Report: Russell Wilson wants Seahawks to sign Antonio Brown
A lot of teams are understandably shying away from even looking into signing Antonio Brown, but that certainly isn’t stopping key players from wanting to play with him.
According to John Clayton of ESPN 710 Seattle, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson “would love” for the team to add Brown to its wide receiver corps.
No deal is likely anytime soon. Even if the Seahawks maintain legitimate interest in Brown, a move like that likely would not come until July or August, when rosters and more settled and the Seahawks know what kind of cap space they have and what needs they may have to fill.
Wilson is reportedly not the only top quarterback who’d like to play with Brown. The former Steeler’s ongoing legal issues make it unlikely that he signs anywhere soon, not to mention his growing reputation as a difficult character in the locker room.
