Once the initial shock of Tom Brady jumping ship from New England to Tampa Bay this free agency had worn off, the next logical question was would he be bringing Antonio Brown with him to town?
Brown, who has been unsigned since his meager one-game stint with the Patriots this past season, has been connected with Brady as a potential free agency pairing this offseason.
However, any thought of Brown joining the Buccaneers alongside Brady has seemingly been put to bed via head coach Bruce Arians.
Bruce Arians Says AB is Not a Fit in TB
While guest appearing on CBS Sports Radio’s “Tiki & Tierney” hosted by Tiki Barber and Brandon Tierney, Arians was adamant that the team would not be signing Brown.
“Yeah, it’s not going to happen,” Arians said. “It’s just not going to happen. There’s no room and probably not enough money. But it’s just not going to happen. It’s not a fit here.”
When asked if he would reconsider signing Brown were he be willing to play for the veteran’s minimum salary, Arians simply replied, “no.” When asked, why not? He simply stated “I just know him” and that “It’s not a fit in our locker room.”
