“In college I was asked to write about dream job opportunity what I wanted to pursue and where would be the place,” wrote Gronkowski. “Every time I had to write about my future, no matter what, I chose a career as a professional footballer. However, for this task, we had to choose a location. So, I wrote that I want to play in Tampa for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for many reasons, since the sunny weather was #1. I completely forgot about writing this report until I had the opportunity to join the Tampa Bay Pirates two years ago. And let me tell you, traveling to Tampa over the past two years has blown away what I originally wrote about in college. And for that, I want to thank the entire top-notch Buccaneers organization for an amazing trip, trusting me to come back to play and help build a championship team.

“Now I will go back to my nursing home, walk away from football again with my head held high, knowing that I gave it everything I had, good or bad, every time I took the field. The friendships and relationships I have formed will last forever and I appreciate each of my teammates and coaches for giving everything they had as well. From retirement, back to football and winning another championship, and now back to rest, thank you all. Buccaneers fans, Krewe, without you guys, none of this is possible, you all brought it to every game, thank you for everything you do. Hail what’s next, maybe sailing the seas. Aaaaaaa!!

Gronkowski had a fun offseason that will continue into the season if his good friend Brady can’t lure him back. The Bucks expressed optimism about Gronkowski’s return throughout the offseason, but they chose the Washington option. Cade Otton and Minnesota Ko Kift go with Cam Bratate.

Gronkowski has earned a base salary of $9.25 million and $8 million on the team over the past two seasons. He also received $1 million in promotions last year. It is not known if the parties talked about money at all before Gronkowski made the decision.

Gronkowski caught 55 passes for 802 yards with six touchdowns in 2021 in 12 games. During his career, he has 621 receptions for 9,286 yards and 92 touchdowns.

If so, then Gronkowski would surely enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame in the first vote after a mandatory five-year waiting period.
