The Bucs announced on Saturday that Tampa Bay’s wide receiver and primary return specialist Jaydon Mickens has been placed on the NFL’s reserve/COVID-19 list, in addition to practice squad receiver Cyril Grayson.

With Mickens set to miss Sunday’s contest against the Carolina Panthers, the Bucs will be in search of a new return man. Justin Watson, who will presumably be active with Mickens out, has experience returning for Tampa Bay and Scotty Miller has worked as a returner in practice but the team could also choose to go with Antonio Brown.

While primarily used as a punt returner, Brown spent time in both roles during his time with Pittsburgh. Over his career, Brown has returned one kickoff and four punts for touchdowns.

Does anyone else think Scott had something to do with Cyril’s positive COVID test??
