3 Most Likely Antonio Brown Free Agent Destinations Heading Into the NFL Draft
By Larry Rupp
The NFL Draft is almost here, but a number of big name free agents remain unsigned. One of those players is wide receiver Antonio Brown, who racked up 483 yards on 45 receptions and scored 4 touchdowns in 8 games played with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season.
A reunion with the Buccaneers seemed to be the easy option for Brown, but that idea becomes less and less likely as the offseason rolls on. With that being said, here are three of the most likely free agent destinations for Antonio Brown.
1. Baltimore Ravens
The Baltimore Ravens solidified their wide receiver depth chart by signing Sammy Watkins this offseason, but it's possible they are still looking to add a veteran like Brown. The team hasn't given quarterback Lamar Jackson a true No. 1 receiver to work with at any time in his career so far. Brown could step into that kind of role if he is able to keep up the level of play he showed last season. Plus, Brown could reunite with his cousin and Ravens starter Marquise Brown in Baltimore.
2. Green Bay Packers
Many people expected the Green Bay Packers to sign a free agent wide receiver to pair with star DaVante Adams, but no such move has been made yet. Brown remains a viable option here given his NFL experience and ability to lineup almost anywhere on the offense. The Packers were rumored to have interest in Brown before he signed with the Buccaneers last season, so it is likely they still have interest today. The front office would be smart to bring in another top option for reigning MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Of course, the possibility of Brown returning to Tampa Bay in an attempt to win back-to-back Super Bowl titles is still a likely scenario. He has stated in the past how much he enjoys playing with quarterback Tom Brady and also has a great relationship with head coach Bruce Arians. Brown would be the No. 3 receiver on this team, but he proved last season that he can still make an impact in that spot. Surrounding Brady with as many weapons as they can should be a top priority for Tampa Bay.
