Though Russell Wilson is apparently on board with the Seattle Seahawks' potential pursuit of free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown, it may be a nonstarter with the team for the time being.

During an appearance Tuesday on The Herd with Colin Cowherd, NBC Sports' Peter King said he found any speculation linking Brown with the Seahawks "fairly meaningless" because Brown is facing a possible suspension from the NFL.

710 ESPN Seattle's John Clayton reported Wednesday that Wilson "would love to add" Brown ahead of the 2020 season.

Brown made one appearance for the New England Patriots in 2019 before the team released him in September.

One of his former trainers, Britney Taylor, had filed a federal lawsuit, alleging he sexually assaulted her twice in 2017 and raped her in 2018, per the New York Times' Ben Shpigel.

Robert Klemko of Sports Illustrated interviewed another woman who had been commissioned by Brown to paint a mural at his home in Pennsylvania. She said that while painting the mural one day, Brown approached her from behind while naked and "holding a small hand towel over his genitals."

Following the story's publication, the woman told Klemko she began receiving "intimidating" messages (warning: offensive language):

NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy stated Sept. 20 that Brown wasn't subject to the commissioner's exempt list as long as he remained a free agent but that the NFL was "presently investigating multiple allegations."

The 31-year-old turned himself in to authorities in January after a truck driver accused him of assault. Brown was charged with felony burglary conveyance, misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor criminal mischief in March.
