Shark Bites

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (knee) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. It's an upgrade after he sat out all week leading up to the NFC Championship. Brown is seemingly on track to return for Sunday's Super Bowl.

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.

The Buccaneers have ruled WR Antonio Brown out for Sunday's NFC Championship game, HC Bruce Arians announced Friday. That leaves room for WRs Tyler Johnson and Scotty Miller to gain snaps against the Packers. Johnson led Miller in last Sunday's win over the Saints -- but by a mere 7 snaps (15-8). Brown's absence could also leave a few more snaps for TE Cameron Brate. Tampa's #2 TE has seen 2 of his 4 largest target totals for the year over the past 2 weeks. Brate, Johnson and Miller all stand as cheap DFS flyers for the weekend. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin also get a slight bump in target floor with the clear #3 WR out.
