Antonio Brown working out with Russell Wilson

Mike Florio examines narratives surrounding Colin Kaepernick over his last NFL season and beyond, while also looking at if there's an effort by the league to shun the former 49er as he remains unsigned.

A report in May out of Seattle indicated Russell Wilson wants the Seahawks to sign Antonio Brown.

Now, it appears the two are working out together, which should only intensify the Brown-to-Seattle talk.

The receiver posted videos on his Instagram story Wednesday, and Ben Arthur of the Seattle Post Intelligencer made the connection. Brown is running routes on Wilson’s field, with Wilson’s logo visible at midfield.

It is unclear whether Wilson is throwing the passes since the video provides only a quick, faraway glimpse at the quarterback as he takes his drop.

(Brown updated with a video that clearly shows it indeed is Wilson he was working out with. Brown added, “Who would like to see this on Sundays?”)

A recent report indicated the Seahawks have had internal discussions about Brown.

But Brown faces league discipline after pleading no contest to burglary and battery in connection with an altercation with a moving truck driver. The league continues to investigate two other incidents involving Brown for potential further discipline.

Brown has not played since Sept. 15, the only game he played for the Patriots and the only game he played last season.

The Seahawks’ receiving corps includes DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett and Philip Dorsett.
