Bucs WR Antonio Brown's knee injury is not considered serious, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Brown is considered "day-to-day" and seemingly has a shot to play vs. the Packers on Sunday. We'll keep a close eye on him this week.
The Bucs and WR Antonio Brown have agreed to a 1-year contract with $3.1 million guaranteed and upside to $6.25 million, according to NFL Network. This deal took a bit longer than expected to get done, but Brown was always expected back in Tampa. He posted a 45-483-4 line in 8 games with the Bucs last season, ranking 21st among WRs in PPR points over that span. Volume is still a bit of a concern here, though, with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Rob Gronkowski also back for 2021.
Bucs WR Antonio Brown (knee) is active for the Super Bowl. He got in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so he should be close to 100%.
Bucs WR Antonio Brown (knee) is listed as questionable for the Super Bowl. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so it'd be a surprise if he doesn't play. Brown has averaged 7.2 targets, 5.2 catches and 59 yards in 9 healthy games with the Bucs. But he's played fewer than 50% of the snaps in 3 of the last 5 as Tampa has deployed more 2-TE sets. That could change on Sunday if TE Cameron Brate (back) is unable to play.
Bucs WR Antonio Brown (knee) was upgraded to a full participant in Thursday's practice. He's set to play in the Super Bowl. Brown's playing time was on the decline even before his injury as Tampa moved to more 2-TE sets. We're expecting a similar game plan on Sunday.
