Finally, It’s Official: Antonio Brown Back With Bucs

We already had a good idea it would happen and now it’s official — veteran wide receiver Antonio Brown has re-signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Brown entered free agency after one year with the Buccaneers, and what a year it was. Brown joined Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski and some other ex-New England Patriots to capture a Super Bowl in their first go-round in Tampa.

Of course, things haven’t always bee so rosy with Brown. He’s had a few major meltdowns in other locales, but next to Brady, he’s been a model teammate and stayed grounded.

“We wanted AB back,” Tampa Bay coach Bruce Arians said. “He was a model citizen the whole time he’s been here.”

Brown actually agreed to the one-year contract with the Bucs in April, but the deal was pending after he underwent a minor knee procedure.

“He has to pass the physical,” Arians said, via PewterReport.com. “Hopefully we’ll have a scope on Tuesday, he’s getting his knee cleaned out, and everything will work out fine. It’s just a matter of a physical.”

Brown appeared in eight regular-season games in 2020, compiling 483 yards on 45 catches, with four touchdowns. He also caught a TD in the Super Bowl, a one-yarder from Brady just before the end of the first half. The Buccaneers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs, 31-9.
