The Seattle Seahawks could be the perfect spot for Antonio Brown in 2020.
There are a few teams around the NFL who are known for having strong enough locker rooms to deal with big personalities or players who are considered off-field ‘risks’.
Since Pete Carroll became the team’s head coach, the Seattle Seahawks have fostered an environment where players with some character concerns can actually thrive.
From more recent examples like the claiming of Josh Gordon in 2019 to moves made in the more distant past like the trade to acquire running back Marshawn Lynch, who had off-field history of his own before arriving in Seattle.
The Seahawks are a team that is not afraid to bring players into their locker room with little risk attached because they can handle the extra attention and they have a player in Russell Wilson who can raise all boats if the move doesn’t end up working out.
Because they have a locker room that can handle it, the Seahawks could be the ideal landing spot for veteran wide receiver Antonio Brown ahead of the 2020 NFL season.
Seattle Seahawks have expressed interest in Brown
The Seahawks’ top receivers at this point in time are Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf. Together, those two receivers make up one of the best duos in the league, certainly one of the fastest and most athletic.
Adding Brown to the mix would give the Seahawks another top receiver option and a player who can get open to every level of the field.
Even with all of the craziness he was going through last offseason, Brown still wound up looking good in his brief stint with the Patriots and is undoubtedly one of the best receivers in league history.
At the age of 31, Brown has been spending the offseason training for a possible return to the league and has been working with other players, including top 2020 NFL Draft prospect Jerry Jeudy.
Brown still needs to do some work to get back into the NFL in general, but there are people out there trying to help him do just that.
There are some serious allegations and accusations out there against Brown. He has pleaded no contest to felony battery charges and was sentenced to 100 hours of community service.
Back in May, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson openly stated he would ‘love’ the idea of Brown playing in Seattle.
We will have to wait and see what the NFL ultimately decides with Brown, but there is a possibility he will be back in the NFL in 2020, which is miraculous in itself considering all that transpired less than one year ago.
