After a Super Bowl bash, an appearance on FOX to discuss CBD and a whole bunch of other nonsense, Rob Gronkowski is reportedly ending his retirement and returning to the NFL.
Following a bunch of reports suggesting Gronk was ready to come back to play football, it's now happening. The New England Patriots are sending the All-Pro tight end and a seventh-round pick to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for a fourth-round pick.
And there goes the Patriots dynasty. It cannot be saved.
We very much knew Gronk wouldn't play with any other quarterback than Tom Brady, so his trade to the Bucs isn't what's surprising. It's the fact he took a year off from football, watched New England's offense crumble, and then opted to come back after Brady decided to leave for a new team. That's a good way to get back at Bill Belichick after he tried to trade you elsewhere.
The Brady to Gronk connection is back, and there's no time to process this in our brains. Seemingly, it cost a surprisingly small amount to obtain him, considering all the leverage Bill Belichick had here?! Insanity is transpiring.
