Pete Carroll has confirmed interest in both Antonio Brown and Josh Gordon for the 2020 season. If the Seahawks are going to get weird, they might as well get real weird and add a couple of guys who have direct lines to commish Roger Goodell’s office. Brown’s already facing an eight-game suspension and Gordon has applied for reinstatement after an indefinite suspension for violating the league’s performance-enhancing substances and substances of abuse policy.
But Pete says the Seahawks are still interested and willing to work with the players and the league.
“What I’d say to you is what we always say because it’s what we always do and who we are,” Carroll said when asked about the Seahawks’ rumored interest in Brown. “John is competing at every turn. There’s never been a process, unless we just missed it, that we weren’t involved with to understand what the chances were of helping our club. He’s all over it. He understands what’s going on right now, as much as you can. It’s a very complex situation. We just need to see where it fits somewhere down the road. That’s all I got for you.”
Pete’s starting lineup includes Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, but he seems hellbent on adding a piece at that position as the team appears poised to make a Super Bowl push with the addition of Jamal Adams from the Jets.
It was no secret during the offseason that Russell Wilson and Antonio Brown held workouts together and there seemed to be a multiple admiration society thing going on between the two. “Who would like to see this on Sundays 🤔 ? that was fun !!!!!!!!!!,” Brown wrote after an early July workout.
