The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are reportedly set to acquire tight end Rob Gronkowski from the New England Patriots, reuniting him with former teammate Tom Brady; Fox Sports lead college football analyst Joel Klatt reacts and previews the football season ahead.
Brady spent the last two decades with the New England Patriots, and it’s likely going to take some time for fans to get used to seeing him in a different uniform.
Brady will join a Buccaneers team that features talented wide receivers Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, along with tight ends Rob Gronkowski, O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate. With Jameis Winston under center last season, Tampa Bay finished with a 7-9 record. Winston had 33 touchdown passes and 30 interceptions — a total of 35 turnovers — along with 5,109 passing yards.
Brady won six Super Bowl titles and three NFL MVPs, was named to the Pro Bowl 14 times and was a First-Team All-Pro selection three times during his time with the Patriots. He will instantly make the Buccaneers Super Bowl contenders heading into the 2020 NFL season.
New England made the playoffs in 17 of the 20 seasons Brady was with the Patriots.
