The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are arguably the most loaded offense in football. Their offensive core includes Tom Brady, Chris Godwin, Ronald Jones, Leonard Fournette, LeSean McCoy, Mike Evans, Rob Gronkowski and now they have added Antonio Brown. This is to coincide with one of the league’s top defenses.
This is certainly a fascinating move. Brown’s drama history is certainly well-documented and Bruce Arians said in March that he’d never ink him as he isn’t a fit for their culture. Now, Tom Brady has reportedly gone to bat for Brown and he has inked a deal with the Bucs. He was suspended for the first eight weeks of the season and will suit up for the first time on November eighth. He will likely take Tyler Johnson’s place on the offense. The 32 year old is a 7x Pro Bowl.
The Bucs continue to put together a super-team, in hopes to become the third major sport to reach the Championship Game in Tampa in a calendar year. The Lightning have already defeated the Dallas Stars for the Stanley Cup while the Rays play the Dodgers in Game 3 of the World Series tonight. Charlie Morton will take the mound for the Rays against Walker Buehler.
