Hawks To Sign AB?
Tue Jun 23, 2020 12:47 pm
  • It's a no-lose situation for the Hawks -- a lowball 'prove-it' contract for one of the elite WR's in the league ... they would be doing AB a big favor, because the Commioner's clock that has been 'suspension hold' would have to start if AB signed.

  • It said "had," as in past tense.

    Pete and John vet out every available free agent, even knuckleheads like Brown, especially when your franchise QB publicly lobbies for him to come here.

    I want no part of AB right now. If we have a rash of WR injuries during the season? Sure, I'm all for seeing if we can get Brown to play the rest of the season.

    But now? No thanks. Especially true if Gordon gets reinstated.

  • This title feels a little misleading. There's nothing indicating that signing AB is imminent, just that we're one of two teams to reportedly have had internal discussions about him.

    I like Gordon a great deal, and as somebody who has dealt with similar issues, I am very sympathetic to his plight. That being said, AB is about a million times better, and I'd prefer to go that route if the cost difference isn't TOO crazy.

    AB would have to accept not getting a million targets a game though. This is a run-first team with potentially a lot of quality options to spread it around to in the passing game.

    I wouldn't say that. More like there should be some urgency to load up during Russ' prime, and there are a lot of question marks behind those two, plus our best two TEs are injury-risks. I don't think they'd be even considering AB if he was likely to draw a large salary, but if he comes at a reasonable cost... wow, that is one potentially ridiculous arsenal. You know, if we actually threw the ball.

    Let's talk distraction and personality.

    Anyone paying even a little attention to what Brown's done in both Pittsburgh, Oakland and in his own personal life knows that at best he's irrational and unpredictable.........and at worst a full blown unhinged disrupting narcissist.

    What makes you think he'd behave in Seattle? Do you think he's contrite and a changed man? Because that's very rare. Very few players like Brown all of a sudden do a 180 and change their spots.

    I think he'd be like Harvin. Come in, be restrained for a little while, then not be able to control himself and burn every bridge he can inside and outside the locker room. Now Harvin helped us win a SB, but by no stretch would I say he was even in the top 20 players who contributed and was vital.

    It would certainly be a risk, but I think we're one of the best-equipped franchises in the league to handle it. Even with the Steelers, he didn't really sabotage anything. When he left, the chatter increased that his teammates found him selfish. I'm sure he still is, but I'm hoping, possibly foolishly, that things have gotten bad enough where he will at least keep his mouth mostly shut. It sounds like Russ really likes him too, which doesn't hurt.

    From a financial standpoint, sure.

    From a having a person who clearly has a serious mental health or substance abuse issue in the locker room perspective? There's plenty to lose.

    People on here keep making this comparison, but I don't see it. Percy was exceptionally hurtful because we traded a 1, 3, and 7 for him, and then signed him to a new six-year $67 million deal with $25.5 million in guarantees. AB would cost nothing in draft compensation, and is unlikely to require an initial investment of more than one season.

    Also, before his one-game 2019 season, he nabbed 100+ receptions in each of his previous six seasons, with a high of 136. Harvin had 87 catches in his best season, and 71 in his next best. Harvin had 967 receiving yards in his best season (he did add 345 rushing though). AB AVERAGED 1524 receiving yards over his last six seasons, with a high of 1834. AB tallied 109.5 receiving yards per game in 2017. Harvin averaged 75.2 in his best season (85.9 if you add his rushing yards).

    I was actually very much in favor of the Harvin trade at the time, as he was only 25 in his first season here and ridiculously electric. That is one in Harvin's favor as AB turns 32 next month, but my main point with all this is that the two situations aren't very comparable. We wouldn't really be depending on AB; it's a short-term risk/reward thing.

  • He’d be much less of a distraction to the team than kaepernick would be.

    I would take a chance on him. A Pro not a Joe.

    Bet if we are going to be 27th in the league in pass vs run percentage don’t bother.

    I wish a good player would become available in a position of true need rather than WR and Safety.

  • There's too many mouths to feed if we sign AB. In a pass first offense, maybe he's happy. But in this offense he would have to be happy with games of 3 targets and 2 catches for 21 yards. Or if not Brown, either Lockett or Metcalf would have regular games like that. They seem humble enough to accept that, but not AB. Guy was jealous anytime Ben threw to Smith-Schuster.

    It'd be great if we could have 1,000 yards each for Lockett, Brown, and Metcalf...but that just doesn't happen. Ideally, you'd have your WR1-3 all happy to take a back seat at various points. But they want to get paid too, so that isn't going to happen.

