown's January arrest. Asked about potential NFL discipline, a league spokesperson told ESPN this week that "the matter remains under review," Henderson added. Many quarterbacks around the league are enamored with the idea of throwing to Brown, but until his off-the-field issues are are resolved, it is unclear if any team will take a gamble on him. The 31-year-old hauled in four receptions for 55 yards and a touchdown in one game with the Patriots in 2019.
