The arrival of Antonio Brown in Florida has now transformed Tampa Bay Buccaneers into potential Super Bowl contenders. Bruce Arians has certainly done a good job with the players at his disposal, having considerably strengthened in the offseason.
The former Pittsburgh Steelers man is eligible to return to the playing field after the completion of his 8-game ban. The Bucs will happily welcome Antonio Brown to their wide receiver corps. alongside the likes of Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Scott Miller.
Will Antonio Brown and Tom Brady lead the Buccaneers to the Super Bowl trophy in 2020?
The hype surrounding Antonio Brown is real. Despite turning 32 in July, Brown is still considered one of the best wideouts in the game since making his debut in 2010.
“Anytime you get a chance to play with the greatest quarterback in the world [and] to be around Bruce Arians – a great offensive guru – and be around a lot of great guys who are already familiar with me from the Steelers 10 years ago [like] Antwaan Randle El, Larry Foote, Byron Leftwich [and] Coach Goodie (Harold Goodwin).
“There’s a lot of familiar faces that know me personally more so than what people write or what people say. For me, it was a no-brainer coming here, being around guys who understand me [and], obviously, to play with the greatest quarterback in the world,” Brown said via USA Today last weekend.
Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are cruising comfortably in the NFL right now. The Florida-based franchise is on a 3-game winning streak at the moment.
Brady and the Bucs have found their ‘mojo’ and seem unplayable at the moment. Adding a game-changing wideout such as Antonio Brown to their roster only makes the Buccaneers a stronger side. Well, at least on paper.
But will Arians risk throwing in the veteran wide receiver against the Saints on Sunday? We’ll find out tomorrow.
