What Can’t Brown Do For Bucs

March 18th, 2020


There has been a rumor floating around fueled by a couple of football media types outside of Tampa Bay that a certain wide receiver was going to join Tom Brady when he comes to Tampa Bay.

That would be Brady’s good friend, whack job yet super talented wide receiver Antonio Brown. The two are tight and there was speculation that part of the deal to sign Brady is for Brady to bring Brown with him.

Per FOX Sports NFL insider Jay Glazer said this morning that’s not happening.

So there you have it. No Brown to the Bucs.

Frankly, Joe didn’t understand this rumor. It’s not like the Bucs need a receiver. And it is not like Bucco Bruce Arians needs a headache like Brown — the two know each other from their Pittsburgh days.

If the Bucs need a receiver this bad they can keep Breshad Perriman for a whole lot less than it would cost to babysit Brown.

    But if Brady wants him, Brady will get him.

  2. Go Bucs 72 Says:

    AB is straight up crazy.

  3. BamaRich Says:

    Morgus, I vehemently agree

  4. mike10 Says:

    Hard pass.

    I wan’t a championship, not a media circus. AB is a 🤡 show

  5. Craig Says:

    The Patriots fell on the team spirit score last year, badly. They needed some stimulus to get up for games, hence Brown was added to the mix.

    He would be in the way here, so no one, except Jay Glazer, sees this as anything close to reality. He would just make waves here, if he was even allowed to join in the reindeer games.

  6. 813bucboi Says:

    i agree….

    we dont need AB since we have 2 elite WRs and 2 very good TEs….if we need more weapons bring perriman back or just continue to develop miller and watson….

    i think we have the leadership inthe locker room to control AB with JPP, SUH and brady…..

    but didnt AB and BA get into it last offseason?….didnt BA say AB isnt the same person he was when they were together in PITTS and AB responded by basically saying F U old man?…..

    rather sign leonard floyd or linval joseph for depth along the d-line….

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  7. Bucsdelight Says:

    He’d be the best WR3 in the league.

  8. Robert Says:

    “they can keep Breshad Perriman for a whole lot less than it would cost to babysit Brown”

    and they can trade ME, get picks and beef up the Trenches!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. JustBucNwin Says:

    No No No!!!!

  10. Buc50 Says:

    Brady didn’t come here for us to get crazy and trade ME for a bunch of linemen. SMFH…crazy talk

  11. BucfaninMi Says:

    Keep Periman! Brown’s a head case.

  12. Waterboy Says:

    No need to bring a cancer into the locker room. The bucs have 2 pro bowl WR’s and a WR heavy draft class.

  13. StonedBuc Says:

    So what if godwin is traded for the number… Orrrr brown just takes peanuts to play?

  14. lowercaseg Says:

    He’s crazy and i’m worried he’d destroy the locker room. But intrigued with the offensive possibilities

  15. Bobby Says:

    Robert…why would you trade ME?? Are you freakin’ crazy??! Yeah, let’s bring in Brady and then take away a top weapon to make him successful. SMH….

  16. Joeypoppems Says:

    Yea this is would have been just a bad idea. Imo, a logical signing is Phillip Dorsett as WR3. Cheaper than Perriman and familiar with Brady. Dion Lewis also makes sense for RB depth. Still think they should draft a RB on Day 2 even if they were to sign Lewis. OT in Round 1.

  17. MadMax Says:

    Yeah, thats a BIG NO…..Glazers aint having any part of that ish! Nor BA!

  18. 813bucboi Says:

    the main reason why brady came to tampa is because of the weapons…lol…we aint trading ME13….

    do you the type of hell that would bring?

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  19. MadMax Says:

    AB needs to crash and burn….sorry to say that but he needs a wake up!

  20. Robert Says:

    You would trade ME, because he costs 18 million! and Brady will make Perriman a star, not to mention the TE’s we have. Brady does it every year with no name WR’s. There’s only so many balls to go around and our TE’s will be getting a LOT more balls!

    Why not leverage a guy in his prime to strengthen the whole team?

    It’s what Bilichcheat would do!

  21. Robert Says:

    yeah, you all said I was crazy a month ago when I said Brady was coming. that’s all for now…..

