Antonio Brown officially signs with the Buccaneers

Antonio Brown will be getting his latest second chance in Tampa.

Per multiple reports, the Buccaneers officially have signed Brown to a one-year deal.

He’ll be eligible to practice and play after Tampa Bay’s Week Eight game at the Giants. Which means he’ll make his debut on Sunday, November 8 against the Saints on Sunday Night Football.

It was against the Saints in December 2018 that the football-following world last saw Brown perform at a high level. In a game at the Superdome, Brown caught 14 passes for 185 yards and two touchdowns. A late fumble from receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster helped cost Pittsburgh the win, which in turn killed their playoff hopes.

Two days later, the Steelers named Smith-Schuster the team MVP, Brown reportedly got upset about it and stormed out of practice, and the rest is history. History that quite possibly will repeat itself.

  1. I love this signing because it’s not only a sport, the NFL is entertainment and this will bring an X factor to the league.

  2. I do not mean this as a joke whatsoever, but given his multiple and on-going accusations of sex offenses and general assaults without him having a conviction that requires him to register as an offender, how will Tampa Bay protect the community?

    Didn’t they also make Jameis Winston their #1 pick after strong sexual assault charges that the prosecutor said that just because he didn’t have enough evidence to indict him did not mean that he didn’t fully believe that the offense was committed?! He was convicted of the theft of the crab legs, as we know! Then he had a subsequent charge of sexually assaulting an Uber drive after he arrived in Tampa!

    We all know that celebrity buys you a lot of chances, but does this club claim to love the community but continue to throw money after these kinds of characters and bring them into the community?!

  3. I’m sure he was sat down and told that his previous behavior will not be acceptable. With that being said Tompa Bay just got even more dangerousand will probbly end up NFC champs. The one ones who can stop them are themselves.

  4. Besides “good luck!” what else is there to say?

    “If Belichick couldn’t make it work…”

    “Keeping Brown off of the oppositions team is just good strategy.”

  5. Mike Evans is limited and frustrated by an injury.
    Watch the P.I in the last game when, after the play, he throw is helmet going to the bench. Healthy Evans would have caught the ball despite the foul.
    He can heal and rest now they have A.Brown.
    But when Evans will return, we’ll see how A.Brown react.

    Brady loses a little luster with this addition. He should’ve need AB to win.
    ————————————————————————
    Should Mahomes need Tyreek Hill? How are these two things different?

  7. Brown is a violent, damaged, dangerous man with many near superhuman physical traits and now the Bucaneers have decided to allow him into the building and subject their employees to the chance of a very dangerous solo encounter with Brown. Do you feel safe knowing that brady is walking the same halls as that tragic but dangerous character? Be afraid Bucs fans, be VERY afraid…

  8. Hard to respect any team that would sign someone of very questionable character like AB. There’s an old saying “if you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything” that seems to fit this situation nicely. Tampa must be feeling lucky because they are definitely rolling the dice on this one. Interested to see where this goes…

  9. Tom Brady has already thrown for 18 TDs this season. Giving him AB is almost unfair to the rest of the league

  10. I don’t see the Bucs losing a single home game this season. I think they’ll lose one or two more games on the road against teams they
    should have beaten, but that will be it. Imagine if this team won a super bowl in their own stadium.

  11. I think someone finally got through to AB because we haven’t heard anything about him lately. He may be a spoil, entitled, lousy excuse for a human being but money talks. He is at that point where he realizes he needs money. I think he’s hoping to turn this opportunity into a big contract next year. I can’t see that happening but you never know.

    I get the feeling we’ll see a different AB because I suspect someone got him to see the light. However, I think this is his last chance. If he blows up with the Bucs, he’s done. I get the feeling Arians won’t put up with anything. Or, to keep him away from everyone else they could just do what the Bucs did with Keyshawn and pay for him to sit at home and stay away from the team.

    You just never know with AB though. He’s been enabled his entire life so who knows if the last six months have made a difference.

    Right. Because the other 31 teams all have 53 nice, little angels playing for them. Get real.

  13. Look at the collective millions that were lost just between AB and Le’Veon alone. Those two should have their own Geico commercial about making “bad decisions”. You think the 6-0 Steelers are lamenting those two has-beens? Mike Tomlin must find all of the team-shuffling between these 2 clowns quite amusing.

  14. Like the woman who thinks she’s the only one who can change her man, Tampa is about to learn a hard lesson.

  15. Dude is a trainwreck. You just never know which one of his personalities will show up on any given day. All it takes is a couple of days of Mr Big Chest acting crazy in the locker room for a team to come apart. Be careful what you wish for…..

    Bell earned a guaranteed $29m in two years with the Jets, whereas the Steelers franchise tag was only $14.5m for one year. Their “long-term” offer of $70m had a laughable $10m guarantee only.

    So given his on-field performance the last two years, you think the Steelers wouldn’t have cut him to save $60m?? Looks like both the Steelers AND LeBeon Bell came out ahead, as for the Jets, well they’re the Jets…

  17. Yet there is no mention of the numerous racial slurs he directed at team employees. Why was that swept under the rug like it was nothing? Must be that privilege thing.

    The Chiefs won all four games that Hill missed last season.

  19. Hey Supercharger!!!
    Brady loses a little luster my arse
    What a long, continuous poop stain
    Go slither back into your periwinkle shell. AB as a football player is talented. Ok maybe this guy has some areas for improvement…but don’t we all
