Pete Carroll elaborates on potential Antonio Brown interest

On Wednesday afternoon, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll made it clear that his team is taking a look at receiver Antonio Brown, whose suspension ends in 10 days. On Wednesday evening, Carroll used even stronger language to indicate that the Seahawks will be players in the potential chase for the best free-agent player on the market.

Appearing on SiriusXM NFL Radio, here’s what Carroll said: “The thing I can tell you about it, competitively, [G.M. John Schneider is] in on everything. He knows everybody in the league, he knows what’s going on, he’s kept us involved and has made marvelous moves over the years. We’ll see how this one — you know, we’re there, we’re in it and we know what’s happening. It isn’t settled yet and we don’t know where it is going to go but we’re always on the ready to compete to get guys and so this is one of those chances and we’ll see what happens.”

The key difference from Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday night comes from the phrase “we’re there, we’re in it.” So it sounds like it’s more than simple due diligence. It’s a pursuit, a competition, an active process.

We’ll see whether others decide to be “there” and/or “in it,” too.

  1. Your team is undefeated and you are going to invite cancer into your locker room? AB is not worth the risk!

  2. Pete “The Truther” is about to find the outer limits of his caching prowess. AB will start out fine. But it will all end in tears, as the English say.

  3. Don’t do it. Get clay Matthews or O-Line depth. This is a waste of time, money, and locker room space.

  4. Russell Wilson will be able to bring this guy into the fold and get him in line. Make him feel like family. However, they already have a great wide receiver core. Unless he’s signing for seven to eight million I do not like it.

  5. He’s nuts but he is amazing on the field. Sure, let’s have a redemption cycle here with AB and see if he blows it again.

  6. I’m hoping the Seahawks win the SB the next few years. Will getting him increase the chances that happens? Would trading Metcalf to the Rams for Donald do that? Adding AB, getting Donald & losing Metcalf type scenario’s are academic exercises that are fun to contemplate. I just trust that the Seahawk front office will attempt to do what is best to be their most competitive. AB is talented, so…..

  7. Seahawks are getting greedy, just like they did with Percy Harvin.
    They have no problem completing passes, but do have a HUGE PROBLEM getting QB sacks.
    Poor investment to spend the rest of the salary cap on offense.

    What you don’t have faith in 7th rd rookie TE Stephen Sullivan’s sudden conversion to DE??? 😀

    =====

    1832 all-purpose yards in 2011
    1347 all-purpose yards in 2012… in only 9 games

    It was an absolute no-brainer.

  10. I think Pete is playing mind games, trying to get another NFC heavy like GB or TB to take this clown on
