Talent leads to second chances
While that would be the end of an NFL career for most players, a player as talented as Antonio Brown will continue to attract attention. If not of NFL general managers, then definitely of sports media and other NFL players. And as long as Brown can find NFL players willing to work out with him, he will continue to stir the pot of NFL rumors linking him to another NFL team.
There will never be a shortage of NFL teams seeking help at wide receiver. And so, there will never be an end to NFL rumors linking Antonio Brown for the foreseeable future. Right now, a recent workout of Brown with Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has stirred rumors linking Brown to the Seahawks.

A workout is all it takes to be rumored as the next free agent signing.
Nothing could be finer than to be a 49er
But the Seahawks are not the only NFC West team rumored with interest in Brown. The San Francisco 49ers, a team in need of receiver help, is another NFL team linked to Antonio Brown, even without a workout with any 49ers.

The logic behind the 49ers presumed interest in Brown is based upon the team’s need and the rapidly closing window of opportunity to win a Super Bowl with their current talented roster. Of course, other teams are connected to Brown via the NFL Rumor mill right now as well.
