Seahawks and Ravens eyeing troubled receiver Antonio Brown

0


If you’re talented enough, the NFL will come calling.

Antonio Brown has been proof of that in the past and it’s apparently the case again, with the NFL Network reporting on Tuesday that a pair of teams are at least considering bringing in the troubled star wide receiver.

According to Michael Silver, the Seattle Seahawks and Baltimore Ravens are both interested in Brown, who played in just one game last season.

Silver pointed out that Brown has been working out with Seattle backup quarterback Geno Smith and he added the Seahawks “are absolutely interested” in Brown.

As for the Ravens, Brown’s cousin Marquise Brown is on the roster and they have shown interest in the receiver in the past.

Brown still faces a likely suspension if there is an NFL season in 2020 and it’s not shut down by the coronavirus pandemic.

Last year, Brown was traded from the Steelers to the Raiders, but he never played for Oakland after numerous transgressions which included a foot injury resulting from cryotherapy and complaints about his helmet led to his release.

Brown then joined the Patriots and caught four passes — including a touchdown — from Tom Brady in his lone game in Week 2 with New England. But a sexual assault allegation brought his time with the Patriots to an end.

The NFL still is investigating that allegation and Brown also recently pleaded no contest to burglary and battery charges following an alleged assault of a moving truck driver in Florida. Brown pled no contest to the charges last month and received two months probation.
