But can he be a team-first guy?

The Buccaneers sent a shockwave throughout the NFL world when they signed wide receiver Antonio Brown. While it was a headscratcher for most, many others felt it was a good move.

The latter applies to SB Nation readers.

In this week’s SB Nation Reacts poll, fans were asked which of the four names in the graph below would make the biggest difference for their new teams. The majority, exactly 38-percent of fans, feel that Brown is that guy.

It would be difficult to assess exactly where Brown is or will be. Considering he’s been out of football for quite some time, Tampa Bay feels good with their latest addition and offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich says his newest offensive weapon is ready to go.

“I think I’ve got a good idea of what he’d be able to do Sunday night,” Leftwich said. “He’s always in the best shape, so you’re never really worried about that. Obviously, he has to do some things to get in football shape – ball-security-type things – those are the type of things you’re always worried about. But, he’s in shape [and] he’s conditioned. I can talk to him in a way to get him to understand, to make sure that he’s ready to roll and to understand what he needs to do so he can play fast. I feel good about where he’s at. I don’t really know how much he’ll play, but I feel good where he’s at.”

We’ll have to wait and see just how much of a difference Brown will be, and when that difference will start.
