Buffalo Bills Are Favorites to Land Rob Gronkowski
The start of the NFL free agency period begins in just over two weeks, with the "legal" tampering period starting a couple of days prior.
The NFL Draft is just 60 days away if you're wondering.
The most entertaining part of the NFL offseason is about to begin. The Buffalo Bills will most definitely be a part of that chaos, even though they're projected to not have hardly any cap room. General manager Brandon Beane is expected to restructure current long-term contracts and maybe even release veteran players who are deemed expendable.
Cornerback, wide receiver and offensive line are just a few positions that will need addressed by the Bills this offseason, but tight end is a position many Bills fans are finally comfortable with.
Dawson Knox had a breakthrough season in 2021. Knox caught 49 passes on 71 targets for 9 touchdowns. Maybe the depth can be addressed, but the Bills appear to have their tight end of the present and future.
That has not stopped the oddsmakers' from listing the Bills as the favorite to land a hometown product and a future Hall of Famer.
Bookies dot com listed the Bills as the favorite to land current Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Gronkowski is 32 years old and is slated to become an unrestricted free agent on March 16th when the new league year begins. He caught 55 passes for over 800 yards in just 12 games last season for Tampa.
Gronkowski could decide to retire once again, and that's a very real possibility, since Tom Brady retired and it's no guarantee that players like Chris Godwin and Leonard Fournette are back in Tampa.
Gronkowski is from Buffalo and went to Williamsville North High School. He's considered one of the greatest tight ends in NFL history and him coming back to his hometown to close out his career would be a storybook ending, and the Bills are Super Bowl ready in 2022.
There are some Bills fans who rather not have Gronk here, because of what he did to Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White a few seasons ago, when he slammed the back of his head on the turf at Highmark Stadium, and the fact he played so long with Brady and the New England Patriots.
