Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski will likely be back with the team next season if it’s up to him.
The 31-year-old veteran had recently mentioned that he wanted to make a decision on his professional future after the playoffs were over. Eligible for free agent status in March, the former New England Patriots appears to have enjoyed the 2020 campaign alongside quarterback Tom Brady.
Asked by the NFL Network about a presence on the ground during the 2021 calendar, Gronkowski replied: “yes, it must”.
“I feel this team was built to win. They’ve put everything in place for it this year, he said just hours before the second-round game against the New Orleans Saints. The club could really come back with a lot of talent and have another great run next year, with me. ”
During the regular season, the number 87 caught 45 balls for 623 yards and seven touchdowns. He had chosen to come out of retirement after a year of inactivity. The “Pats” traded him to the “Bucs” on April 21, so he reunited with his sidekick Brady, with whom he won the Super Bowl three times.
A five-time Pro Bowl guest and 42nd overall pick in the 2010 Draft, Gronkowski sits sixth in Goodell Tour history among tight ends with 8,484 passing yards.
