Not so long ago, Antonio Brown would have been an undisputed starter in any of the Top-5 ranked teams in the NFL. However, it is safe to say that the veteran wide receiver’s stock has considerably ‘fallen’ in recent years.
His temperament in the team dressing room, attitude towards the Head Coach and team owners, and of course, his off-field antics, have turned Antonio Brown into a metaphorical ‘pandora’s box’.
Since joining the NFL in 2010, Brown has amassed 11, 263 receiving yards from 103 starts in the league. He spent over 9 years with the Pittsburgh Steelers before moving to the Oakland Raiders and then the New England Patriots last season.
Now, along with Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, can Antonio Brown get back to his ‘dangerous’ best?
As Brown edges closer towards a potential NFL return, he is leaving no stone unturned in team practice sessions. The 7-time Pro Bowler was seen training with new teammates LeSean McCoy and Rob Gronkowski.
The Bucs have brought in quite a few players on 1-year deals apart from AB. Former Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette was also signed on a 1-year deal before the 2020 season began.
Meanwhile, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Head Coach Bruce Arians is expecting big things from his new star signing.
The former New England Patriots man will be eager to prove his doubters wrong over the next 8 weeks. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers go up against reigning NFC South champions, New Orleans Saints, on Sunday.
With Chris Godwin still out, a potential Antonio Brown – Mike Evans pair up will be a delightful sight for the Buccaneers fans in Week 9. A win on Sunday will certainly bring Tom Brady and Co. one step closer to the NFL Playoffs.
