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.
