It looks like Rob Gronkowski will make a return to the NFL, but it's not with the New England Patriots.
The Patriots have reportedly traded Gronkowski and a seventh-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for a fourth-round selection.

Heads are swirling now that Gronk, who turns 31 next month, will join Tom Brady in Tampa Bay, and of course, Twitter reacted accordingly to the stunning news.

BOOM: Gronk reunited with TB in TB. No Belichick, no snow. The NFL's biggest story just got even bigger. Good luck stopping the Bucs' offense. Good luck keeping the Bucs from becoming 1st team ever to play in a home Super Bowl.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) April 21, 2020