  22. Pa Privateer Says:

    don’t need him at all

  23. Marine Buc Says:

    Brown is definitely a head case – however – he is also still one of the best receivers (top 10) in the league. If he came here I would have faith in both BA and Tom Brady. If Brown will sign a cheap team friendly one year deal with behavioral incentives in his contract I would be down with Brown.

    Can you imagine Evans, Godwin, Brown, Brate and Howard as weapons for Tom Brady? Holy schnickies!!!!!

  24. Lamarcus Says:

    It’s not up to us. Its Brady decision. we can go back and forth and it won’t matter. If Brady say so then its happening. It’s not even up to Arians or Licht. We are all depending on Brady

  25. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Tom mentioned Antonio Brown to other teams because those teams lacked weapons. We don’t.

  26. ItzOK Says:

    Itz crazy to think about adding a talent like Brown. I personally don’t want the headcase However didn’t BA coach him in Pittsburgh? If Brady wants another weapon then why not. If the bucs lose Perriman then they will have to sign another receiver just as a backup. America is about second chances. Give AB a short leash if he even looks sideways you can just cut him. But go for the jugular and get as much talent as you can

  27. Bucsdelight Says:

    AB doesn’t add anything to the team. So why get him? Because he is cheap? Stop. And when he goes mental again and gets cut part way through the season, we now have wasted our time, when we could have kept ME and been golden from the start.

  28. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    JOE says:
    “So there you have it. No Brown to the Bucs.”


    Thank goodness.
    We don’t need him!

  29. SC Bucs Fan Says:

    Well without JW this team is woefully under stocked in sex offenders

  30. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    The absolute last thing we need is to spend money or a high draft pick on a WR…..we need RT, RB, S, Dline……

  31. Dusty Says:

    How about bringing in Julian Edelman as Our number 3? That’s not out range of possibility!

  32. Cobraboy Says:

    Brady wanted Brown in NE because his receivers were sub-optimal.

    That is not the case with the Bucs.

    I’d like to see Perriman work a deal to stay in Tampa.

  33. Marine Buc Says:

    @ bucsdelight

    “Brown doesn’t add anything to the team”


  34. Bucsdelight Says:

    If the Bucs go after Gurley, they might try for a package deal with Gurley and Cooks. Yet, Melvin Gordon is still available, so no need really to go after them.

  35. Ed Kerber Says:

    If AB comes cheaply, bring him to the party. IF AB acts up…send him home from the party. I have no problem bringing in a controlled and contrite AB. If he is outta control, cut him immediately. I’d like to see Mike Glennon as a back QB with those weapons.

  36. J Says:

    Alot of folks gifted Brady to the Bucs before you THINK you did robert. ME is going no where, you’re an idiot. TB is coming because of the arsenal, not to make that arsenal weaker dumba$$!

  37. Robert Says:

    @ J

    you mad bro?

    go follow crabman as a starter on another team…..oh wait!


  38. jmarkbuc Says:


    That dude isn’t long for this league, he’s not physically right. I’m sure McVay and the Rams would love to off load his salary on some fool. Don’t let it be us. We’re already taking a big enough chance on TB12..let’s not get stooopid.

  39. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    ^^ I could not agree MORE, jmarkbuc. I would be really scared to do anything with Gurley. I feel bad for the guy, but I just don’t think he is ever going to be the same. The Rams would be thrilled to unload that salary.

  40. Bucsdelight Says:

    Sure if you can get AB cheap, he’d be a great WR3, but he doesn’t add much to the team. We already have 2 super stars, adding a head case for a 3rd will give Defenses fits, but let’s not get too crazy here.

  41. reply Says:

    Wow………….REALLY this clown again?!

  42. SOEbuc Says:

    LMAO!!! We already have the younger (and cheaper at the moment) best two WR duo in the NFL. Major props for Brown’s play over time but Evans and Godwin are much more professional when it comes to the business side.

  43. Blogtalkfootball.com Says:

    After a couple of practice sessions with Evans, Godwin, Howard and Scotty Miller, Brady will say, “AB who?”

  44. 813bucboi Says:


    you’re such a fleabag!!!!!!!

