Tampa Bay Buccaneers Don’t Want Antonio Brown
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers don’t want Antonio Brown to sign with the team this offseason, it appears.
On Tuesday morning, Tom Brady announced that he was leaving the New England Patriots this summer. That same day word leaked out that he would be taking his talents to Tampa Bay.
Almost immediately, people began wondering if the close-knit relationship developed between Brady and Brown last year during their one game together with the Patriots would lead to a Buccaneers reunion.
While Brady is very fond of Brown, Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians is not. He worked with Brown back when he was the offensive coordinator with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the pair’s relationship did not go well.

According to Pittsburgh Post-Gazette NFL insider Gerry Dulac, a source told him that Brown to Tampa Bay “ain’t happening.” Moreover, last year Arians referred to Brown as a “diva,” which the polarizing wide receiver did not appreciate.
While Brady would probably love to play with Brown at some point in the future, Tampa Bay has enough talent at wide receiver to where he likely will not miss his friend too much.
