  • would a be help or her Seattle.

  • He would help them for a long as he was there.

  • How long that lasts, he's given us.

  • No indication he will last.

  • That's all like, Well, if I were in his position, I know now would be the time to buckle down.

  • But none of his behavior tells us he would last.

  • But while he was there, look, you called it a multimillion dollar question.

  • I don't know Molly.

  • I don't know what he signs for.

  • He's cost himself so many tens of millions of dollars.

  • You know you're going to get him on a discount on a huge discount, even if there are multiple suitors, which there will be.

  • And why will there be?

  • He did.

  • He played one game for the Patriots last year.

  • His stint with New England lasted 11 days after he outstayed his welcome and really got himself kind of thrown off the Raiders before he ever played a game for them at all and threw everyone under the bus on the way.

  • But in that one game for the Patriots, he was targeted eight times.

  • He wound up catching three first downs and a touchdown in the just walked onto the Patriots and and caught a touchdown.

  • He look, if you said Who do you who do I really believe that?

  • The best wide out in football?

  • I'd say Odell Beckham Jr.

  • If you want to say, Well, who could you prove really everything in the locker room on the field with size checks, every box?

  • I'd say Julio Jones.

  • But if you just want to say who's been the most productive wide out in football when he's on the field since Jerry Rice, Maybe it's really, really Jerry Rice, Randy Moss and Antonio Brown.

  • In terms of production, it's It's through the roof, so I don't know how long he lasts.

  • But while he is on the team, he will help them.

  • That's why they want him.

  • That's why multiple teams wanted because the evidence says he's the best in the game.

  • I disagree.

  • I think he would hurt the Seattle Seahawks.

  • He's all world.

  • He's a Hall of Fame talent.

  • There's no reason to debate that.

  • We all know how surreal Antonio Brown is.

  • Here's the problem.

  • The Seattle Seahawks are undefeated.

  • We had the great Russell Wilson on this show last week who is the number one player he was raving about.

  • Mexico Calf.

  • He came Metcalfe.

  • That's the face.

  • That's the face of this franchise moving forward outside of Russell Wilson, he is.

  • The guy is going to be a primary target.

  • What's one of the things that could easily easily turn Antonio Brown into the petulant individual that he's known to be?

  • Let him get five targets against the fact that he's not the priority that he's treated like Odell Beckham?

  • Jr is being treated in Cleveland right now, for crying out loud, where he's getting four or five targets a game.

  • Antonio Brown would lose his mind.

  • I'm not saying that Antonio Brown doesn't deserve to be back in the NFL, that he doesn't deserve another chance.

  • This is the land of second chances, third chances.

  • This is This is America.

  • I get all of that, and I'm not sitting up here saying Antonio Brown should not be a part of the NFL again.

  • My personal preference is that he goes someplace like Baltimore.

  • Obviously, you're familiar with the A F C North.

  • You'd be highly motivated to really get take a dig at your former team, the Pittsburgh Steelers you might end up going against the Raiders.

  • Another team you might wanna thio, even though you were the one at fault, especially with the Raiders.

  • Okay, All of those things may be true, but because they don't have some all world elite bonified Number one target for Lamar Jackson, I would say that would be an ideal place in Seattle.

  • You've got Russell Wilson.

  • You've got D K.

  • Metcalf.

  • You have David Moore.

  • You have Tyler Lockett.

  • You've got Greg Olsen.

  • You've got a multitude off targets.

  • And they are.

  • Their success is predicated on team ball, particularly on the offensive side of the ball in the number one offense in the NFL.

  • That a number four passing attack.

  • They're led by a leading N V P candidate and Russell Wilson, who is known for Justus much of his playing ability as being a model citizen.

  • Ah, leader, somebody that you know toes the company line and does what's in the best interest of the collective whole, as opposed to himself.

  • Toe have all of that in place and then to turn around and instead, look at that.

  • No, no, no.

  • You go for Odell Beckham Jr.

  • You try to trade for that man.

  • That somebody that you bring to Seattle to join that crew.

  • Not a guy like Antonio Brown who's not getting his money.

  • Not only is he not getting his money, but then he'd be a secondary.

  • You gotta give stuff up for E.

  • Antonio Brown just signed for pennies on the dollar.

  • What?

  • I'm talking about what's gonna work for the team.

  • You don't even need a receiver.

  • I'm not talking finances.

  • I know financially.

  • Obviously, Antonio Brown is in no position has no leverage.

  • So that's where you go.

  • But no, I'm not bringing them to Seattle.

  • Yeah, I'm a big chemistry guy, man.

  • And there's no question that Seattle right now their chemistry is exactly how you want it on the offensive side of the ball.

  • It's exactly where you want.

  • Russell has a great report with DK.

  • Russell has a great report with higher lock it.

  • You know that Chris Carson is a heck of a runner.

  • Um, you know, from a play calling perspective there in a nice groove as faras mixing running past and there are allowing Russell to really flourish, meaning that they're not keeping him in a boxer allowing him to be to creative force that he is.

  • And then, if you bring someone in who right now look his?

  • His resume is so pristine as far as his ability to produce on the football field and produced in all environments.

  • Meeting first down, second down, third down, deep passing game, intermediate passing game run after the catch.

  • I mean, that's why Antonio Brown is gonna go to the Hall of Fame is a Hall of Fame caliber wide receiver.

  • But the question is, and and as you guys have both alluded to and Stephen A Who you particularly I mean, what is he going to do to the football team?

  • What?

  • How is he going to be when he sees that this is really about Russ DK Tyler Lockett?

  • Pete Carroll?

  • You know, the positive psychology energy that they really in, you know, infused into that football team what's gonna happen if he doesn't seem feel as though he is a integral part of that?

  • If he isn't like option A all the time, you just don't know.

  • And but all you and all you could do is go off of history.

  • And if I'm a general manager, team president, head coach, offensive coordinator all.

  • I mean, I'm getting that whole group around right now around the table and talk well, actually, not around the table on a zoom calling, talking about that.

  • I'm sitting there going.

  • Is this really worth it?

  • We understand what he would bring to us, particularly in an area maybe where they have struggled a little bit, which is on third down.

  • He could be the thing that really takes this offense and just pushes it over the top and says, Do N v p to roll.

  • We're gonna book our spot right now in the NFC championship game, and here we are.

  • But it's the negative.

  • Its's the negative possibility that would keep me from doing it.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.
