TAMPA, Fla. — Tom Brady is a big advocate for troubled but talented former Steelers receiver Antonio Brown, and the quarterback certainly enjoyed the one game they played together in Week 2 last season for the Patriots.
Having been released by the Raiders on Sept. 7 due to his antics, Brown signed with New England on the same day, then caught four passes for 56 yards and a touchdown in a 43-0 win over Miami before more off-field problems prompted the Patriots to release him.
There had been speculation that Brown might join Brady with the Buccaneers. On Wednesday, Brown was asked on Instagram if he would sign with Tampa Bay, and he gave a one-word response: “expeditiously.”
