It has been on a bumpy road for a former NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown. First, he was cut by the Las Vegas Raiders before the start of the 2020 season, which was the team that traded for him that same season. Then Brown went on to sign with the New England Patriots and not even a week later was cut again for sexual assault allegations. For a moment it looked like AB’s NFL career was over. But rumors of teams like the Seattle Seahawks and Baltimore Ravens wanting to sign him after his suspension is over in week nine of the current NFL season.
Today, Antonio Brown signed with his former teammate Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a one year deal that starts at $750,000 but can earn up to $2.5 million off of incentives like receptions, yards, and touchdowns Brown will not be eligible for reinstatement or be able to start practicing with the Bucs until his suspension after Week 8 and will have a “tight leash” on him on and off the field.
The so-called Tom-pa Bay team is starting to come together with the addition of AB to an already stacked offense and a team currently first in the NFC South with a 5-2 record still on the road to make it to the Super Bowl.
Personally, I think the signing of Brown was a great move by head coach Bruce Arians as he thinks Brown has matured from his troubled past and is ready to put it all behind him and ready to make a Super Bowl run.
