Gronkowski will be reunited with quarterback Tom Brady in Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers will add a seventh-round pick to their 2020 draft class. Gronkowski has already completed a physical which points to the rumors being true. Adam Schefter has reported that Tampa Bay and New England have been in discussions about this trade for some time now.
What will happen to Gronkowski’s WWE contract is still to be determined. This trade happened quickly, which is something to look into.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are truly in win-now mode with the addition of Gronkowski. If this changes anything with the O.J. Howard rumors is still to be seen.
With the signing of Rob Gronkowski, the Buccaneers have about $3.7 million in cap space. Gronkowski will command a $10 million salary in 2020, and you can expect more moves to be made before the start of the season.
Update: Rob Gronkowski already has taken his physical in Boston with a neutral physician and is awaiting the official results, though one source added he believes he passed “with flying colors.”
Once physical is passed, Gronkowki will be a Buc and reunited with Tom Brady.
