Just two weeks ago, after Antonio Brown was released by the Oakland Raiders and quickly signed by the New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll admitted his team was interested in the star wideout. Friday, after Brown was cut by the Patriots, Carroll was asked if his team still has interest.

In short, the answer is no. Gregg Bell of The News Tribune relays that Carroll does not appear to want to test the waters with Brown.

"We're pretty well set right now. We kind of know where we are going with that."

Bell reports that Carroll used a "dismissive" tone when answering the question.

Carroll's decision does not come as a surprise. Brown is under investigation by the league after he was accused by multiple women of sexual assault. He was cut by the Patriots after he allegedly sent threatening text messages to one of his accusers.

Brown cannot be placed on the commissioner's exempt list because he isn't on a team, but if the league does find that he committed wrongdoing, he could be placed on it after he signs with a team.

It remains to be seen if a team is going to be willing to take a flyer on him. Some think his career could be over.
