Buccaneers Waiting On Antonio Brown

The Buccaneers managed to keep just about everyone from their Super Bowl squad. However, wide receiver Antonio Brown stands out as a notable straggler. On Tuesday, head coach Bruce Arians said that it hasn’t been for a lack of trying. 

We’re just gonna take our time,” Arians said (Twitter link via WTSP’s Grace Remington). “There’s offers out there. We’ll see how it goes.”

For his part, Brown has said that he wants to stay put. Shortly after the Bucs beat the Chiefs, AB expressed his desire to go for a “two-peat”.

Man I’d love to, I look forward to going through the process, this is a great spot for me and I would love to come back and give it another shot at a two-peat,” Brown said after the game. “I would love to be back here next year. It would mean everything to be back. I’m just excited and super grateful.”

Brown, 33 this summer, posted solid — but not spectacular — numbers in 2020. In eight post-suspension games, the veteran had 45 catches for 483 yards and four touchdowns. Extrapolated for a full 16-game slate, that would have given him a 90/966/8 line.

Brown wants to come back and the Bucs have reciprocated with an offer on the table. The real question is – Does anyone else have real interest in adding Brown and the baggage that comes along with him? Ultimately, Brown may have to settle for less than what he wants if he hopes to play in 2021.

      He doesn’t want to participate in training camp or pre season. He would sign immediately if he could get that clause in the contract. Hell he would still be the apple of Big Ben’s eye if he could skip training camp.

        Doesn’t want to participate in TC or PS? Oh…That’s a good sign huh? Smh You think he would have grown up by now…..33 years old.

  1. Yep it is

    That didn’t take him long to revert back to his old self. What a punk

      He never changed in the first place, they simply got him to keep quiet and behave for half a season.

      He’s a Man child. Similar to the traitor/Domestic terrorist Donald Trump

    He could be nominated for the biggest fool in the NFL but actually there are quite a few guys in the running. As a Steeler fan I don’t think much of AB. He talked a lot of sheet after got the boot from the team . . . got a nice contract from Oakland and then blew that. Only could make it a week in NE and then talked his BS there. I gotta say he got lucky with TB and if he had any smarts (which he isn’t known for) he will stay there.

    I’d resign him, with one stipulation, that he still has to live at Tom brady’s house. If he says he’s getting his own place, no thanks. Seems like the GOAT is the only one who can keep him in check on a regular basis…
