Antonio Brown Suit Has Been Settled, Reuniting With Bucs Seems Inevitable Now

Antonio Brown's legal battle with a woman accusing him of battery is over, allowing the veteran receiver to focus on returning to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Brown has reached a settlement in a civil dispute with accuser Britney Taylor.

Brown, 32, appeared in eight regular-season games with the Super Bowl champion Buccaneers last season, catching 45 passes for 483 yards, including three touchdowns. He also reeled in a TD catch in the Super Bowl, a one-yard reception from Tom Brady with six seconds left in the first half.

Brown signed a one-year, $1.1 million deal with Tampa Bay before the season and is now a free agent. There has been talk that he wants more than a one-year contract this time around, and the Buccaneers may very well give it to him.