  • Doesn't Brown still have TWO pending assault charges to be worked out? If I remember right he and a trainer assaulted a delivery driver, then he was accused of assaulting a maid or something in his own home.

    I can't imagine Goodell isn't going to suspend him again when this all shakes out.

    No thanks for me.

  • I actually like the fact that he won't be playing for part of the year. He can come in at the end of the year rested and tear up the tired opposing defenses on the stretch run and into the playoffs.

  • I suspect this story has more to do with the team kicking every tire and rolling over every rock, being constantly on the search for advantageous situations.

    I’m sure the FO has had more than one discussion about AB. Is his tremendous upside potential talent worth the media circus he brings with him and the undoubted personal selfishness of the addition of this talent? A lesson was learned with Harvin and AB at least brings a willingness to play unlike Harvin who played only on his terms. In the end talent or not I doubt he ever becomes a player for the Hawks, the player just brings too much baggage.

  • These news stories are kind of silly if you think about it. “Seahawks, Ravens have have had internal discussions about signing Antonio Brown.” I’m sure just about every team in the NFL has had internal discussions about this.

    “Hey, AB is still out there. Should we bring him in for a workout?”

    “No!”

    “Ok, well, at least we discussed it.”

  • In case a few have forgetter how much disruption this player has caused here is an article bringing it all together.

    https://sports.mynorthwest.com/953542/g ... nio-brown/

    To me he’s undoubtedly a great player but is he worth the likely problems he’d bring?

    From the Article in the post above.

    Antonio Brown's trans.

    • Threatening a reporter for writing a critical article about him
    • Tossing furniture out of his apartment window, nearly hitting a toddler
    • Driving over 100 MPH on a suburban highway
    • Several domestic incidents, one of which he streamed live on Instagram
    • An NSFW music video for a rap song that is just him repeating the phase “I gotta whole lotta money”
    • A doctor sued him for unpaid fees
    • An allegation of sexual misconduct, which led to Brown sending the alleged victim intimidating texts
    • The aforementioned sexual assault allegation
    • The aforementioned no contest plea to felony burglary with battery charge


    In the locker room
    • Broadcast his team’s celebration of a playoff victory despite his teammates requests to keep a low profile on social media
    • Skipped practices leading up to a Week 17 must-win game to make the playoffs in 2018, and was benched
    • Demanded a trade from Pittsburgh less than two years after signing a massive extension
    • Got frostbite on his feet after not wearing proper footwear to a cryotherapy session
    • Refused to practice after the NFL banned his helmet
    • Missed several practices in Oakland, resulting in fines
    • Reached out to social media consultants for advice on how to expedite his release
    • Confronted Raiders general manager Mike Mayock in an altercation that nearly turned physical
    • Apologized with a 20-second statement, then demanded his release the next day

    As a teammate
    • Got angry after A PRACTICE for a lack of targets in 2015
    • Pouted after his teammate DeAngelo Williams scored Pittsburgh’s first TD of the 2017 AFC Championship game
    • Threw a Gatorade cooler during a game in 2017 after a play in which he was open and didn’t get the ball
    • Got angry at an assistant coach, sulked after a Ben Roethlisberger TD run, and was angry about his involvement in the offense all in one 2018 game against the Chiefs in which he was targeted 17 times


    Kaepernick.

  • AB - Great Player. Is he worth the headache?
    CK - Sucked as a player when he left the league. Is he worth the headache?

    You are not signing CK for football reasons but only for other reasons.

    You might not sign AB for non-football reasons but you might for what he can do on the field.

    The Chargers coach spoke out about CK so I am hoping if anyone signs him that they do. I DESPISE that team since they turned traitor on Sand Diego and CK going their will diminish their paltry fan base a little more. Eff the Spanos!

    I wish a good player would become available in a position of true need rather than WR and Safety.



    From the Article in the post above.

    Antonio Brown's trans.

