Recent Super Bowl winner Antonio Brown is currently one of the best free-agent wide receivers left on the market, and he's in talks with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers regarding a return. However, no deal hs been struck yet, opening the door for another team to swoop in.

Russell Wilson sees an opportunity, and is lobbying the Seattle Seahawks to pursue a move.

Antonio Brown Seahawks Rumors

Wilson hasn't been shy about speaking up on moves the team needs to make this offseason, and this is another case of the star QB trying to spur his team into action. While Brown may be interested in a return to the Bucs, his relationship with Wilson could play a factor in stealing him from Tampa.

Brown turned in a solid year with the Buccaneers, grabbing 45 catches for 483 yards and 4 TDs in eight games. He played a factor in the team's Super Bowl run as well, hauling in 2 touchdowns (including one in Super Bowl LV) during the postseason.

With just D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett as legit WR threats, Seattle needs another wideout to put around Wilson. The Seahawks can offer Brown a larger role than Tampa, and that should be intriguing to the 11-year vet, especially after securing a ring.
