The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are set to take on the New Orleans Saints on Sunday Night Football and Antonio Brown is expected to make his debut with the Buccaneers. While Brown’s role is yet to be determined, Jason Licht — Tampa Bay’s GM — used an interesting analogy to describe Brown.
“If you saw him in a grocery store, you wouldn’t think he’s a seven-time Pro Bowler. But man. He’s very strong, great hands, super explosive.”
Licht explained his grocery store analogy by stating that Brown is way more explosive than he looks.
“He’s just so explosive and sudden and so much stronger than he looks,” Bucs GM Jason Licht told NFL.com after watching AB practice in Tampa.
After signing with the Buccaneers a couple of weeks ago, Brown is going to suit up for his new team on Sunday night. While his role is unknown, Licht shared that he expects Brown to be utilized in a similar fashion to how he was used with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
“I expect him to be out there and he’s picked things up very quickly,” Licht said, adding that the offense is “very similar” to what they ran with the Steelers and that we could see Brown a lot.
Besides Brown, the Buccaneers also have Mike Evans, Rob Gronkowski, and Scotty Miller for Tom Brady to target. Plus, Chris Godwin, despite dealing with a finger injury, could be available for Tampa Bay on Sunday night.
Nevertheless, Licht and the Buccaneers are ecstatic to add Brown to an offense that is beginning to find their groove.
