2. Rob Gronkowski isn’t the starting TE
Some of you may say ‘this isn’t a bold prediction, lots of people could tell you that Gronkowski isn’t the best tight end on the roster.’
Well, while many have expressed concerns about Gronk, the truth of the matter is this: You don’t agree to pay a man $10 million (before the revenue loss negotiations) if you don’t think he can play and be a starter on your offense.
Despite the fact that the Bucs are paying Gronk an insane amount of money- and I still think he’ll be effective- it’s my belief that we won’t see him as the starting tight end due to the success of Cameron Brate and even *gasp* O.J. Howard during Training Camp.
He’ll still get plenty of snaps and may even come out with the first-team offense, but it ultimately won’t be Gronk who is the starting tight end.
