Antonio Brown has an extremely tough decision to make regarding his future in the NFL, what team will he play for in 2021 and beyond. Brown is currently a free agent.
Last season, Brown signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers midway through the season where he was fairly productive. In eight games, he had 45 catches for 483 yards and four touchdowns. A major reason for his decision to join the Buccaneers was because of quarterback Tom Brady.
The former All-Pro wide receiver also joined the New England Patriots in 2019 to play with Brady. It appears that Brown loves to play with him.
Many teams are likely interested in Brown and when he gets the opportunity, he can still play at an elite level. Here are free agent destinations for Antonio Brown.
1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Why wouldn’t Brown want to run it back with the Buccaneers? He just won a Super Bowl with the team and every starter from a year ago is returning. Although the former Central Michigan star isn’t the team’s number one receiver like he is used to being, winning might matter the most to him.
Even though Brown is technically the third option on the team behind Chris Godwin and Mike Evans, he was still always involved in the game plan. He also gets to play with Brady once again for the third straight year.
It appears that Brown and Brady love to play with one another. Brady was a major reason why Tampa Bay signed him in the first place. Antonio Brown even tagged himself in a post about the Buccaneers saying sign @ab. As a result, it appears that the longtime Pittsburgh Steeler wants to play for them in 2021.
2. Green Bay Packers
Although the Buccaneers are likely where Brown winds up, the Packers are an interesting spot for him. Last season, the Packers were one team that was interested in signing the former seven-time Pro Bowler.
This signing would give Rodgers another weapon, something that the quarterback has asked for repeatedly. In the first round, the Packers decided to draft quarterback Jordan Love instead of a wide receiver. Giving Rodgers another weapon would help the Packers so much on offense and could even result in finally getting back to the Super Bowl.
This fit would also benefit Brown as he would be the second option for Rodgers. As a result, he would probably have more catches, receiving yards and touchdowns than he would on the Buccaneers. He would also play for the reigning MVP, Aaron Rodgers.
