Antonio Brown Following Tom Brady To Buccaneers
Is Antonio Brown following Tom Brady to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? Things are trending in that direction.
On Tuesday, Brady revealed in a social media post that he was done with the New England Patriots. After two decades, he was seeking out a new situation for himself.
A short while later, multiple NFL insiders reported that the Buccaneers had emerged as a frontrunner to sign Brady. Many went as far as to call it a “done deal.”
According to NFL insider Dale Arnold, in addition to coming himself, Brady may bring a friend to Tampa Bay with him.
More on @TomBrady to @Buccaneers: I’m told @Chargers made a late and legitimate “charge” but TB12 felt TB offered a better chance to win. And don’t be surprised if Antonio Brown is involved eventually.

Brown, with whom Brady played for all of one game, somehow forged a very close relationship with the 42-year-old future Hall of Famer.
As such, both men have signaled that they would like to play together at their next locales – wherever that may be.
“Don’t be surprised if Antonio Brown is involved eventually,” Arnold said.
Seeing as the Buccaneers already have Chris Goodwin and Mike Evans, Brady could be walking into quite the stacked offensive situation if Brown really does follow him to Florida.
The Los Angeles Chargers, Miami Dolphins and Las Vegas Raiders were all said to be contenders for Brady’s services at one point in time, but apparently the Buccaneers were able to win him over for one reason or another.
A final announcement on Brady’s decision is expected to come down at some point on Wednesday. Once that happens, some clarity should emerge on Brown’s situation as well.
