TAMPA, Fla. — The Buccaneers have agreed to a 1-year deal with free agent receiver Antonio Brown.

Bucs’ quarterback Tom Brady has been a driving force to sign the 4-time All-Pro receiver.

Brown is suspended through Week 8 due to violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.

Brown last played during Week 2 of the 2019 season when he was with Brady and the New England Patriots.

According to ESPN, contract language still has to be finalized and Brown has to pass COVID-19 protocols before he can join the team, Brown is likely to make his Bucs debut in Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints on Nov. 8.
