The Seattle Seahawks may not be done bolstering their offense, especially their wide receiver corps as they are looking at a pair of veteran receivers as the season draws closer.

According to ESPN’s Brady Henderson, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that the team is interested in Brown, who was just hit with an eight-game suspension by the league, adding that Seahawks’ general manager John Schneider has been monitoring his “complex” situation.

Furthermore, Carroll said that the team is “very open” to bringing back veteran wide receiver Josh Gordon who was suspended indefinitely in December for violations of the league’s policies on performance-enhancing substances and substances of abuse.

Gordon has recently applied for reinstatement.

“What I’d say to you is what we always say because it’s what we always do and who we are,” Carroll said of Brown. “John is competing at every turn. There’s never been a process, unless we just missed it, that we weren’t involved with to understand what the chances were of helping our club. He’s all over it. He understands what’s going on right now, as much as you can. It’s a very complex situation. We just need to see where it fits somewhere down the road. That’s all I got for you.”

Gordon, 29, caught 7 passes for 139 yards over 5 games for Seattle last season.

“It’s not in our hands,” Carroll said. “Josh did a really good job with us last year. He fit in really well. He was part of this team by the way we opened and embraced his coming to us but also by the way he adapted. So we are very open to that thought, and we’ll see what happens. I don’t know. I can’t tell you what’s going to happen on that.”
