The Seattle Seahawks decided not to pursue Antonio Brown after performing their due diligence on him.

Brown had contentious exits from the Pittsburgh Steelers and Las Vegas Raiders. Brown also was suspended eight games for multiple Personal Conduct Policy violations. He faces further potential discipline for a pending civil lawsuit alleging sexual assault, based on the evidence developed.

The Seahawks may have acknowledged interest in Brown simply to placate Russell Wilson, who had pushed for them to sign him.
