Antonio Brown’s deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers isn’t worth a ton of money.

The Bucs sent shockwaves through the league when they agreed to a deal with the former Steelers star, and they’re getting him at a very cheap rate. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

According to Adam Schefter, the deal with the Bucs has a max value of $2.5 million, and Brown will earn $1 million in base salary and roster bonuses.

Brown is currently suspended for violating the league’s personal conduct code, and he’ll be cleared to return after week eight.

While I think signing Antonio Brown is a very dumb idea, at least the Bucs don’t have much invested in him at all.

If things go south, which seems very possible, then Tampa Bay can cut and run without much of an issue.

At the same time, if things with Brown go great, then they’re getting an elite player at an extremely cheap price.

The Bucs will look like geniuses if they make a Super Bowl run, Brown plays well and he stays out of trouble.

We’ll see what happens, but I’m still far from convinced that putting Antonio Brown back into an NFL locker room is a good idea.
