Tampa Bay Buccaneers offer to Antonio Brown may just be a ‘prove it’ deal

Over the course of the end of the week, Tampa Bay Buccaneers free agent wide receiver Antonio Brown said he and Leonard Fournette will work things out with Tampa Bay. However, we know how NFL offseasons go for NFL players — the additional time they go unsigned, the additional time they need to negotiate better deals or they get an even lower offer than what they were anticipating.

For Brown, it very well may be that what he is hearing from the Bucs isn’t exactly what he wants.

Showing up on the Pat McAfee show, NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport feels what the Buccaneers are offering Brown is a demonstrate it type deal laden with incentive.

Part of the expected impasse between the Buccaneers and Brown is the way that Seattle is included somewhat. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been allegedly campaigning for the veteran receiver to be signed so he can have another objective to throw to.

Concerning the circumstance between Tampa Bay and Brown, Bucs players, coaches, and front office are generally on record saying that the veteran receiver fundamentally surpassed expectations in 2020. That basically plays in the hands of Brown wanting something beyond a demonstrate it deal.
