Antonio Brown is eligible to return to the field Week 9 for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which would be a huge game against the division rival New Orleans Saints.
Even though he just signed a 1-year deal, not everybody thinks he’ll actually make it to the game.
Pro Bowl defensive end Cameron Jordan raised skepticism about Brown with what appeared to be a shot at the wide receiver when asked his thoughts about facing him.
“He’s got to get to Week Nine,” Jordan said of Brown.
Brown played in only one game in 2019, which was a year that saw him start on the Steelers, traded to the Raiders and released, and then signed and cut by the Patriots after just eleven days.
“He’s a tremendous football player. I played with him for a brief period of time. I’m looking forward to working with him again. He’s a very hard-working guy,” Brady said of Brown.
