The Tampa Bay Buccaneers can be Super Bowl contenders with their new addition
ESPN reported that Brown had reached an agreement for a one-year deal with the Buccaneers and that he would be expected to be available by Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints. Brown has to pass COVID-19 protocols and contract language is still being finalized.
While some question the move simply because of Brown’s past in locker rooms, the truth of the matter is that the veteran gives Tampa Bay legitimate depth and another weapon on the offensive side of the ball. Ultimately, that means the Bucs are solidifying themselves as Super Bowl contenders.
The Buccaneers are sold out to winning this season
The front-office has made it clear what the plan is for the 2020 season: Win and win now. This franchise isn’t trying to build for the future or look towards potential development for seasons down the road.
They’re looking for pieces that can contribute right away and they’re trying to give Tom Brady every single option possible for him to be successful.
Antonio Brown may not be the same wide receiver we saw a few years ago, but he still has talent and ability. He still is a guy who could come in and be a perfect complement to Mike Evans and Chris Godwin.
In addition, bringing in Brown gives the Bucs more depth at the wide receiver position, a place where the team has suffered injuries this season.
It may be a surprise to some, but this is a winning move by the franchise with very little downside due to it being just a one-year contract.
The Bucs are making moves to win now and it will be fun to see what Antonio Brown is able to do when he suits up in Tampa Bay.
