The Buccaneers have a lot of good receivers. So what are they going to do with wide receiver Antonio Brown on the squad?

It’s simple. They will put more receivers on the ground.

Appearing on SiriusXM NFL Radio last night, Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians said the offense would find a way to make Mike Evans and Chris Godwin and Scotty Miller and Brown available to Tom Brady at the same time.

“We started to introduce a bigger package, so we could have all these guys on the pitch,” Arians said of his team’s top four receivers, via JoeBucsFan.com.

It’s good for Brown and the other receivers. It’s not so good for tight ends and running backs, because with four receivers, five offensive linemen and a quarterback, there’s only one spot left.

And there is still only one soccer ball. What will be the most interesting thing to watch once Brown makes his Buccaneers debut in Week 9 against the Saints, the Sunday night football. Especially since Brown has so much money tied to catching passes (at least 45), yardage gains (at least 650), and touchdowns (at least six).
