If cleared by the NFL, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would have the opportunity to sign Antonio Brown. However, head coach Bruce Arians has made it clear he’s not interested in this idea of pairing him with Tom Brady.

During a recent appearance on “Tiki and Tierney” show on CBS Sports Radio, Arians made it clear he has no interest in the idea of the Buccaneers signing Brown. He went a step further stating he wouldn’t want Brown even if it were for a deal worth just the veteran’s minimum.

“It’s not gonna happen. There’s no room. It’s just not gonna happen. It’s just not a fit here,” Arians said.”I just know him, and it’s not a fit in our locker room.”

A lot has happened involving Brown since he forced his way out of Pittsburgh in 2018. He went from being a highly marketable athlete on the cover of Madden 19 and in national Pepsi commercials to having no shortage of controversies.

While the off the field antics associated with Brown can rub some people the wrong way, it’s important to not forget the level of talent he possess. He racked up 104 receptions, 1,297 yards, and 15 touchdowns during his final season with the Steelers.

With that being said, there are some major reasons why the Buccaneers are making a mistake by not wanting to sign Antonio Brown.
