WR - TB
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have re-signed WR Antonio Brown to a one-year, $6.25 million contract. The deal includes up to $3.1 million guaranteed, including a $2 million signing bonus.
Brown returns to the Buccaneers on a one-year deal which includes a $2 million signing bonus. He will join one of the best offenses in the NFL and is expected to be the team’s WR3 behind Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Brown reportedly always wanted to be back with Tampa Bay. AB gives the GOAT QB Tom Brady another offensive weapon as the Buccaneers look for a Super Bowl repeat. Brown hauled in 45 receptions on 62 targets for 483 yards and four touchdowns across eight games for the Buccaneers in 2020. The seven-time Pro Bowl WR is currently 59th among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus draft rankings for 2021.
Antonio Brown and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in contract negotiations for the receiver to return to the team, but they're nowhere near an agreement on the financial terms.
Brown's looking for a deal close to market value for veteran receivers, ranging between $4.5 million (DeSean Jackson) and $8 million (T.Y. Hilton). Tampa Bay, however, wants to re-sign Brown on a deal closer to the $2 million price tag he signed on last season. In eight games with the team, Brown totaled 45 receptions on 62 targets, 483 yards, and four touchdowns. If he returns, consider Brown the No.3 receiver for the team and a WR3/WR4 for fantasy football.
Jenna Laine of ESPN is reporting that the Buccaneers are actively having conversations with free agent WR Antonio Brown.
In addition to Brown, Tampa Bay is also having conversations with Ndamukong Suh, Leonard Fournette and Ryan Succop. AB was a mid-season pickup for the Buccaneers and finished 2020 with 45 receptions for 483 yards and four touchdowns across eight games. Brown hasn’t been contacted by any other teams and will most likely re-sign with Tampa Bay. The 32-year-old is currently 51st among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus draft rankings.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Antonio Brown caught five of six targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-9 Super Bowl LV victory against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Brown returned from a knee injury that sidelined him in the NFC Championship game, hauling in most of his targets including a pivotal one-yard touchdown reception at the end of the first half to put the Buccaneers up 21-6. The veteran wideout overcame a tumultuous offseason heading into 2020, proving valuable down the stretch with two postseason touchdowns and could be a pivotal piece of the Bucs offense in 2021 if Godwin or Evans decides to test free agency and look elsewhere. If Brown returns as the third-option in the Bucs receiving corps, fantasy managers should expect to land him in rounds eight thru twelve in 2021 redraft leagues.
Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown is officially active for Super Bowl 55 against the Kansas City Chiefs despite being listed as questionable with a knee injury.
Brown missed the NFC Championship Game and was listed as questionable, but he was able to practice this week and was expected to play. He should return to his usual role as third fiddle behind Mike Evans and Chris Godwin in the Tampa Bay offense after catching 45 of his 62 targets for 483 yards and four touchdowns during eight regular season games.
