One year ago, the Buffalo Bills wanted to bring Rob Gronkowski back home and the team is apparently still feeling the exact same way.
Word around the NFL Scouting Combine is that if Gronkowski wants to keep playing, the Bills still are open to bringing the veteran tight end and Amherst, N.Y., native to their offense. Gronkowski grew up a fan of the Bills.
Now, Tim Graham of The Athletic reports that there is hope in the Buffalo organization that he would be open to finishing out his career with his hometown team.
It should be noted that the 32-year-old said that he would be taking some time before ultimately deciding on his future in the NFL back in late January.
If Gronkowski was to join the Bills, it’d make for quite the tight end room with Dawson Knox already on the roster.
In 16 career games against the Bills, he has totaled 74 receptions for 1,132 yards and 12 touchdowns. Those numbers are the highest of his career against any single opponent.
