    Pretty amazing. Rob Gronkowski apparently was still on the payroll of the Patriots. I didn't know that. He left the NFL for network TV doing analyst work with Fox Sports, and that seemed to be the end of his NFL career.

    But now he has been traded to the Bucs, and joins Tom Brady yet again. This time though on a complete different team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    The Bucs gave up a 4th round draft pick, in exchange for Gronk and a 7th. Seems the Bucs got the better end of that deal, if Gronk is anywhere near the player he was just a few seasons ago.

    As the video suggests, I do think both players are going to benefit from a completely different team atmosphere, and Gronk always made it known he wasn't the biggest fan of how Belichick ran things. So this does make sense. Likely part of Gronk retiring in the first place was because the Patriots were so strict and he is a big kid at the end of the day and just wants to have fun. He should a lot more fun in Tampa I would think. Hope he can stay healthy.

    Good for Gronk. That is a cheap price tag to get him.. I guess the Patriots don't expect he will hold up long. Hope he proves them wrong.

    I think that's a crazy good deal the Bucs gave for Gronk. To give up a 4th round pick for a well-known beast of a player reuniting with one of the best quaterbacks of all time is an absolute steal. To add to that, their chemistry on the field should payoff big with fans and the game itself. I would also imagine these two will bring a ton of new Buccaneers fans from the Patriots.

    I'm super, super interested to see how the Bucs play this season with the changes they've made.

    It'll also be interesting to see how the Bucs turnout their 2020 season. Last year they went 7/9, so it would be crazy to see them get to the Super Bowl with Brady and Gronk.

    Wouldn't that be nuts? I wonder if Patriots fans would love or hate that!
