Antonio Brown reportedly agrees to 1-year deal with Bucs to reunite with Tom Brady


Antonio Brown and Tom Brady are being reunited.

The agreement seems to be a change of course for Tampa Bay head coach Bruce Arians who said after his team inked Tom Brady that a Brown acquisition "wasn't going to happen considering the Bucs' current group of wideouts.

Brown will be joining a robust group of receivers for Brady even with the absence of tight end O.J. Howard, who is out for the season with an Achilles tendon injury. Tampa Bay claims both Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, although both have battled injuries throughout the 2020 season. Scotty Miller has also been a valued target for Brady, with Rob Gronkowski seemingly emerging as more and more of a threat each week.

Brady and Brown only played in one game together with the Patriots, connecting on four passes for 56 yards and a touchdown in Miami. Before the wide receiver's release, he also reportedly spent time living at the quarterback's house.

Brown will be eligible to play Week 9, finishing of an NFL-mandated suspension.
