Free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown posted a picture on his Instagram account on Wednesday showing him working out with Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Russell Wilson. Brown is trying to work his way back into the league after countless off-field incidents. While he's likely to receive at least an eight-game suspension in 2020, it's looking more and more likely that another team will give him another shot based purely on his talent on a football field. The Seahawks were already one of the teams considering adding Brown or Josh Gordon, and Wilson working out with AB only furthers that narrative. Adding Brown to Seattle's mix would certainly be intriguing, but the controversial wideout won't have much redraft value with a lengthy suspension coming his way if he's reinstated.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not expected to sign free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown, per ESPN's Dianna Russini. The talented, but troubled receiver has been out of the league since appearing in Week 2 of the 2019 NFL season with the New England Patriots. The 31-year-old has found himself in various legal troubles recently, which has generally left teams hesitant to sign him. There is no doubt Brown can be an asset for any team when looking at it from a football perspective, but he will likely face some sort of league discipline even if he were to get signed now. Other teams like the Seattle Seahawks and Baltimore Ravens have been linked to the wideout, but there is no certainty they will pursue him.
Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) is not drawing any interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to sources Tuesday, June 30.
The Baltimore Ravens and Seattle Seahawks were mentioned as possible destinations for free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown recently. According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, however, the Ravens might not be as close to signing Brown as it appeared a few days ago. According to Anderson, Brown's name has come up in Baltimore but there have not been any "recent talks internally" per one of her sources. At this time, Anderson doesn't believe Baltimore can be considered a possible future destination for the star wideout. While the Ravens may be out on Brown's services, it does appear likely that he will be getting another chance to play in the NFL this season, although a lengthy suspension is looming if he does sign on somewhere. He's worth a stash in deep dynasty leagues at this moment.
The Baltimore Ravens and Seattle Seahawks have had internal discussions about signing free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown. Brown's off-the-field issues have piled up and ran him out of the league last year in failed stints with the Raiders and Patriots. Because of that, he's likely facing at least an eight-game suspension if he signs with a team for the 2020 season. Despite all of that, teams still have some interest in him because of his exceptional talent when on a football field. Brown has been doing offseason workouts with Seahawks backup quarterback Geno Smith, so they are the team to watch here. Brown's cousin, Marquise Brown, plays for the Ravens. Both Baltimore and Seattle could use some wideout depth, but Brown likely wouldn't be an option for either team or for fantasy owners until later in the season.

Fantasy Spin: Brown hasn't played since catching four of eight targets for 56 yards and one touchdown in Week 2 of the 2019 campaign with the New England Patriots. He has had multiple off-field situations since he was released and will need to fully reprove himself both to interested teams and fantasy managers.

Fantasy Spin: This is one step in the right direction for the embattled wideout's quest to return to the NFL. As for now, he should remain on the periphery of fantasy radars.
Free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown pleaded no contest on Friday to charges related to his felony battery charge with a moving truck driver in January. Brown will not face jail time but will serve a two-year probation and was given 100 hours of community service and a mandatory psych evaluation. However, the former Steeler's status with the NFL remains under review, and it seems unlikely that another team will give him another chance after all of his countless off-field incidents since he was last with the Raiders and Patriots in 2019.
Washington Redskins head coach Ron Rivera was asked about signing free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) during a Wednesday, June 10, Zoom call. 'If you bring in a veteran right now, you're going to stunt the growth of somebody young,' Rivera said. 'We've got some young guys at wide receiver that have shown potential over the last season and now into the offseason. We haven't really had the chance to watch them. I know who Antonio Brown is, I know he's a great player. He's an impact guy,' Rivera added. 'He's also a veteran guy, and we've got some young guys that we need to find out about. Again, that's kind of the approach, we want to see what we have.'
Updating previous reports, free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) is working out with NFL Hall of Fame CB Deion Sanders. 'My son came to town to WORK!

I know what I know and I pray u all get to see what I know to be true about ANTONIO BROWN. God bless all y'all and please have a productive peaceful day we are Growing & Going !'
Fantasy Spin: Reserve hope for seeing this comeback story working in AB's favor ... there's still so much uncertainty over his legal situation and whether an NFL team will welcome him. That said, it is encouraging to see him work with Sanders, and hopefully Prime is capable of setting Brown on the best path for resurrecting his playing career. Stay tuned.
