Fans of former NFL player Rob Gronkowski might be in for a treat. The tight end who retired from the New England Patriots at the end of the 2018 football season is rumored to be thinking about joining his former quarterback, Tom Brady, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
It was not long after the The Tampa Bay Buccaneers officially signed Tom Brady to a two-year, $50 million deal on Friday that the rumors started flying. All over the streets of Tampa there were words flying around that Gronkowski could be joining the future hall of famer quarterback.
18 Karat Reggae caught up with the Buccaneers offensive coordinator, Byron Leftwich in the desolate streets of Ybor City, Tampa. Adhering to the 6 feet rule of social distancing we asked the coach about the Gronkowski rumors. While the coach did not admit to the words of the Tampa Bay streets, he did not deny them either.
“Look our goal is to put the best offense and the best overall team on the field for 2020. Based on the talent available and what our salary cap allows, that’s how we are building the team. Right now, we expect great things for OJ Howard at the tight end spot, however, if we see the possibility where we can improve at that position, we would definitely go for it,” Leftwich says.
We tried to reach out to Gronkowski but the former tight end is busy being a wrestler in the WWE these days. At only 30 years old, however, it is not farfetched to think that he might consider giving up the fake for the real, especially when you consider that he would be catching balls from Tom Brady.
