A nice payday for the seven-time Pro Bowl WR -- and a chance to help Tampa Bay go for two.
Brown settled his sexual assault lawsuit with his former trainer last week, which paved the way for 32-year-old to become the latest player to return for Tampa's title defense.
While most Super Bowl-winning squads inevitably lose players and coaches to free agency and the hiring cycle, the Buccaneers have remarkably been able to bring the whole band back together.
Brown has been one of the greatest receivers over the past decade, using his impeccable route-running skills, sturdy hands and elite quickness to roast defenses into oblivion.
Now, as he approaches the twilight of his career, Brown still serves as a trusty third-down safety blanket for Brady although he's certainly lost a step.
