Antonio Brown can make $1 million in contract incentives for WR-needy Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown lost at least $320,000 over his three-game suspension for misrepresenting his COVID-19 vaccination status, but he will have the chance to make it all back — and then some.

Brown is in striking distance of $1 million in total contract incentives — $333,333 each for receptions, yards and touchdowns. He enters Sunday with 29 receptions and needs 21 more in the final three games to earn an additional $333,333, according to a review of his contract.

Brown also currently has 418 receiving yards and needs 382 more in the final three games to earn another $333,333 in incentives. He also has five touchdowns and needs two more to make another $333,333.

After serving his three-game suspension, Brown is expected to be Tom Brady ‘s No. 1 receiving option Sunday and possibly beyond for the Buccaneers, who will be without star receivers Chris Godwin and Mike Evans .

The Bucs announced this past week that Godwin will miss the remainder of the season with a torn ACL, and Evans is out Sunday against the Panthers with a hamstring injury.

Brown attained a $250,000 incentive last year in the regular-season finale, when he hauled in three receptions from Brady on the final drive of the game against the Falcons .
