The Tampa Bay Buccaneers enter the 2021 NFL season with high expectations after essentially bringing back every important piece from last year's Super Bowl championship roster. That included WR Antonio Brown, who the Buccaneers agreed to re-sign last month.

But, a month later, Brown's contract is not yet finalized. Head coach Bruce Arians recently revealed the one final obstacle for officially finalizing this re-signing deal.

Buccaneers Antonio Brown Re-Signing

Arians revealed that Brown must still pass a physical after undergoing a recent knee scope. The procedure was successful, so it looks like this is just a matter of time.

After a few tumultuous NFL years, mostly because of his off-field antics, Brown was a bit of a revelation for the Buccaneers. He played in 8 games last season and caught 4 touchdowns and recorded nearly 500 receiving yards. He also caught five of six targets and a touchdown in last year's Super Bowl as the Buccaneers went on to comfortably handle the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9.

With all of these key pieces returning, FanDuel Sportsbook is loving the Buccaneers entering the 2021 season. Currently, Tampa Bay owns the second-best odds (+650) to win next year's championship.
