Buccaneers have good news about keeping vital offensive weapon
By Rob Leeds
The Buccaneers are in a precarious spot in free agency. Finding a way to keep Rob Gronkowski would go a long way to staying in contention in 2022.
After numerous instances of bad news for the Buccaneers, it looks like fans could start to allow hope to build again if they can find a way to keep Rob Gronkowski in Tampa.
This hasn’t seemed very likely after seeing Tom Brady retire and after Gronk came out in support of several other quarterbacks than the ones that are likely to be in Tampa, but all of that could be different after a recent revelation from Bruce Arians.
According to Arians through Greg Auman on Twitter, Gronk is giving everyone sufficient reason to believe that retirement may not come during this offseason.
Working out twice a day is not behavior from a guy that plans on leaving the sport anytime soon. Gronk may still retire, but actions like this at leasts show that he is planning on trying to stay in the league. Why else would someone put their body at risk working out twice per day?
Adding to the fire, why would Gronk work out twice per day at Tampa’s facilities if he had no intention of coming back to play for the Buccaneers? One would think that, if Gronk really wanted to play somewhere else, he would be practicing with those guys now to build chemistry for the future.
None of this is concrete or guarantees anything going forward, but it certainly builds hope during a time where most fans need it the most.
Gronkowski is still one of the best tight ends in the NFL, and keeping him would go a long way to salvaging this free agent class and keeping Tampa right there at the top of the NFC South.
Hopefully Rob Gronkowski decides to continue his legacy in Tampa without Brady.
