Bucs Re-sign Antonio Brown To One-Year Deal


We’ve been wondering when the Bucs will re-sign former All-Pro receiver Antonio Brown. Per The NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, both sides reached an agreement Wednesday morning. Apparently, Tom Brady had a lot to do with the re-signing, as well.

Brown’s one-year deal is worth up to $6.25 million, with $3.1 million guaranteed and a $2 million signing bonus, per his agent. It’s a nice raise from his 2020 salary. It’s also nice to know that the two sides were able to come to a deal after reportedly squabbling over contract details.

The Bucs decision to re-sign Antonio Brown couldn’t have come at a better time and now, what they do in the 2021 NFL Draft is anyone’s guess.


Per The NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, there was an unnamed team that was interested in Brown, so it looks like the Bucs were the chosen suitor, yet again. Per The Athletic’s Greg Auman, the Bucs had around $1 million in cap space before Brown’s return, but that number is now around $2 million over the cap for the Bucs.

Tampa Bay will have to consider making some type of move with a player -or players- on its roster. Whether it be an extension, restructure, trade, or release – there’s no doubt the Bucs will have to do something to a) get back under the cap and b) have enough money to sign the draft class.
