According to multiple reports, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed wide receiver Antonio Brown to a one-year contract pending physicals and COVID testing. Adam Schefter of ESPN was first to report the signing.
Brown was suspended for eight games without pay in July because of multiple violations of the NFL's personal conduct policy. Brown is eligible to come off his suspension after Week 8 after Brown was directed to continue counseling and treatment. The league also said that any further violations probably would result in harsher discipline.
The 32 year old wideout had been the subject of an NFL investigation following an accusation of sexual misconduct at his home by an artist who was working there in 2017. He also pleaded no contest in June to a felony burglary with battery charge and two lesser misdemeanor charges related to a January incident with a moving truck company outside his home in Hollywood, Florida.
