Patriots Make Foxboro Antonio Brown’s New HomePhilip G. Pavely - USA TODAY Sports

There was a surprising development on Saturday as the saga with Antonio Brown came to an end in Oakland, but his future for 2019 with see him join Tom Brady and the Patriots’ offense.

According to Adam Schefter, after being cut by the Raiders, Brown has agreed to a one-year deal with New England worth up to $15-million. The deal reportedly includes a $9-million signing bonus, $10 million guaranteed and $5 million in incentives.

Brown’s reaction on Instagram saw him post a photo of himself wearing a Patriots uniform with #84, captioned “LFG #GodsPlan”. However, tight end Ben Watson is currently #84 on New England’s roster.

Brown’s addition suddenly rounds out a pretty talented receiving core for New England, which will see Brown join Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon, Phillip Dorsett, along with rookies Jakobi Meyers and Gunner Olszewski. Given how well rookie N’Keal Harry played prior to his injury, it appears the Patriots should have a pretty deadly group this season once Harry returns from IR.

Brown is coming off of six consecutive seasons with over 100 receptions and over 1000-yards. He played in 15 games last season for Pittsburgh, finishing with 104 receptions for 1297-yards and 15 touchdowns.

Due to the timing of the signing, he won’t be eligible to play until Week 2 for his new team.
