TAMPA, Fla. — It's official. Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown is coming back for the Tampa Bay team's upcoming season. 

Brown first joined the Bucs during their 2020 Super Bowl championship season, playing in eight games during the regular season.

While on the field, Brown recorded 45 receptions for 483 yards and four touchdowns. His post-season stats also helped push the Bucs towards an at-home Super Bowl LV victory with eight receptions and two touchdowns over three games. 

10 Sports' Grace Remington reports Brown has passed his physical after receiving a knee scope. 

The seven-time Pro Bowl receiver and four-time All-Pro selection ranks first in NFL history in receptions per game with 6.4, according to the Buccaneers.

The team says he also owns the longest streak in the league's history for at least five catches and 50-or-more receiving yards across 35 consecutive regular-season games.

Brown first entered the NFL during the 2010 draft and is a Miami native.
