No more than a day after reports suggested that Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski would test the free-agent market, he decides to stay with the Bucs, and quarterback Tom Brady, on a one-year, $10 million deal, Gronkowski's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told ESPN's Adam Schefter..
The Bucs are making a full effort to try and keep its Super Bowl-winning team together, having previously agreed on Monday with free agent Shaq Barrett on a four-year deal that could net Barrett $72 million. This follows deals made to Lavonte David, and a franchise tag designation to wide receiver Chris Godwin.
The catalyst for these moves being made was the restructuring of Brady's contract, which opened up an extra $19 million on the 2021 cap.
Up next for the Bucs, if they want to keep the complete band together, are defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, receiver Antonio Brown, running back Leonard Fournette, and kicker Ryan Succop.
It's not gonna be easy.
