With his suspension reaching its final stretch, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown plans to visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when he is eligible to return on Nov. 26, he told The New York Times on Tuesday.
“It’s pretty much the same situation of what we had last year, I said I was coming there,” he said. “I want to help this team get to where we want to go.”
“Tampa is one of the top teams right now,” he added. “I think that the quarterback is playing out of his mind.”
This year, the Bucs have a 4-3 record. The Steelers, who are favored to defeat the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, have been playing inconsistently, while Brown has been inconsistent as well. Brown has 12 catches for 205 yards so far this season, with one touchdown.
The sixth-year wide receiver spent his suspension sitting down and watching film and working out in Pittsburgh, a ritual that has stuck with him.
“This is the first time I can sit down and watch the film like I normally do,” he said. “So it was good to sit down and just watch, and watch for a couple of hours. It helped me to get the things that were bothering me.”
Brown also visited the New England Patriots on Oct. 13 and the Chicago Bears on Oct. 16.
