Antonio Brown Returns To Bucs For 2021
Former Central Michigan star and All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown (pictured) has re-signed with the World Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to his agent.
He gets a one-year deal worth a max of $6.25 million with just over $3 million guaranteed. Brown joined the Bucs last season and caught a touchdown pass in the Super Bowl LV victory over Kansas City this past February.
AB was drafted out of Central Michigan by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2010. And he starred there for nine years before contract and personal problems hastened his exit from the Steel City.
He was with the then-Oakland Raiders in 2019 but was released in camp due to continuing personal and legal issues. He played one game for the New England Patriots that season before being released. He signed with Tampa Bay during the 2020 season and won a Super Bowl ring this February.
He is a seven-time Pro Bowler and has led the NFL in receptions for a season twice. He played at Central Michigan from 2007-09, where he was an All-American kick returner. He is CMU's all-time leader in career receptions with 305.
