The bonuses of the contract include $750,000 for a Super Bowl win and three $250,000 incentives separated into receptions, yards, and touchdowns – all depending on Antonio Brown’s performance for the Buccaneers in the remaining games of the season.
The bargain deal handed out to the seven-time Pro Bowler was already expected by many upon his signing. The Bucs didn’t have much fluidity in cap space due to their already stacked roster. Their recent pickup in running back Leonard Fournette also received the same treatment and got a similar one-year, veteran-minimum deal with bonus upon his arrival in Tampa Bay.
Brown previously signed a one-year contract with the New England Patriots worth up to $15 million back in September of 2019. However, his stint in Foxborough didn’t last long where he only appeared in a lone game against the Miami Dolphins. After a flurry of allegations and controversies, the Patriots then decided to cut him from the roster a few weeks later.
With a fresh start in Tampa Bay, the Florida native hopes to pick up where he left off and find his Pro Bowl form dating back to his days as a Pittsburgh Steeler. Hopefully, Brown will be able to finally set things straight and get his career back on track for the coming seasons.
