Despite all the issues he got himself into in the past two years, veteran wideout Antonio Brown shouldn’t have a hard time finding a new team once his suspension is lifted in Week 8.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Brown attracted interest from multiple teams in recent weeks, with Seattle Seahawks expected to be the favorites to land the seven-time Pro Bowler.

The reason why Seahawks might have an edge compared to other teams is the player’s familiarity with quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Geno Smith. Brown is a close personal friend with both of them, while all three players worked out together on multiple occasions over the summer.

When asked about the possibility of bringing in Brown, Seattle’s head coach Pete Carroll didn’t want to get into details, although he said that the team is always looking for ways to improve.

“We’ll see what happens as we go forward, but we’re tuned into what’s happening there,” said Carroll.

Brown still hasn’t engaged in contract negotiations with Seahawks or any other team, but interested parties already contacted his representatives for exploratory talks.

Brown last played in NFL in Week 2 of the 2019 season with New England Patriots. He was released by Pats several days later and has been out of the league since.
