The dude looked like he was falling apart in his last season. It’s like everyone just forgets how bad he was

I guess Arians will have to line him up in the slot just to keep his TE hating rep.

I think you mean in-line?

I do not, no

Maybe I’m missing the joke, then - wouldn’t lining him up in the slot indicate a willingness to use him primarily as a receiver?

Everyone says Arians hates TEs.

In order to keep that reputation, he has to use Gronk outside of TE.

well he only wanted to play for TB and a 4th is better then nothing.

Very true. But, I feel like the Bucs woulda done a 3rd if Pats standed firm?

Uh putting it into perspective a fourth is incredible value for the Pats in this trade.

yea...I still think since Gronk WANTED to come back but only wanted to play With Brady the Bucs would have seen this as a greater chance to Win a SB and woulda ponied up a 3rd to make Brady happy.

Was Gronks blocking as good in the last couple years? Would be hilarious if he was primarily blocking the whole season.

What a nightmare for any D.C. to game plan against the Bucs. You need 2 shutdown corners & a stud at LB , no team has that. Maybe the Dolphins are the closest with Xavien Howard / Byron Jones and Kyle Van Noy . But no one really matches up against Gronk , we all know this . Let’s see how healthy he is

Hurts all pass catchers in Tampa Bay IMO. I think this Peyton Manning to Broncos situation with Brady especially in that division, I see Brady going for mininum 40 tds and 4500 yards. 1. Lamar 2. Mahommes 3. Murrary 4. Brady 5. Russel Wilson 5. Rodgers

What round would you guys draft Gronk this year and what you rank him among TEs.

Pros- Knows Brady, Body healed after a year presumably, Super High flying passing offense, shoot out division, running backs not great

Cons- 3rd option behind 2 top 15 WR in the nfl, Arians doesn't use the TE, OJ Howard (who may get traded) still there, he might just be a red zone guy.

I rank him 

1. Kelce

2. Kittle

3. Ertz

4. Andrews

______________________________HUGE TIER CHANGE____________________________

5. Waller (Oak likely getting a WR)

6. Fant (if they don't draft a qb)

7. Gronk

Other options include: Engram, Hooper, Cook, Hooper, Henry (all these guys are also the 3/4 option on their team like Gronk)

 

I wouldn't touch gronk until round 6, he will be long gone and super overhyped.

Helluva question. The only conclusion I can draw is they're not interested in him for some reason. Sure would like to know why GMs are so down on this guy. He'd be a difference maker on a team that used him properly.
