Chucky Adds Antonio Brown

March 10th, 2019

Of course, Joe remains curious and somewhat fascinated by how the Bucs’ Super Bowl winning head coach is building his Raiders team.

Another big move by Chucky was struck last night as NFL Network reports all-World quitter receiver Antonio Brown will go to the Raiders in exchange for third- and fifth-round picks. Not a bad addition to an offense that saw quarterback Derek Carr throw for more than 4,000 yards last season,the first time in his career.

Brown will be complemented by wide receiver Jordy Nelson and a Pro Bowl tight end in Jared Cook. Man, Chucky sure loves players over 30. What next, Marshawn Lynch and Doug Martin coming back to run the football?

Chucky has made eye-popping, blockbuster trades since taking over last year. And now he’s decided to pay a nearly 31-year-old receiver insane money rather than paying a young, All-Pro pass rusher, Khalil Mack.

Still, Chucky found a way to be sitting with a three first-round picks this year and a mountain of salary cap room. Now he just has to make good personnel decisions, which was his downfall in Tampa.

    Keyshawn 2.0

  2. Pickgrin Says:

    How does paying the best receiver in the NFL $16.7M qualify as “insane money”?

    You do realize that Mike Evans is making $20M this year – yes?

  3. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Probably a good move for the Raiders if AB’s willing to work hard. I’m still not convinced that Chucky may not be in the QB market too. Carr is a very good young QB…completed nearly 70% of his passes last season and has lifetime 122/54 TD/INT numbers…but something tells me Gruden might want his “own guy” and draft a Drew Lock or Daniel Jones too.

    So a Diva adds a Diva……………………….great!

  5. Todd Says:

    Queue MeSean the Malcontent Jackson to bitch about being underpaid.

  6. BrianBucs Says:

    So Gruden acquires the best reciever in the NFL and keeps his 3 1st round picks. And, has a large amount of cap space to build his team.
    I sure do hope that Jason Licht is watching.

  7. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Pickgrin, Brown is not the best WR in football.

    Also, Mike Evans is younger and has more in him. Gruden is making nothing but mistakes.

  8. Not there yet Says:

    Jordy Nelson won’t be the starter, Chucky will put D. K. Metcalf on the other side of AB and draft his running back. Oh wait it’s Chucky we’re talking about, he’ll draft the worst receiver in the draft by second pick.

  9. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    BrianBucs, Gruden has completely dismantled his team, getting rid of their best players. Now he is overpaying for replacements. Every elite player he got rid of has to be replaced, and there is no chance they will be as good as the people he got rid of.

    Gruden is making splash moves to impress fans, but in the end that team is toast this year.

  10. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    @ BrianBucs

    You obviously weren’t around much or paid much attention to when Chucky when chucky was here.

    This is Classic Chucky-ism…………….which translates to Bullsheit!!!!!

    Once Antonio starts pulling his Diva act…………chucky will treat him like Keyshawn…………….and BOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MO DRAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’m so glad chucky isn’t here

  11. Leighroy Says:

    Meshawn Johnson definitely a good comparison. But I like to think Gruden got his Joey Galloway “the White tiger” 2.0

  12. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Jeagan1999, Gruden doesn’t draft QBs, he signs veteran QBs.

    Drafting one means committing to one, and Jon only likes to date them…not marry them.

  13. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    All true bucs fans who loved this team back to the hardy nickerson days couild smell the stench from Red-Tide Chucky all the way across the bay from St Pete to North Tampa……………

    ………….They could smell this team being ripped apart by Chucky and His goon of a GM Bruce Allen…………..classic azz clowns!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Kobe Faker Says:

    “Lol the Buc Sheep and the Gump apolists..

    Grudog had a plan and he knew he needed top picks and tank the 1st year

    4 picks in the top 35

    Grudog didnt comeback without a plan and learning from his mistakes

    Grudog will win 2 superbowls during his 10 year contract

    Atleast we have Gump”

  15. First Down Tampa Bay Says:

    Something about Gruden and diva receivers…

  16. Bird Says:


    That is your opinion only. Mike Evans recently tweeted AB was the best receiver in the nfl. If you took a poll from coaches , players and football watchers…AB would get almost 50 percent of the votes for best receiver in nfl

    Julio is freak but always injured. Has virtually not tds last year. He would get some votes.
    Obj also injured and cares more about his pretty hair. He would get some votes
    Mike Evans would get none outside a few buc fans cause he is on sorry bucs
    Hopkins would get a few in Texas market

  17. BrianBucs Says:

    To all of you armchair GM’s, just watch. Gruden is building the team that HE wants and will have his team in the Superbowl long before our Bucs even sniff at it. Just watch …….

  18. Easy Says:

    Mayock is already making an impression as a GM. Lands an all pro receiver and still keeps his 3 first round picks? I’m curious how their draft plays out with Gruden and Mayock. Helluva steal for a top 5 WR and only give up a 3rd and 5th round pick.

  19. ben Says:

    I was here .. Gruden best bucs coach ever unless winning and being talked about nationally is not your style.

  20. Bird Says:

    Antonio Brown over the last 5 years average :

    Around 115 catches per year.
    Around 1,500 yards receiving per year.
    Around 12 tds per year.

    And he gets doubles regularly. I would say he is best in game.

  21. newsandwich Says:

    AB=Mental Patient

    I’ll PASS! The Raiders can have that freak.

