Rob Gronkowski is taking his sweet old time making a decision regarding his football future is growing increasingly frustrating to some fans of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, however, the thing is that the Buccaneers are just fine while the future Hall of Fame tight end mulls it over.

To slightly paraphrase a quote from the third and distant bronze medal Godfather movie, “just when we think we’re out they pull us right back in.” It seems like Gronk’s future with the Bucs is growing less likely to result in the arguable GOAT of the position returning to Tampa Bay, and fans have come to terms with that. Just as we’re all about to move on tough, he’s seen working out with Tom Brady, albeit shagging flyballs for the quarterback (and former MLB draft pick of the Montreal Expos).

Naturally, we’re back to playing the waiting game. Obviously, we’d love for Gronkowski to be back in a Buccaneers uniform because it would make the team better. That said, the team will chug along just fine with or without him.

Even though organized team activities are officially underway, and everyone is still in the dark on Gronk’s future in football, the Buccaneers are fine to proceed as-is while he decides on what his next move is. Here are the three biggest reasons why.
