Breaking: Rob Gronkowski to the Buccaneers, Pending Results of Physical


Estimated Reading Time: 2 Minutes

Well, as if the world cannot get any more upside down in 2020, it would appear that Rob Gronkowski is set to return to the NFL as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The price for Brady/Gronk 2.0? The Patriots will send Gronk and a seventh-round pick to Tampa in exchange for their fourth-round selection.

This would mean the Bucs have snagged two key pieces of the Patriots Dynasty this offseason.

Rob Gronkowski has been away from the NFL after “Retiring” after the 2019 Super Bowl. In his last game as a Patriot, Gronkowski caught six passes for 87 yards, as the Patriots took down Jared Goff‘s Los Angeles Rams for their sixth Super Bowl ring.

This trade comes as quite a shock. During his season away from the game, Gronk would often talk about how much of a toll the game took on his body. Last August, Gronkowski told NBC News about the head injuries he had endured.

“No lie, I felt my head, I used to have liquid,” Gronkowski said. “It used to be thick, like, my head used to be thicker, like a centimeter of liquid in some spots, and you feel it. I’d be like, ‘What the heck?’ You could put indents in my head, but now, finally, I’m getting the right treatments and doing the right things.”

And now, pending the results of his physical, Gronk returns to the fray once more.

As mentioned before the Buccaneers signed Tom Brady to a 2-year, $50 million dollar deal. The money is fully guaranteed, and Brady will have the ability to earn up to an additional $9 million in incentives over the course of the contract. These incentives are evenly divided over the two years and are connected to his performance in both the regular season and post-season.

Can these two former Patriots regain their magical connection and bring a Super Bowl ring to Tampa Bay? Will they even have the chance? Only time will tell.
