Along with waiting for Tom Brady to make his decision, which he has since done, is the waiting game on Rob Gronkowski, who will likely ride off into the sunset with his longtime QB if he chooses to do so.
Gronkowski has yet to make an official decision on 2021.
“What a ride it’s been. Grateful to the Bucs for giving me an opportunity to play another year. To my teammates, thank you for giving everything you had. The sweat we shed & memories made will never be forgotten,” he said following the Divisional Round loss to the Rams.
Just in case Rob Gronkowski does decide to continue his career, the upstate New York native could make a return to Buffalo and sign with the Bills.
Long before he would go on to dominate the franchise, Rob Gronkowski envisioned himself as a player on the Bills.
“The Bills do mean a lot to my family and I. We grew up in Buffalo, 25 minutes from the stadium. I was a big Bills fan growing up,” Gronkowski told the media in December.
With his former team in New England, Gronkowski made 69 catches for 1,070 yards and 12 touchdowns in 15 games against the Bills.
“Takeo Spikes, Eric Moulds, the Jim Kelly era,” Gronkowski said. “Whenever I was in the back yard playing football with my friends, my brothers and I, you line up out wide you’re pretending you’re the receiver they had. Moulds was my favorite player. If you make a stop or big hit you’re acting like Takeo Spikes. The history of the Buffalo Bills goes way back for my family and I from playing in the back yard to watching the games.”
Playing in a cold weather city would be nothing new for Rob Gronkowski and the Bills are built to win now as they did all they could to defeat the Chiefs. That final 13 seconds in regulation will haunt them for some time.
