Antonio Brown’s one-year deal with Tampa has a max value of $2.5 million, per source. It includes a $750,000 bonus for a Super Bowl win, and three $250,000 bonuses -- one for receptions, one for yards and one for TDs. The remaining $1 million is in base salary and roster bonuses.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 25, 2020
For now, Brown will make $1 million in base salary and roster bonuses. He can add another $750,000 to his bank account if the Bucs win the Super Bowl and another $750,000 split into three separate $250,000 incentives, as well. If Brown meets or surpasses 45 receptions, 650 yards, and six touchdowns in the regular season, he’ll get paid $250,000 for each stat line.
But there’s a catch to the latter incentives: The Bucs have to make the playoffs in order for Brown to receive any compensation for his stats.
He still can’t practice with the team until after Week 8 when the suspension ends, but if all goes well COVID-wise, the Brown will be able to join team meetings and work with strength coaches by Wednesday. The expectation is that he’ll be ready to suit up in Week 9 when the Bucs take on the Saints.
