Why Rob Gronkowski still has Pro-Bowl potential with the Buccaneers
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a trade to acquire TE Rob Gronkowski just a few months ago after they signed his former teammate Tom Brady to a two-year deal.
Gronkowski, who had taken a year off from football, has been questioned since his decision to return and many don’t believe he’ll be able to return to his former self.
Though Rob Gronkowski still has some development to do as he works towards getting back to his playing weight and time isn’t on his side, either, here are three reasons why he can still reach Pro Bowl potential with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
3. He has chemistry on his side
If Gronkowski was ever going to come out of retirement, you know it was going to have to be to play with Tom Brady again.
When Brady made the jump to the Buccaneers, there were many analysts who speculated that he could lure Gronk out of retirement. That’s exactly what happened.
As we look ahead to the 2020 season, the one thing that Gronkowski has going for him more so than any other player on the Buccaneers roster is the chemistry he has already built with Tom Brady.
Those two have so much mutual respect for one another and it’s clear that Brady will be looking to get Gronk involved in the offense as much as possible.
