Every offseason, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson heads down to Southern California and invites his wide receivers, amongst others, for organized passing sessions to prepare for the upcoming season.
Wilson recently hosted second-year receiver DK Metcalf for a workout, before the NFLPA recommended players suspend private workouts due to COVID-19. Now, it appears the Seahawks franchise quarterback has another wideout in for a visit.
If you take a look at Antonio Brown’s latest Instagram posts, you’ll see that he’s been training on the Russell Wilson property. If it’s not obvious on first glance, these next screenshots are a dead giveaway.
In one video, Brown is stretching with resistance bands and a Seahawks helmet sits directly across from him.
Then, if you look at the logo in the middle of the field, it matches Wilson’s Nike logo, which is a combination of his initials and jersey number.
You can see the same logo in Wilson's latest video with a robot defender.
So, who exactly is throwing to Brown in the video? It's Wilson as confirmed in a post from Brown himself.
The workout between the quarterback-wide receiver duo comes as no surprise, especially considering recent rumors linking the Seahawks to the talented wide receiver.
NFL Network’s Mike Silver recently reported the Seahawks were having internal discussions about adding Brown to the roster, and why wouldn’t they do their due diligence if Wilson wants him in Seattle.
"They are absolutely interested in having him potentially as a late-season addition," Silver said.
Adding Brown would definitely solidify the Seahawks as contenders and give Seattle arguably the best trio of wide receivers in the NFL, alongside DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.
But there are still several hurdles in Brown’s way and considering the fact he is facing a potential suspension that stems from sexual assault and rape allegations, it’s a road the Seahawks may choose to avoid rather than take.
