“Would Love to Play with [Antonio Brown]-” Seattle Seahawks Cornerback Further Ignites the Speculation

Published 07/03/2020, 7:00 PM EDT


Free-agent Antonio Brown is hot property at the moment. The in-demand, wide receiver is to almost every top NFL franchise at the moment. The former Pittsburgh Steelers WR was busy in the offseason. Antonio Brown trained with Tom Brady earlier this year. This led to rumors linking the highly-rated WR to Tampa Bay Buccaneers which is Brady’s new franchise. But Brown also trained with Seattle Seahawks’ Russell Wilson earlier this week. That sparked rumors of a potential Antonio Brown – Russell Wilson partnership at Seattle ahead of the upcoming NFL 2020 season. Additionally, Seattle Seahawks Cornerback – Shaquill Griffin – also revealed his desire to work alongside AB with a short tweet.

On Thursday, Shaquill Griffin tweeted “Would Love To Work With @AB84!”. Was that a sign of a potential Antonio Brown signing? Surely, it is no coincidence that the seven-time NFL Pro Bowl player trained with Wilson earlier this week. Seattle can definitely afford Brown but is he worth the risk? off-field struggles aside, there is no doubt that the now 31-year old will definitely strengthen Seattle’s offense ahead of the start of the 2020 season. Pete Caroll already has the likes of DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, Philipp Dorsett, and David Moore at his disposal. Do they really need Antonio Brown to provide competition for a starting spot or will he just create more chaos within the team dressing room if he does arrive?

Could we see the “DangeRUSS Wilson” link up with AB?

NFL Network’s Bucky Bruce claims Antonio Brown would be a perfect fit at Seattle this season. Bruce said “In Seattle, Brown’s energy and competitiveness could fit well on a team built on individual and collective competitiveness. The ‘Hawks sprinkle in competitive periods throughout practice, including one-on-one and seven-on-seven periods, with the starters competing against each other. With Brown known to embrace on-field challenges while diligently prepping for the next game, the four-time All-Pro is built to play for a team and coach who embody the “Always Compete” mantra.” The former Central Michigan man is also linked to Houston Texans, NY Giants, and a few other NFL teams. We’ll have to wait and watch where AB ends up. However, expect some drama when Brown finally makes his long-awaited return to the big leagues.
