Antonio Brown to Seahawks Talk Up Heat. And did Le’Veon Bell forget that he played for the Steelers?


About an hour ago

Ah, the good old days for bored Steelers fans.

Back in 2019…

Rumors and headlines about former Black and Gold All-Pros Antonio Brown and Le’Veon when you can log onto the Internet and be slapped in the face with five or six different stories.

Okay, it looks like those days are back. Because on Wednesday, Bell was introduced as a member of his new team in Kansas City. And Brown may also have a new employer after the eight-game suspension ends.

Let’s start with Bell, who had his introductory Q&A with members of Casey Media.

Okay, Bell probably didn’t mean it. but …

When asked about joining the majors on Wednesday, the running back former Steelers tried their best to praise their new quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Perhaps unknowingly, he may have bothered his old teammates in Pittsburgh a bit.

“Patty Mahomes … I’ve never played with a player MVP-wise so it’s fun.” I think it’s a lot of weapons, it would be fun for me. “

Technically, Bell is right.

Steelers quarterback Ben Rothlisberger has never been an MVP. Either brown. But they have 13 Pro Bowls between them.

They were some very good weapons, weren’t they Le’V?

Perhaps Bells had become so emotional with his recent experience with the Jets in New York that he could no longer even remember his playing days at Pittburg.

Yes. Let’s go with that.

Meanwhile, the Seattle Seahawks are reportedly the team most interested in signing Brown, whose NFL suspension expires after Week 8.

This is according to ESPN’s Adam Shekre.

Brown has not played since last season’s Week 2 after being released by the New England Patriots on charges of sexual misconduct and intimidation of one of his accused.

I’m not sure why Seattle would be willing to take the chance of signing the former Steelers wide receiver who upset the team. After all, they have standout pass catchers DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.

Do they need more crime? The Hawks are leading the NFL in points per game at 33.8. But they are in total defense with 471 yards allowed per game.

What is Brown going to do? Play safety? Seattle coach Pete Carroll did not do much to defuse the discussion.

If the Seahawks don’t sign Brown, then NBC Sports Washington is speculating the Baltimore Ravens. It makes more sense. They are passing for an average of only 177 yards per game. It is the second lowest average in the NFL.

It certainly looks like that Rance defensive back Marlon Humphrey is pushing that agenda.

Meanwhile, TribLive at WEEI in Boston and Ken Laird, my former colleague at WEEI, are lobbying for Brown and Robert Kraft’s reunion in New England. The Pats are ranked 25th at 207 yards per game.

Hey, Cam Newton and Abby are tight. But, sorry, Ken. I do not see that one happening. I believe that I have believed Rance for a long time before trusting the Patriots.

That said, I believe none of the above will be liked. I am very happy in a world without Mr. Big Chest in the NFL.
