Evidently, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are determined to make a massive statement in the NFL. As if recruiting Tom Brady and pairing him with Rob Gronkowski wasn’t enough, the Bucs are doing some more recruiting. This time, rumour from JT The Brick, has it that they have a very interesting target in mind, and his name is Antonio Brown.

The man has been out of action since 2019, owing to his involvement in some questionable off-field activities. At the time, he had made the switch from the Oakland Raiders to the New England Patriots. Unfortunately, his private life came back to bite him hard, and the Pats refused to field him in the squad, eventually cutting him off.

What does the future hold for Antonio Brown?

Since then, the 31-year old has been anxiously waiting for a chance to get back in the fray. Now, rumour has it that he may get a new lease of life and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could give him a second chance. Last year, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus predicted that Brown will be back on the field very soon. Now, it appears that he is vindicated, owing to the Buccaneers’ interest in the wide receiver.

Additionally, NFL analyst, Brian Baldinger also urged the San Francisco 49ers to make a move for Brown’s services. He said, “Well, he’s been working out with Deion Sanders this whole offseason, and he hasn’t been on Twitter, hasn’t been on social media. He’s been quietly working out with Deion, Deion’s son is working out with Tom Brady. There’s past there. There’s no question he wants to come back and play. His debut in Oakland was a disaster.”

Clearly, Brown is seeking redemption and trying to get his mind away from his off-field drama. So, he will be highly motivated to perform and prove his critics wrong. Additionally, it is also a golden opportunity for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to make a serious bid for the Super Bowl. With the likes of Rob Gronkowski, Tom Brady, Chris Godwin, OJ Howard and more, Tampa already have a solid team. If Antonio Brown joins in, it could make an already powerful team, overpowered.
