The Seattle Seahawks remain on the hunt for a reliable third wide receiver.
A nice payday for the seven-time Pro Bowl WR — and a chance to help Tampa Bay go for two.

This ends Russell Wilson’s two-year campaign to lobby for Brown to play in Seattle. Wilson has apparently been quite vocal in the team’s pursuit of a number of pass catchers over the years, and Brown was high on the list.

Antonio Brown returns as Tom Brady’s third receiver in Tampa. His $3.1 million guaranteed is three times the amount that the departed David Moore will receive from the Carolina Panthers.
Still, it’s a far cry from the $17 million he was earning at one point with the Pittsburgh Steelers. It’s impossible to know how seriously the Seahawks were looking into signing Brown, but indicates they will be looking to do the whole sign-the-last-free-agent-left-in-mid-June thing they do. Heaven forbid they try to take a receiver in the fourth round of this draft.
