Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski is re-signing with Tampa Bay. The deal is worth a reported $10 million for one year. Tom Brady will have his favorite target back again, as the Buccaneers are attempting to re-sign all the key pieces from their Super Bowl run.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news on Monday evening.

Of all the signings (50-plus) that have taken place on the first day of the NFL’s legal tampering window, this is perhaps one of the most important. Rob Gronkowski returned from retirement after Brady switched teams. The two clearly wanted to play together, which showed in the Super Bowl.
Gronkowski caught two touchdowns in the Super Bowl and was Brady’s security blanket during the entirety of the 2020 season. Tampa has already re-signed Shaq Barrett and Leonard Fournette as the team of mercenaries wants to go back-to-back.
