Antonio Brown may no longer be a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but some NFL team is dumb enough to sign the free-agent wide receiver.
Antonio Brown does not need to be on an NFL team right now, but some dumb organization might take a flier on the talented, but incredibly toxic wide receiver.
When he quit on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the second half of Sunday’s road game vs. the New York Jets, that should have been a curtain call on his controversial pro football career. However, NFL insider Josina Anderson reported on Tuesday morning that “If Antonio Brown wants a job on another team in the NFL, he can have one.” That is simply mind-blowing, but here we freaking are.
The ultimate goal is to not find oneself on this list of possible Brown free-agency destinations.

The Seattle Seahawks were a well-run operation, but that is no longer the case
This is more of an indictment on the current state of the Seattle Seahawks more than anything. When was the last time they were this utterly atrocious? With late owner Paul Allen passing away, his sister Jody has taken over and the franchise has been in a state of flux. This has allowed head coach Pete Carroll to run rampant and quarterback Russell Wilson to be always looking for a trade.
Under Carroll, Seattle had built up a reputation as a football culture that could handle eccentric personalities. The Seahawks are geographically isolated from the rest of the league and it is all about football in Seattle. This organization tends to do things differently from a personnel standpoint, so it would not be shocking to see the Seahawks pursue a player it already courted.
If the organization wants to pander to Wilson and get him a former Pro Bowl playmaker to keep him in Seattle for the final third of his career, this would not be surprising. Frankly, until ownership is settled and the Seahawks clearly decide to go in a different direction, they will be a candidate to land players like Brown. They are close to becoming the NFC version of the old Cincinnati Bengals.