    JW is gone!!!..get over it!!!…stop crying!!!

    JW IS A BUST!!!!!

  45. Slugglife Says:

    Keep Perriman. All day.

  46. Slugglife go straight to moderation Says:


  47. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    813bucboi Says:


    LOL, now there is a word I have not heard in a long time, 813!

  48. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    Slugglife Says:
    “Keep Perriman. All day.”


    I would love to see it. Not sure what his price is.

  49. Dewey Selmon Says:

    The replies are on par with what other teams board sound like when someone suggests signing Winston.

  50. Rod Munch Says:

    The Bucs have nothing but trash past Evans and Godwin – saying no to anyone is dumb. If Brady wants him, you sign him. In any case the Bucs need a legit 3rd WR, and a legit 4th WR. Last year we saw what happened when Evans and Godwin both went down. Perriman stepped up, but teams quickly figured out you just double him and there wasn’t anyone else to throw to in this offense that doesn’t use the TE.

    The biggest thing that should help the offense with WR depth is actually using the TE’s as more than blockers. I can’t imagine that Arians doesn’t finally make some adjustments here. You don’t sign Tom Brady and then tell Brate he’s an in-line blocker 90% of the time.

  51. Jonathan Limpchimpi Says:

    Arguably the best PLAYER in the NFL for a short time. Watch Hard Knocks from last year. He truly ( and sadly ) has a mental illness. He would be jealous of Evans and Godwin…it simply wouldn’t work. Not sure Arians is a big fan anyhow. BA showed me a ton through the Brady process…I was beginning to doubt him. He backed up his talk about Brady and delivered.

  52. Tbbucs3 Says:

    This is stupid, wait until even the slightest thing goes wrong and ABs head will explode.

    Learn from Swaggy and Djax Licht.

  53. Marine Buc Says:


    I disagree. It’s all about risk vs. reward. Given a small team friendly incentive laden deal AB will be worth the risk. Having the greatest wide receiver trio in NFL history would be TOTALLY a worth the risk.

  54. stpetebucsfan Says:

    This franchise has been a total soap opera now for the past five years and really before that.

    I’m tired of it. AB is NOT welcome here and he couldn’t really help. We have two pro bowl receivers who somehow missed out when they sent all WR’s to prima donna school. These two celebrated each other’s success. Why would you wreck that?

    As for Brady’s control…there is a HUGE difference in absolute control and having input into offensive decisions. Belicheat is a jerk and he absolutely dissed Brady.

    I went to the Boston Globe this morning and they are blaming Belicheat and secondarily Kraft for not stepping in.

    Granting someone significant input when they have Bradys two decades of experience is only wise.

    Some of this gets down to simple personality. Arians is a LOT easier to work with than BB. He demands accountability but he can also joke when it’s appropriate.

    Imagine this…if Trump was a football coach he would tell Brady to pound salt much like BB because only HE could figure stuff out.

    If Obama was coach he’d be confident enough to add the right QB with the proper experience to his decision making team along with BL and any other experts on his staff.

  55. Tbbucs3 Says:

    ^ No Way MarineBuc. Sounds good on paper but this is absolutely not worth it for an already fragile culture to bring ABs toxic mentally for him to have a bad influence on our younger players.

    THE Bucs already have a top 5 WR core you do not need to pay a premium price in a position where were already set.

    Use that money to spend on actual areas of need like Defensive Backs.

    Can’t believe people are actually considering this especially after all the culture talk that has plauged the Bucs for years now. Don’t need idiots like Antonio Brown on this team.

  56. Admiral Redbeard Says:

    He’s proven to be a total headcase and trouble for the last three teams, 3 teams, THREE F’N TEAMS IN A ROW!, he’s been a part of, so why is this even a subject? Besides, we don’t need him. We already have (most likely) the best receiving corps in the NFL, so why mess with it.

  57. Ghettos of Siberia Says:

    Really??? You bring Obama & Trump into this mild banter…

  58. MTM Says:

    AB has no market value a this time. No coach wants to deal with his crazy ass. He’s a locker room cancer.

  59. Delusional Intelligence Says:

    Well this is certainly puzzling, I thought all Joe cared about was production.
