Bucs Activate Antonio Brown
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have officially activated veteran wide receiver Antonio Brown, who they signed to a deal just last week.
It’s unclear just how big of a role Brown will play in Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints, and head coach Bruce Arians wasn’t tipping his hand when speaking to reporters.
“He’ll have his role. It could be 10 plays; it could be 35 plays,” Arians said (h/t ESPN). “I wouldn’t anticipate 60 plays, for sure, but we’ll just see how it goes.”
Now, it’s all about getting Brown up to speed on offense and making sure he is available to play on Sunday night.
“We’ll see how much we can get him taught,” Arians said. “And the first practice will be a walk-through because we’ve got a short week coming off Monday night, so we basically miss a practice this week on Wednesday because of the short week, so it’ll be a walk-through practice and basically all learning.”
