Antonio Brown is “working towards” a deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which Tom Brady pushed hard for, Adam Schefter reports:

Rick Stroud, who covers the Bucs for the Tampa Bay Times, adds that negotiations are “99 percent done.”
Brady and Brown worked together after Brown landed with the New England Patriots last year. However, Brown played just one game there. He was released after he was accused of sexual assault in a civil case that is still pending.
Brown is currently serving an eight-game suspension from the NFL. If his status is not further affected by the civil case, he would be eligible to play Week 9 against the Saints.
