Antonio Brown could finally make his return to football this fall.
According to a report from NFL Network’s Mike Silver, both the Seahawks and the Ravens have had internal discussions about possibly signing Brown this upcoming season.

“Teams are sniffing around, “I would keep an eye on the Seattle Seahawks. Antonio Brown has been doing some offseason workouts with their backup quarterback Geno Smith. They are absolutely interested in having him potentially as a late-season addition … assuming there is a suspension. And the Baltimore Ravens — his cousin Marquise Brown is on that team — they have sniffed around in the past. They are mulling that over too. So internal discussions in both of those organizations. Keep an eye on Seattle and Baltimore.”
Last month NFL insider John Clayton reported that Seahawks QB Russell Wilson had lobbied the team to sign Brown.

“It’s pretty clear the Seahawks want to run the ball even more this year. They have loaded up at tight end and tried to stay big along the offensive line. But it’s not out of the question for the Seahawks to add another wide receiver. According to sources, Wilson would love to add Antonio Brown. Brown is also close with backup QB Geno Smith, whose one-year contract with the Seahawks was finalized Wednesday.
Before Brown plays a game in the NFL he will probably face a lengthy suspension for pleading no contest to burglary and battery after he was involved in a physical altercation with a moving truck driver earlier this year. The league is also continuing to investigate a sexual assault incident involving Brown that will likely lead to further discipline.
