Should the Buccaneers sign Antonio Brown?
If you have a chance to have one of the most talented wide receiving corps ever, you need to go for it. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have that chance and they need to take it.
Antonio Brown has been a headache for sure, but he misses Brady and would no doubt thrive if he had a second chance in the NFL. If he works underneath with Chris Godwin and Mike Evans opening things up vertically, he could have a fun time in Tampa Bay. If things don't work out, the Bucs can just cut him and still have two Pro-Bowl wide receivers.
Signing AB is a no-brainer move.
Tylt sports editor Dan Tran breaks things down with former NFL players about when pain is not worth the price of glory.
Why would Tampa Bay sign someone who won't be able to see the field indefinitely? The NFL is just waiting to put him on the Commissioner's Exempt List, which would prevent him from playing until the league deems him worthy of it and there's no way of knowing when that will actually be. His behavior as recent as January 2020 certainly doesn't inspire much confidence.
There is no team that wants to take on a player they don't know they can depend on. Brown and Bucs head coach Bruce Arians may not even have a good relationship after Brown lashed out at Arians when the coach said the wide receiver had changed since his days in Pittsburgh. There is no need to risk team chemistry when you already have two of the best wide receivers in the game in Godwin and Evans.