    • Threatening a reporter for writing a critical article about him
    • Tossing furniture out of his apartment window, nearly hitting a toddler
    • Driving over 100 MPH on a suburban highway
    • Several domestic incidents, one of which he streamed live on Instagram
    • An NSFW music video for a rap song that is just him repeating the phase “I gotta whole lotta money”
    • A doctor sued him for unpaid fees
    • An allegation of sexual misconduct, which led to Brown sending the alleged victim intimidating texts
    • The aforementioned sexual assault allegation
    • The aforementioned no contest plea to felony burglary with battery charge


    In the locker room
    • Broadcast his team’s celebration of a playoff victory despite his teammates requests to keep a low profile on social media
    • Skipped practices leading up to a Week 17 must-win game to make the playoffs in 2018, and was benched
    • Demanded a trade from Pittsburgh less than two years after signing a massive extension
    • Got frostbite on his feet after not wearing proper footwear to a cryotherapy session
    • Refused to practice after the NFL banned his helmet
    • Missed several practices in Oakland, resulting in fines
    • Reached out to social media consultants for advice on how to expedite his release
    • Confronted Raiders general manager Mike Mayock in an altercation that nearly turned physical
    • Apologized with a 20-second statement, then demanded his release the next day

    As a teammate
    • Got angry after A PRACTICE for a lack of targets in 2015
    • Pouted after his teammate DeAngelo Williams scored Pittsburgh’s first TD of the 2017 AFC Championship game
    • Threw a Gatorade cooler during a game in 2017 after a play in which he was open and didn’t get the ball
    • Got angry at an assistant coach, sulked after a Ben Roethlisberger TD run, and was angry about his involvement in the offense all in one 2018 game against the Chiefs in which he was targeted 17 times


    Kaepernick.

    Knelt down during the national anthem.



    What a world we live in when the latter is more of a distraction.



    Pig socks, Fidel Castro love, and comparing Ray Lewis and the Ravens owner to Leo and Sam in Django Unchained.


    Keep going, you're slowly inching him up to matching Antonio Brown...might get there in a few decades at this pace.

    BTW, I am in no way advocating that we should sign Kaepernick, just saying that Brown is light-years beyond Kaep in terms of being a distraction.

  • Seems like a very Harvinesque signing to me but it feels like it would hardly matter.

    Sure, what AB did to the Raiders was ridiculous. (And I hate the Raiders for moving to Vegas)

    But would it even matter here?

    We already HAVE the #1 QB+WR combination in the NFL. At least in terms of being the most effective + efficient combination.

    We don't throw the ball enough for it to matter, but if we did - we have the horses. How is adding AB to the mix going to make much difference when we won't be throwing the ball unless down by 2 TDs?

  • I would think because it forces their #3 cb to cover AB, which seems good for us. He's crazy though so there's that.

  • I have always been against this idea. Dude is soooooooo selfish as a human being. Today I saw a report asking if AB and Russ are working out together. I thought about how I do t trust AB at all and then I thought what it could look like if he WAS trustworthy. I’m ashamed to say I think it would be amazing to have him if he behaved. That said I think I’ll be secretly happy if he ends up with us, but outwardly skeptical.

  • I guarantee we already have guys on the team, who are just as selfish, and say crazy stuff behind doors. People just know how nuts he is, because he is arguably the top WR in the nfl when he plays. Probably a top 10 player. So the media spotlight is on him all the time. Take him, and keep the media away. We would instantly have the top WR room in the nfl.

  • I am not convinced that AB wants to be any team's third receiver, not even second receiver. Is AB good enough to be our first and go to WR?

    I can foresee locker room issues with Lockett and Metcalf, unless we change our MO into a pass first team, air Hawks?

  • If the choice is that the Seahawks sign AB, or I 'do' a leper prostitute with Covid-19, bring on the hooker. Screw that sociopathic narcissist! You might as well volunteer for terminal cancer.

  • I think the Hawks maybe waiting on Gordon to see what happens first.. AB could be a backup plan if Gordon doesn't work out. Gordon would possibly be a priority since he probably would come at a cheaper price... IDK.

    #3 CB on AB? That’s a fantasy scenario. More realistic scenario is that #1 CB is on AB, while Metcalf or Lockett get the #3 CB on them and then RW throws their way. AB pouts because he isn’t getting all the passes. Causing a friction in the locker room. No thanks.

    That is exactly what will happen eventually and I thought RW was
    smart enough to understand that.
    AB is like TO me me me and more me.He is never going to lose
    the me part in him no matter how much he changes the action(s)
    He will just quietly be selfish to collect a check while numbers go
    down because he needs to be center of attention to thrive.

  • These are grown men. You lace the contract with incentives...no guarantees.

    He acts up, you cut his ass. Pretty simple.

    Low risk and, if he's straightened out, very high reward.

    If he brings back the old AB sans distraction, he's this team's #1 receiver. Not taking anything away from our already incredible tandem of Lockett and DK. I can see them actually benefitting from this.

    Apparently Antonio Brown and a few others didn't get the memo. If they're grown men, then they sure don't act like it.
