Buccaneers Sign WR Antonio Brown To One-Year Deal Worth Up To $2.5M


According to Adam Schefter, Antonio Brown’s one-year deal with the Buccaneers is worth up to $2.5 million and 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 Browns remaining $1 million is from base salary and roster bonuses.

Schefter says this contract is expected to be official on Monday.

Adam Schefter reports that Antonio Brown and the Buccaneers have reached an agreement on a one-year deal.

Wilson says both sides are “highly motivated” to get a deal done.

Adam Schefter confirms the news and says Brown and the Buccaneers are working towards an agreement and want to get it done. 

According to Schefter, the Seahawks are still in the mix to sign Brown but the Buccaneers have emerged as the favorites. 

Schefter adds that Tom Brady has been a driving force behind Tampa’s interest. 

Brown had previously made it clear that he wanted to be paired up with Brady in Tampa Bay. However, Bucs HC Bruce Arians consistently downplayed the idea during the offseason. 

The Buccaneers have two top receivers in Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. However, both have dealt with injuries and Brady has been a big supporter of Brown since their time together in New England. 

Brown, 31, is a former sixth-round pick of the Steelers back in 2010. He was in the third year of his five-year, $72.71 million contract when the Steelers traded him to the Raiders back in March. 

The Raiders later signed Brown to a new contract worth $50.125 million and includes $30.125 million guaranteed. However, Oakland made the decision to release Brown before the start of the season and he later signed a one-year deal worth up to $15 million with the Patriots.

Brown lasted just 11 days in New England.  

In 2019, Brown appeared in one game for the Patriots and caught four passes for 56 yards receiving and one touchdown.
