Rumors are swirling about a potential WR candidate for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been one of the hottest franchises in the league following the 2020 offseason.
The Buccaneers signed Tom Brady and made a trade for Rob Gronkowski, in addition to making several moves on the defense to retain key pieces. All of that has resulted in them being considered one of the top contenders in the NFC heading into this season.
Prominent Radio Host JT the Brick and former NFL Executive Mike Lombardi both said they are hearing that the Bucs may be interested in bringing in former Pro-Bowl wide receiver Antonio Brown.
Antonio Brown is the answer for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa Bay doesn’t need another wide receiver, that’s for sure.
They have plenty of talented options from Evans to Godwin and Scotty Miller, as well as rookie Tyler Johnson, just to name a few.
Despite that amount of talent, there’s something intriguing about bringing Brown into the organization.
It’s not because we should expect Brown to return to Pro-Bowl form. Instead, it’s the potential for him to still show his pure talent in a WR3 role.
Because of the train wreck of a season that he had previously, the Bucs can get Brown for relatively cheap and even instill some ‘incentive-based measures’ in his contract. The result would be an absolute low-risk move with high-reward potential.
If Brown didn’t work out, there would be little loss for the Bucs.
But if he does work out, you could be talking about a team that is now considered a Super Bowl contender with the best and deepest wide receiver group in the league.
