“We Will Continue To Have Talks”

April 21st, 2021

Bucs GM Jason Licht

The door is still open for furniture-tossing, bicycle-throwing Antonio Brown to rejoin the Bucs.

And this comes straight from the mouth of the Bucs’ general manager, Jason Licht.

(Sorry if Joe writes about one of the best receivers of his time who caught a touchdown pass in a Bucs Super Bowl win. And was one of the most targeted receivers after he joined Tampa Bay. But this is breaking news, and yeah, the unmitigated gall of Joe to bring you breaking Bucs news as opposed to writing about some backup long-snapper pumping weights in his garage in Ohio.)

Licht was directly asked today about Brown as roughly 90 minutes before he started his Zoom meeting with the local pen and mic club, it was learned Brown had settled his pending civil assault case out of court.

“As you can tell, we put an emphasis on bringing back players, our players from last year that contributed to our success,” Licht said. “And he would be no different. We will continue to have talks and see where it goes.”

Asked about the significance of the settlement, Licht noted the Bucs signed Brown last season when that case was clearly unsettled and still pending. So that didn’t deter the Bucs from negotiating with Brown about returning for 2021.

    Sign Antonio!

  3. AlV Says:

    Rick Stroud and Dov Kleinman said they expect AB to be signed in next upcoming days.

  4. Casual Observer Says:

    A nothing report from Licht.

  5. Buc4evr Says:

    I wonder if there is something associated with the settlement that precluded AB from signing sooner. Maybe the Bucs wanted the civil suit cleared up first or maybe AB’s attorney didn’t want the plaintiff to try to go after future earnings? At any rate, let’s hope Stroud is right and AB signs soon! Based on past ME and CG injuries, 17 games with possible playoffs makes an AB signing a very smart move.

    I’m 50/50 on him.

    Sign only if an out clause in the contract, like – “If you do any AB nut-case stuff, you’re out.”

  7. Hawk Says:

    Wait! Who’s this guy pumping weights in Ohio? And can he also play linebacker?

    It sounds to me like the Bucs offer is where Licht feels comfortable & it’s no where near what AB/AB’s agent think he’s worth…Which I’m fine with.

    IMO, let the draft play out & see if a good WR /AB replacement falls in the FO’s lap….If not…Jason knows how to get ahold of AB’s agency.

  9. SOEbuc Says:

    They set a price. Take it or leave it.

  10. REDZONE BA Says:

    Puhlease — AB will resign with his preferred QB, TB12. JL is wise to hold out for the best contract $….
