Start the Super Bowl parade out on Dale Mabry Highway. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who desperately needed a wide receiver, have added one.

Oh wait, they added Reggie Brown. No, the Bucs haven’t landed a No. 1 wide receiver to replace Antonio Bryant yet. But they did trade a 2011 sixth-round draft pick to Philadelphia for Brown. But, hey, it’s the first real acquisition the Bucs have made this offseason and it at least comes at a position of need.

Unlike Bryant, Brown doesn’t come with baggage, other than the fact he was a high pick in the second round in 2005 and never came close to playing up to his potential for the Eagles. At absolute best, Brown might have a chance to be the No. 2 receiver in Tampa Bay.
