Geno Smith implied that the team could sign free agent wideout Antonio Brown via Twitter on Tuesday.
The Seattle Seahawks backup quarterback retweeted Brown’s video with the caption “coming soon” and suggesting that Seattle could be making a play for the controversial wide receiver.
Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson has stated this offseason that he wants Brown on the team, but his messy exits from Pittsburgh, Oakland, and New England as well as his off-the-field behavior present a bunch of risks.
Last week, Brown sent an Instagram “demand” that Roger Goodell rule on the league’s investigation into him:
“@nfl I have complied with each and every ask of your investigations throughout the past 11 months. You have had access to all of my phones, you know what the deal is in each and every situation that the media has distorted. I have been seeing the therapist you asked me to, I have worked on all aspects of my life this past year and have become a better man because of it.
The fact that you refuse to provide a deadline and the reason for the fact you won’t resolve your investigations is completely unacceptable. I demand you provide me clarity on this situation immediately if you really care about my wellbeing. My legal team continues to ask and you provide no answers. How is it that the league can just drag it’s feet on any investigation it chooses on players and we just have to sit there in limbo? Need an update so I can talk to these teams properly, they’re waiting on you @nfl let’s get this thing moving! We’ve got history to make!! #Himmothy”
