Teams believe Tom Brady wants Antonio Brown to play with him
Tom Brady is one of the most successful and beloved quarterbacks in the game. Antonio Brown is a wide receiver whose talent is overshadowed by a myriad of controversies. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers would be in for a ride if they pull off the steal of the season and acquire both of them in free agency.
The Tom Brady sweepstakes is all but over, and there are plenty of rumors going around about the six-time Super Bowl Champion’s wish list. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers weren’t always favorites for him, but it looks like the Bucs will have to pull off a bit of magic in order to make their dreams come true, making the agreement official at some point as soon as the league allows it.
NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero reported that the seasoned quarterback enjoyed playing with AB in the only game they played together in his last season with the Patriots. Pelissero has sufficient reason to believe that the two will be making ways to play together.
Just mentioned on @nflnetwork: The NFL says Antonio Brown’s status remains under review. If he’s cleared to play, would the #Bucs sign him? Other suitors were under the impression Tom Brady wanted AB to come with him. It’d give Brady a WR group of Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and AB.

Given Brown’s legal issues, it’s hard to tell if Brown will be given the green light to play this season. However, it’s known to everyone that Brady definitely liked Brown enough that he reportedly offered to let him sleep in his own home.
If the Buccaneers managed to pull this off, they will have one of the most loaded offenses in history. Mike Evans and Chris Goodwin are already terrific receiving options. Add Brady and Brown to the mix and you will get one of the most dangerous passing offenses in the NFC.
Of course, all of this is still a pipe dream as long as Brown’s status is still uncertain. However, fans are already salivating at the thought of having Brady and Brown in Tampa Bay colors.
