Russell Wilson's Openness to Seahawks Signing Antonio Brown Feels Hopelessly Insane

Russell Wilson knows that Phillip Dorsett is a less than a solid No. 3 wide receiver, and he is pining for another wideout to play behind DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. His preferred choice, however, could ruin Seattle's chemistry.

Wilson is advocating for the Seahawks signing troubled wide receiver Antonio Brown, a move that could make a stable Seattle team implode from the inside.

The Seahawks could use a wide receiver, as they have a serious lack of depth behind Metcalf and Lockett, but Brown is not the way to go.

We have seen Brown, who has openly professed that he doesn't need the game, destroy three locker rooms in the span of a year, all the while getting involved in some very serious legal battles. He might still have all the speed and natural ability that made him a superstar in Pittsburgh, but Wilson has to be smart enough to know what kind of a nightmare Brown can be when not reigned in properly.

Over the last year and a half, Brown has played with Ben Roethlisberger and Tom Brady as his quarterbacks while having Mike Tomlin and Bill Belichick as his coaches (plus the short stint with Jon Gruden). If they can't get him under control, no one can, even Wilson and Pete Carroll.
