After joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the middle of the 2020 season and helping the team to a Super Bowl victory, wide receiver Antonio Brown said he’d like to stick around for another season.

Brown originally signed with the Bucs before the end of an eight-game suspension and when he took the field as a Buccaneer, it was the first time he had played since the second week of the 2019 season.

He went on to have 45 catches for 483 yards and four touchdowns in the regular season and three catches for 59 yards and a touchdown in the first two playoff games. He missed the NFC Championship Game with a knee injury.

Brown returned with five catches for 22 yards and a touchdown in the 31-9 Super Bowl win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Feb. 8.

Brown’s future in Tampa may not be the most pressing concern for the team. Brown joins a growing list of free agents that includes Shaq Barrett, Lavonte David, Chris Godwin, Rob Gronkowski, and Ndamukong Suh.

Brown said returning to Tampa would mean everything to him, and he is excited and hopeful for another opportunity.

“Man I’d love to, I look forward to going through the process, this is a great spot for me and I would love to come back and give it another shot at a 2-peat,” he said. “I would love to be back here next year.”

  1. I agree. I think AB needs to be in Tampa where he should be able to straighten his life out, deal with the rest of the fall out from his last 2 years, get back on track, and hopefully blossom. He and Brady have undeniable chemistry together. It would be fun to see.

  2. That’s a pretty substantial statistical line for half a season. Plus the Bucs were vastly improved after he joined the team over the first half of the season. I’d be interested in a deep dive into how much of that is due to gelling as a team versus adding AB. Now that’s sports journalism that would be interesting. Let’s talk about on the field play instead of hats in lockers.
