After an extremely tumultuous 2019 season that saw him traded, signed, let go, signed and let go again among legal and behavioral issue, Brown signed with the Buccaneers in 2020. Tom Brady reportedly specifically requested he join the team.
In eight games played last year, he collected 45 passes for 483 yards and four touchdowns. He also added eight catches for 81 yards and two touchdowns in the playoffs, including one in the Super Bowl, which Tampa Bay would go on to win.
