The Bucs Reportedly Had 1 Main Factor For Signing Antonio Brown
Antonio Brown is apparently heading to Tampa Bay.
The Buccaneers have supposedly reached an arrangement with the All-Pro broad receiver who last played in the NFL in September of 2019. Brown, 32, has been suspended for the first half of the 2020 regular season, however he will end up being qualified. When he does, he’ll reportedly be playing for Tampa Bay.
ESPN reported on Friday night that Brown has reached an agreement with the Buccaneers for the remainder of the 2020 season.
” While agreement language still needs to be settled and Brown has to pass COVID-19 protocols before he can join the group, Brown is most likely to make his Bucs debut in Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints on Nov. 8,” ESPN reports.
Tampa Bay Bucs insider Jenna Laine reports that the team had one main factor for signing Brown: depth. The Buccaneers have dealt with numerous injuries to their pass receivers unit this season. Brown will include major depth to the position moving on.
However injuries are the essential factor. That’s how the group is seeing this. Mike Evans hasn’t been able to practice much given that Week 4 with his ankle. He’s stagnating the exact same. Chris Godwin simply returned from a hamstring injury. Scotty Miller’s been hindered by a groin/hip injury.
Tampa Bay is 4-2 on the season coming off a blowout win over the Green Bay Packers.
The Bucs are set to handle the Raiders on Sunday at 4:05 p.m. E.T.
