The news broke Friday that Antonio Brown was going to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. On Tuesday, the Bucs made the move official.

The former member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Oakland Raiders, and New England Patriots signed a one-year deal that can reach up to $2.5 million if certain incentives are met.

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.
