Broad receiver Antonio Brown passed his physical Tuesday morning and officially signed up for a second season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The investigation was delayed by Brown’s recent knee surgery.
Brown agreed to a one-year contract with the Buccaneers valued at up to $ 6.25 million last month, but it was on hold until he passed his physical contract.
Brown, 32, played eight games for the Bucs in the 2020 regular season, scoring 45 passes for 483 yards and four touchdowns. A knee injury in the playoffs kept him away from the NFC championship game, but he returned to score five passes for 22 yards and a touchdown in the 31-9 Super Bowl win over the Kansas City Chiefs.
For his career, Brown has 886 catches for 11,746 yards and 79 touchdowns in 11 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers (2010-18), New England Patriots (2019) and Buccaneers.
A lawsuit was filed against Brown last week over a dispute with a driving truck driver in January 2020.
He recently settled a civil lawsuit with former coach Brittany Taylor that accused him of sexually assaulting her in 2017 and 2018.