  22. Kobe Faker Says:

    “The last 6 year average production of AB,

    Only 6 players in the history of the NFL had similar numbers just ONE year…

    Put MEME Evans Nd Mejax together and AB is better”

    Kobe Faker

  23. JGhoti86 Says:

    Should be all good from the Raider’s perspective…as long as they don’t have Joey Galloway, because Gruden wouldn’t know how to get both on the field at the same time!

  24. JGhoti86 Says:

    Raiders’ ** perspective

  25. tmaxcon Says:

    you idiots bad mouthing ab are clueless… bucs have not had a winner on this roster since the day sapp walked out the door. you fools are terrified of new players, personalities and talent…. y like mentioned above ab and raiders will sniff the playoffs way before this minor league franchise ever does.. bucs might never see another payoff appearance before the league has to contract. obviously the small market bucs are the first team out the door bucs would have been gone years ago if it was not for the leagues charity system aka revenue sharing…

    btw, you do realize that AB has the same number of playoff wins as those underachieving has beens you nut jobs call legends

  26. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Bonzai….I know Chucky has an affinity for the veteran QB’s….don’t disagree with you there. Just a hunch I have that Jones or Lock might be in his plans somewhere. I just don’t get the feeling that Carr is his “guy”.

    But your point is well taken.

  27. Stu Says:

    LeVeon Bell, come on down your the next contestant on the Raiders free for all..

  28. Loyaltotheend Says:

    Gruden is gonna draft 3 1st round bust

    And if you think otherwise you didn’t pay attention to his drafts here

  29. Buc1987 Says:

    tmaxcon…I’m a BIG Gruden fan, but I don’t think he’ll succeed in Raiderland. I think the Raiders owner is a “nut job”.

    Thanks for reminding us again though of just how big of Bucs fan you are.

  30. Alanbucsfan Says:

    Betcha they will restructure Evans contract and result will be $8 million more cap room

  31. Kyle Says:

    gruden needed a competent gm to help him while he was in tampa. How many nfc east titles has bruce allen won since going to washington? everyone puts it on gruden..i think mayock is a talent evaluator, thats what gruden needed here.

  32. Joeypoppems Says:

    So he basically traded Cooper + a 3rd + a 5th for AB and a 1st. It looks good on paper but Idk, I just have a feeling it wont work out that great. Idk if its just because I doubt Carr. The drama is far from over lol.

  33. Joeypoppems Says:

    And just to throw my opinion out there because its a fun debate…

    The player with the title “Best WR in the NFL” currently plays in Houston

  34. Nate Says:

    @ Joe

    He just has to make good personnel decisions…..RE….Well he has at the least very knowledgeable beloved talent evaluator as GM Mike Mayock…..

    Kinda why I wanted a second Gruden marriage in Tampa

  35. Rod Munch Says:

    LOL! This is literally what Gruden did in Tampa – except here he was handed a SB winning team by Dungy and McKay and the moron took it apart to sign an old Charlie Garner to a big deal, every injured mid-30s offensive lineman he could fine, and even older guys like Tim Brown.

    The difference was Gruden destroyed the defense by dumping Lynch and letting Sapp walk so he could sign those guys – in Oakland, yeah he traded away Mack, but he actually got something out of it and it’s not like Oakland was a SB winning team.

    Anywho I fully expect Gruden to bring in Andre Rison for a look, maybe bring back Tim Brown for one last ride as well.

  36. Rod Munch Says:

    Joeypoppems – You’d be incorrect, and while I really really like Hopkins the best WR is Julio.

  37. Arian Nation Says:


  38. Darin Says:

    Cook’s a free agent Joe. Unless they resigned him this week. He is exoected to leave. Not yet. –Joe
    Go to the clinic this week.

  39. Nate Says:

    @ Rod Munch & his long rebuttal lol

    I dont think you get mayock if you dont learn from your mistakes ..I’m a buc fan 1st but regardless the man created a offense where when we had the best one with Dungy…..

    Him n les steckel couldn’t coexist…..

    You better hope he doesn’t draft Dewayne Haskins and he turns out better than jameis….good ole boy show out cause you got one year

    Please don’t make us be in play for tua2020

  40. Nate Says:

    Or do lol

  41. Nate Says:

    Nah really though lol haskins going before 5 gives us 1) Williams 2) Allen 3) Oliver …that is lights draft order …you draft best avail when in the top 5…that’s a game changing player / elite

  42. tmaxcon Says:

    Rod Munch

    If Gruden was handed a super bowl ready team why couldn’t dungy the one dimensional clown and McKay win with them????

    2 play off wins is laughable not legendary!!!!

  43. Rod Munch Says:

    Nate – Long response? That’s one of my shorter responses, they’re generally like 8x longer than that.

    Anywho what I said was that in Tampa he destroyed the SB team he was handed by Dungy and McKay, to rebuild it in his image, meaning old broken down players. But in Oakland it’s not like he’s taking over a SB team with the best defense in the history of football and destroying it to sign Charlie Garner and Todd Steussie and Derrick Deese.

    Giving up a 3rd and a 5th, for one of the top WR’s in the game, when you have a ton of picks is a good thing and gives them the chance to see if Carr is a complete waste of cap space or not.

  44. Bucsdelight Says:

    As others have said, I was disgusted by what Chucky was doing to the Raiders. Got rid of Mack, WTF? Who does that, then I started to watch and realized what he was doing. He isn’t looking to rebuild a team around one player. He got rid of some good players so he could get tons of draft picks and go to town. He is looking to win now and that’s how you win. He can go get whomever he wants in the draft. There are some strong D players in this draft and if he hits on them, he’ll look like a freaking miracle worker. If he misses on all of them, well, he may not be there long. Right now, he has played his cards right and looks set to make the Raiders better than they are.
