Last week the NFL issued Antonio Brown an eight game suspension for multiple violations of the NFL’s personal conduct policy. Ironically, this came just a couple weeks after Brown had suggested via social media that he was officially retiring from the game.
Regardless, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll reportedly acknowledged that the team does have interest in Antonio Brown. Carroll said that general manager John Schneider has been closely monitoring the free agent wide receiver’s “complex” situation.

Carroll shared even more about the team’s interest in another suspended wide receiver, saying the Seahawks are “very open” to a reunion with Josh Gordon.
Seahawks beat writer, Gregg Bell believes Josh Gordon is the the more likely and realistic option for Seattle, given the on-going court case that Antonio Brown is currently involved in.
