Seahawks reportedly considering signing Antonio Brown
According to ESPN’s Adam Shekre, the Seahawks are “positioned to push” to sign Brown after the eight-week suspension expires. Brown was suspended for multiple violations of the NFL’s personal conduct policy and is currently under investigation after an artist who was hired to work at his home in 2017 and was accused of sexual harassment Imposed. His former trainer is also being investigated for alleged sexual assault.
Brown pleaded no contest in the summer to felony, misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor criminal mischief after being caught in a dispute with a moving truck company outside his Florida home in January.
The 32-year-old played a solo game last season for the New England Patriots – who only signed him after failing to kick him out of training camp with the Raiders after multiple issues – but amid allegations of sexual harassment He was released.
Despite all of that, Wilson thinks he will be a good fit in Seattle.
“I think the reality about Antonio is that he’s clearly one of the best players to ever play this game,” Wilson said, via ESPN. “I think he’s always been a special player [on] field. The reality is with Antonio, he had some difficult moments in his life, especially late. I think he has gone through a lot of things that he wishes he could take back and do, and just don’t say that, whatever. But I think he is a special player, definitely.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen to him or not. I don’t know how serious it makes us feel. But I know that obviously he can play some football. I think that’s the thing. I have developed a personal relationship with him, and not everyone is perfect. And I think that’s the reality, none of us are. So it is expected that he will play football again. “
As past allegations against him upset?
“I think he’s clearly making some mistakes along the way,” Wilson said, via ESPN. He said, “There is a process for this and he has to deal with it and go through it. I pray sincerely for anyone, whatever happens. He is just me, this is my nature. I never want to do anything bad on someone. “
