Before they claimed Josh Gordon, the Seattle Seahawks were showing interest in another former New England Patriots wide receiver.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Seahawks were doing their “due diligence” on Antonio Brown prior to claiming Gordon.

Even Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was pushing hard for the Seahawks to make a move for Brown:

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 fewer option.

Schefter also notes that despite signing Gordon, the Seahawks may revisit signing Brown later in the season.
