Antonio Brown signs 1-year deal with Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The rumors of Antonio Brown signing with an NFL team have been swirling for weeks, but they’ve finally come to an end.

Brown, now 32 years old, has agreed to a 1-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and will be reunited with Tom Brady after their brief stint together in New England.

Brown is currently serving a suspension for multiple violations of the leagues personal conduct policy. The suspension will conclude at the end of week 8, meaning Brown will be eligible to join the Bucs roster the following week.

He is expected to make his Buccaneers debut in week 9 against the New Orleans Saints. Another key matchup to look out for will be in week 12 when the Buccaneers take on the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs.

The addition of Brown adds to a Buccaneers offensive corps that already includes Tom Brady, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Ronald Jones II, Leonard Fournette, LeSean McCoy and Rob Gronkowski.

The Buccaneers current record is 4-2 and they face the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday afternoon, the team Antonio Brown spurned last season before joining the New England Patriots. Brown’s stint in New England lasted just one game. He recorded four receptions and one touchdown in the contest.

In his career Brown has 841 receptions for 11,263 yards and 74 touchdowns after being a sixth-round pick for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2010.

Brown must pass the league’s coronavirus protocols before he can officially join the team.
