For one week during the 2019 season, we got to see what it would happen if Antonio Brown and Antonio Brown were teammates. While Brown's tenure with the Patriots ultimately didn't last long, he still wants to reunite with his ex-quarterback.

In an appearance on Friday's edition of The Mike Calta Show, Brown made it fairly clear that he wants to play with Brady on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. When asked which team or teams he'd like to play for if he had his choice, Brown responded immediately with "preferably with Tom."

Brown explained that he and Brady became friends during his brief time in New England. He considers Brady one of his "close friends" in the NFL.

The six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver was among the first to congratulate Brady when he signed with the Bucs earlier today.

Brown played one game for the New England Patriots after being cut by the Raiders before the start of the 2019 season. He made four catches for 56 yards and a touchdown in a win over the Miami Dolphins.

However, Brown conceded that he wasn't entirely sure what will happen with his NFL status. The league is still investigating off-the-field incidents that led to his ousting from New England this past September.

But considering that Brown already has a home in Florida, it wouldn't be too difficult for him to drive up to Tampa Bay and give the Bucs a workout.

A receiving corps of Brown, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and OJ Howard with Tom Brady at QB could give the 2007 Patriots a run for their money.

Will Antonio Brown and Tom Brady wind up playing together again?
