Will Antonio Brown Move In With Tom Brady In Tampa?

It’s reality check time. So when you are arguably the best wide receiver in the game since Jerry Rice, I guess it doesn’t matter how many off the field issues you have because talent appears to once again out trump all other things.

Now I know that we are living in the upside-down world of 2020, but watching Antonio Brown get yet another chance in the NFL to play with Tom Brady seems as farfetched as a reality TV star becoming President of the United States.

The real question is did Brady offer Brown a place to stay in Tampa? If you remember before last years Patriots’ thrashing of the Pittsburgh Steelers on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” Al Michaels revealed that Tom Brady was so excited about New England signing Brown that he actually invited the star wide receiver to stay at his house.  

Brady later distanced himself from Michaels’s statement, but it got me thinking, will Brady provide Brown a similar offer in Tampa? Brown who burned just about every bridge he could burn in the NFL, did not burn his bridge to Tom Brady. Seriously, it might not be such a bad idea for Brown to be housemates with Brady who could certainly manage to keep Brown in line for half a season.

Brown is closing in on the conclusion of his 8-game suspension which he received for pleading no contest to a felony burglary with battery charge and in a separate incident, allegedly sent threatening text messages to a woman who said Brown made unwanted sexual advances towards her.

Prior to the suspension, Brown had signed a huge contract with the Oakland Raiders but forced his way out of Oakland with what can be described as erratic behavior. He was later signed by the New England Patriots in Week 2 of last season. The Patriots released Brown after sexual assault and rape allegations against the receiver came to light, and he hasn’t been on an NFL roster since.

Clearly Brown still has a ton left in the tank and even if he has lost a step or two, he is still probably pound for pound the most talented wide receiver in the game today.

I guess the ultimate question is do you believe that the Tampa Bay Bucs head coach Bruce Arians is going to be able to keep AB in check for 8-games when he only lasted 1-game with Bill Belichick?
