Could Rob Gronkowski play for another quarterback?
With Tom Brady’s recent retirement announcement, many Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans saw this decision as the end of the Brady era. Though short, just two years, Bucs fans are forever indebited to Brady for all he brought to the franchise.
Both on the field and in the clubhouse, Brady propelled the caliber of the already-talented team to a new level that many fans didn’t think could happen.
However, in hindsight, one of, if not the largest contribution that Brady made was his influence on the acquisition of free agents. On numerous occasions it was Brady that attracted top tier talent from the free agent market to come to Tampa and play.
And no free agent acquisition of the Brady era of Bucs football influenced the team more the last two seasons than tight-end Rob Gronkowski.
After a slow start last year as Gronkowski got back in the swing of things after a year off of football, he has since returned to his former self.
Brady and Gronkowski appeared as if they never stopped playing together. Gronkowski was even an integral part of the Super Bowl victory, scoring one of the vital touchdowns that secured the franchise its second ring.
Many around the league suspected that Gronkowski would certainly retire whenever Brady did. However, Gronkowski has made no formal retirement announcement.
With the way he was playing last season, Gronkowski would undoubtedly be welcomed to nearly any team in the league with open arms.
When Gronkowski was put on the spot and asked recently which QB he would most like to play for next after Brady, he told reporters it would have to be Joe Burrow.
Hopefully the Bengals don’t take this too seriously and never make an offer, because if Gronkowski is going to play another year, the Bucs should do everything in their power to keep the future Hall of Famer playing in Tampa Bay.
