Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Buccaneers) agreed to a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Wednesday, April 28. The deal guarantees him $3.1 million, and he can earn a total of $6.25 million.
Huddle Up: AB flashed at least WR2 prowess in fantasy last year. However, there might not be enough balls to go around for him, Mike Evans and Chris Godwin for the latter two to be WR1s, and AB a WR2. This situation will be a weekly crapshoot again next year, but he has plenty of value.

Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Buccaneers) remains unsigned, but Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht told reporters Wednesday, April 21, that the two sides have 'had discussions throughout the offseason.'
Huddle Up: Brown reportedly has reportedly settled his legal issues, so there is nothing holding teams back from signing him in theory - assuming they are willing to overlook several years' worth of questionable behavior on or near the field. Tampa Bay has made it a priority to bring back the core of last year's championship team, so there is a chance of a reunion. With that said, Licht's comments suggest the team is in no hurry to make it happen.

Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Buccaneers) appears to be no closer to re-signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers than he was when free agency began about a month ago, according to Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times.
Huddle Up: Tampa Bay seems to be holding firm on its reported offer from last month for around $2 million, while Brown is reportedly seeking considerably more. It's beginning to look at this point like Brown will have to swallow his pride if he wants to play in 2021.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent WR Antonio Brown ranked seventh in receptions and was tied for second with four receiving touchdowns over the final four weeks of 2020.
Huddle Up: Brown's numbers were partly inflated by his big performance in Week 17, but his chemistry with Tom Brady was undeniable. Brown's future is unclear, but if he returns to Tampa Bay and Chris Godwin signs elsewhere, Brown would quickly become a valuable fantasy asset.

Huddle Up: Brown has three catches for 59 yards and a touchdown in two games this postseason, but with all the firepower that both sides have at receiver and tight end, Brown is only a worth a flier as a big play-dependent fantasy lottery ticket.
