Buccaneers announce signing of Antonio Brown

Antonio Brown officially is back. We’ll see how long he stays.

The Buccaneers announced today the signing of Brown, in a press release with a headline that touts him as a four-time All-Pro receiver.

Indeed he was, but the last time that happened was in 2017. Since December 2018, Brown has appeared in only one regular-season game.

The release contains no quotes from Brown or anyone else. It will be interesting to see when/if he’s available to the media.

In a normal year, they’d have to make him available twice per week. This year, they can try to limit his exposure to questions, tough or otherwise.

Brown will wear No. 81 for the Bucs. We’d wait a few weeks before buying one, however, just to be safe.

  1. On the other hand, if you buy his jersey now, then it might become valuable to collectors in a few years!

  2. If he screws THIS one up, he truly is a lost soul. Nobody gets unlimited chances (See Terrell Owens and Money Manziel).

  3. Over/under before Mr. Big Chest does something stupid and gets in trouble with Bruce Arians. 2 1/2 weeks.

    I’m taking the under.

  4. This guy has been credibly accused of more than 1 sexual assault, but he’s back in the league. Colin Kaepernick respectfully kneels in protest of systemic racism and he’s banned for life.

  5. Not expecting the ‘young’ quick Brown but hopefully he has everything corrected mentally and helps the Bucs not become a detriment…

  6. Got a wide selection of helmets ready? How about some socks for cryotherapy? Hope no movers get in his way.

  7. And no mention or repercussions for using multiple racial slurs at team employees. No mention of it by ESPN. Total hypocrisy. This is who has the so called privilege.

  8. 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.

    Tampa,

    Thank you!

    Maybe you Seattle fans should be more worried about blowing a 10 point lead late in the 4th quarter to Arizona and your NFL worst rated defense giving up 479.2 yards per game.

    Talent gets you virtually unlimited chances, and Colin didn’t have it.

    *(respectfully? pig socks and Castro t-shirt)

    It was a condition of his contract that he must live in a ground floor apartment.

    And no more Cryotherapy.

  12. You can call management a racially derogatory name and that’s ok. Where’s LeBron and his SJW squad now? Where is ESPN’s article calling for the end of hatred? Where’s Stephen A’s outrage?

    When was he banned? Never. When has CK made an honest attempt to try to get back into the NFL? Also never. But that last part doesn’t fit the narrative, huh?

    It’s a lot easier to lose millions when you already have millions. Bell? He only held out for what he thought he was worth. Brown, now he’s an idiot.

  15. At least they went and got somebody. Time will tell how this works out. It’s ALL UP TO HIM. If he wants to join the Brady Bunch in Florida he better stay in line. Tom did not have crap on offense because Bill let them walk off. Tom won. Tom Wins. Tom does with Tom does. Bill does what Bill does. We will all do the math this year.

  16. Think he’ll have a hard time getting a moving company to take his stuff? I wonder if he is the only human that has a restraining order filed against him by rocks.

    No one has banned Kaepernick, but no one has seen the value in signing him, either.

    The equation is Value = Talent – Distraction – Cost. CK has medium talent, high distraction, and reportedly a high cost. AB has high talent, medium distraction, and low cost. AB’s value is higher. The equation also explains why Blaine Gabbert and Geno Smith have jobs.

    If Antonio Brown was at Colin Kaepernick’s talent level, no one would be talking about Antonio Brown and he’d be lucky if the XFL was interested in him.

  19. I guess you can never have too many receivers in today’s injury-riddled NFL, but Evans already has like 3 touches a game, he can’t be too excited.
    I swear top players rarely got hurt in the 70s, 80s and early 90s. Why so many injuries now? I only remember Lynn Swann and Curt Warner being hurt back in the day.

  20. OKay Bucaroos, AB is a cancer in waiting! Oe day our locker room will look like the Hatfield and McCoys battled field.

  21. I really am expecting a meltdown if he:
    – Doesnt get the ball
    – Doesnt get a call
    – Gets objectively called out by coaches one way or another.
    – Or will start saying things he shouldnt when asked by the media. Not only because of his personality per say. But the media will ask ruthless and personal questions with the intent of triggering him.

    And thank you for having one of the worst defenses on the planet right now.

  23. Love the bandwagon Bucs fans getting in on the conversation now that their team isn’t winning their customary 4-5 gms per year. Watching Brown melt down once he has a miscommunication w/ Brady will be priceless.

  24. The biggest risk to the Bucs from AB is that AB is irresponsible and won’t respect the bubble. Covid will raise it’s ugly head and he will put the Bucs at risk of playing with key players missing or causing fines and maybe forfeits. Then watch the locker room descend into chaos.
