The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed former Pittsburgh Steelers star wide receiver Antonio Brown to a one year deal over the weekend. As it goes with all new players, a jersey number is assigned or picked. In the case of Brown, Greg Auman of the Athletic had the news on the new number:

Brown signed a one year “prove it” deal with Tampa Bay that is littered with performance incentives. With some lingering issues to Mike Evans and now with Chris Godwin having an injuries finger, Brown could add some depth where needed. The Buccaneers’ offense is clicking at the right time and the addition of Brown seems to be a fit, at the moment.
