Gronk joins Brady at Bucs

Rob Gronkowski is coming out of retirement to reunite with longtime teammate Tom Brady after the New England Patriots agreed to trade the tight end to Tampa Bay, the Buccaneers said on Tuesday. Gronkowski, who still has one year remaining on his contract with New England, was a formidable offensive weapon and one of quarterback Brady’s most reliable targets at the Patriots where he was part of three Super Bowl-winning teams. “We’ve agreed to trade for TE Rob Gronkowski,” the Buccaneers said in a tweet late on Tuesday. “Welcome to Tampa Bay, Gronk!” the team said next to a photo of a smiling Gronkowski. Earlier, a report on the NFL website sourcing NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, said the Patriots agreed to trade Gronkowski and a seventh-round draft pick to the Buccaneers in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2020 draft that begins today. Gronkowski announced his retirement in March 2019, ending one of the NFL’s most dominant and colorful careers after nine seasons. The 30-year-old spent all nine of his NFL seasons with the Patriots.
