Trade, pending physical: Patriots are trading TE Rob Gronkowski and a seventh-round pick to the Buccaneers for a fourth-round pick, source tells ESPN.

Tom Brady, Gronk, Mike Evans, and Chris Godwin (technically still have OJ Howard too), but come on. I hope eveyone got in on 22-1 for the Bucs to win the title before this trade broke.
I know the Patriots didn’t have much leverage, but only getting a 4th rounder back for a 30 year old Gronk, the greatest tight end ever, you gotta wonder if Belichick’s lost a step. If I’m Gronk there is no chance I’m coming out of retirement. He had it made in his post football life. He was with his supermodel girlfriend in Tampa, hosted Wrestlemania, & became a WWE champion in less than a year.
There are going to be a bunch more penis parties in the Bucs locker room this year!

Gronk also mentioned he showed up to practices hangover during his career: "Yes, of course."

If you don’t think Tom Brady and Gronk absolutely hated playing for Bill Belichick I’ve got beachfront property in Iowa I’d like to sell ya.
Maybe Lane Johnson wasn’t so far off after all.
