Before they claimed wide receiver Josh Gordon on waivers Friday, the Seattle Seahawks had been doing their due diligence on free-agent receiver Antonio Brown, league sources told ESPN.

Even star quarterback Russell Wilson was pushing the Seahawks to sign Brown before they claimed Gordon, according to sources.

But now that the Seahawks have added another talented receiver in Gordon, his former Patriots teammate Brown will have to continue looking for work, with one more option off the table.

Brown’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said there are “a few teams that are very interested in signing Antonio once this process is over.”

Josh Gordon isn’t exactly Antonio Brown, but Wilson he is an elite troubled receiver.  That’s not a bad consolation prize for the Seahawks quarterback.
