Is the Juice Worth the Squeeze?

When Brown is behaving himself, working hard, and focusing on being the best football player that he can be Antonio is one of the best wide receivers in the National Football League, but when he is causing distractions, feuding with his teammates and coaches, and getting into trouble off of the gridiron he can be a total liability to himself as well as his team.

Lately he has proven to not be worth all the issues that he has caused. Only time will tell if Brown is finally ready to be an asset to his organization and help contribute to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue winning throughout the 2021 – 2022 NFL season.
