TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — It’s official – wide receiver Antonio Brown will be back on the field for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the upcoming NFL season.

The Bucs announced Tuesday Brown had officially re-signed with the team. Brown joined Tampa Bay in October of 2020 and made appearance in eight regular season games last season, including four starts. He recorded 45 receptions for 483 yards and four touchdowns.

Brown also played in three post-season games, including Super Bowl LV when he caught a touchdown pass from quarterback Tom Brady in the first half.
