Rob Gronkowski is not yet back with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but has been working out with a notable player away from the Buccaneers.

We’re so close to the draft. As such, our NFL-obsessed culture will take whatever we can get until then, so as far as the Bucs go, this little nugget could mean something as it pertains to the future of the team.

Courtesy of @AnthonyFit on Instagram, it has been revealed that Gronkowski has been working out with none other than Derrick Henry of the Tennessee Titans. He seems like a solid choice of a workout partner, considering he and Aaron Donald are the two biggest thoroughbreds in the entire NFL.

Naturally, speculation is already running rampant on what this could possibly mean for Gronk, and the Buccaneers.

Is Gronk going to the Titans? Is Tom Brady waving his magic wand to bring his buddy and Henry to Tampa Bay? Why else would he be working out with the NFL’s most impressive physical specimen this side of the mighty Mississippi? As much as the NFL offseason may resemble a Madden franchise mode, or even the NBA, more and more, these zany concepts are obviously not going to materialize.

That doesn’t mean this isn’t significant for the Buccaneers however.

From an outsider’s perspective, it easy to surmise that this doesn’t mean much of anything. From a Bucs perspective, it’s easy to get excited. It’s looking like Gronkowski may be on his way back to the field.

While him taking his sweet old time to decide his football future is a perfectly justifiable reason to he annoyed, we can now add an extra layer of excitement to the already palpable anticipation of the upcoming season.

Of course, this could also be in preparation for another wrestling appearance for Rob Gronkowski. WWE just had Wrestlemania and AEW is catching up after all…
