The Tampa Bay Buccaneers ended the 2019 season with Jameis Winston as the team’s starting quarterback, a 7-9 record, and missing the postseason for the 12th-straight year.
Now, they’ll be headed into the 2020 season with Tom Brady, who signed a two-year deal with the Buccaneers earlier this offseason. If that wasn’t enough, the team added even more fire power when they traded for tight end Rob Gronkowski and a seventh-round pick with the New England Patriots.
Just a few minutes after the trade news broke, the Carolina Panthers official Twitter account reacted in anger as they posted a clip of Gronk’s guest appearance on a New Year’s Eve show.
“Are you serious?”
“Why is he here?”
From 7-9 to possible Super Bowl contender in just over a month.
