Well, the rumors appear to be true. And it may happen as early as nest week.

Veteran wide receiver Antonio Brown is reportedly set to sign with the Buccaneers and join quarterback Tom Brady in Tampa Bay. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is reporting the following Friday evening.

This will certainly come with mixed reviews, but if anyone can make sure the locker room doesn’t crumble, head coach Bruce Arians is that guy.

Brown made himself a household name during his career as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers. His disgruntled departure from Pittsburgh in 2019 landed him with the Patriots and Brady for one game last season.

In his career, Brown has caught 841 receptions for 11,263 yards and 75 touchdowns.

UPDATE:

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting both sides have reached an agreement on a one-year deal.
