Duane Brown arrested at airport for having gun in luggage
Brown allegedly had the weapon in his luggage as he went through security screening at Terminal 6.
"To err is human, and this clearly was an accident," Brown's agent Kennard McGuire said in a statement on Monday, according to CBS Sports' Josina Anderson. "As a law-abiding citizen, Duane will continue to exercise proper judgment and continue education on gun safety measures."
The free agent started all 17 games for the Seattle Seahawks in 2021. He played four-plus seasons in Seattle after coming over via trade from the Houston Texans in 2017.
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said in April that the team was interested in bringing Brown back, but the 36-year-old's chances of returning hit a wall when Seattle selected Charles Cross in the first round of the NFL draft.
