Buccaneers, Antonio Brown agree to 1-year deal

       The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have reached an agreement with free-agent wide receiver Antonio Brown on a one-year deal, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. It shocks me that any team would bring Brown in after his racist, backstabbing, anti-police antics in the past.

Brown still has to pass COVID-19 protocols, and the deal hasn’t been finalized, but he’s expected to make his Bucs debut against the New Orleans Saints in Week 9.

The seven-time Pro Bowler is currently suspended but eligible to be reinstated following Week 8. He reportedly generated interest from multiple teams, including the Seattle Seahawks.

The Buccaneers will be the fourth team of Brown’s troubled career.

The 2010 sixth-round pick spent his first nine NFL campaigns with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was traded to the Raiders, now of Las Vegas, in 2019 but failed to make it to the regular season with the team after demanding a release. The New England Patriots then signed Brown but cut him after just one game due to off-field issues.

The 32-year-old has caught 841 passes for 11,263 receiving yards and 75 touchdowns since entering the league. He’s played in only one game since the end of the 2018 season, during which he caught a touchdown pass from Tom Brady.

Brady made a strong push for Brown, according to Schefter.

Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians, who was the Steelers’ offensive coordinator in 2010 and 2011, said in March that Brown wasn’t “a fit in our locker room.”

The Buccaneers added several high-profile players during the offseason, including Brady, tight end Rob Gronkowski, and running backs Leonard Fournette and LeSean McCoy.

Tampa Bay’s wide receiver corps - which features Pro Bowlers Mike Evans and Chris Godwin - is already one of the NFL’s most talented.

Here’s how their offensive skills group will look:

QB: Tom Brady

RB: Ronald Jones

WR: Mike Evans

WR: Chris Godwin

WR: Antonio Brown

TE: Rob Gronkowski

The 4-2 Buccaneers currently lead the NFC South.
