Freed up dollars should be spent on backing up LD54 when he is injured or needs a break.

Gronk is undoubtedly the GOAT TE, but cam brate is more than serviceable and can have a high season carry in the stats. I see us bringing a former vet PATRIOT TE I believe it’s available your report to Brady

Disappointment with gronkowski. I hope they will have another weapon.

One many does not make a team. Maybe a big part of this team, but Gronk doesn’t support the Bucs. Brady is more than capable of getting the ball into the hands of the guys we have on the team right now. I’m not worried and I didn’t think Gronk would come back anyway. Was good.

Sure, they can, but the Bucs will have to trade for a productive Vet TE.

Gronk will return in 39 days and break Brady’s record for the shortest retirement period of all time in the NFL.

The big question is whether they can win a Super Bowl with Todd Bowles. With a head coach winning percentage of around 38%, it’s a much bigger hill to climb than replacing Gronk.

“Team guys right now” is a pretty empty closet.
Opening day, this season:
WR3: Gage (aspiring to become WR2)

They gave that date because Gronk wants to see if we’re going to make the playoffs before we commit to coming back. I do not like it. Sets a bad precedent. Thank you for your services, enjoy your retirement.

No matter. Bowles will get an sb this year…or rack up a ton of wins.
It’s all about Brady.
That said, I don’t think we need a veteran TE. We can find a recruit. Brady will make it great.
Use the money saved on Suh.

With Brate, Otton and Kief we will have a good TE group. With all three, they can do just about anything Gronk could do this season, and not team up in doubles or triples.
The team will be fine.

The following article should be a list of the best FAs available.

I sounded the alarm bells months ago. It’s too late in free agency to find someone really good.
Who stays at TE? TEs that cannot block. Eric Ebron, Kyle Rudolph, Jared Cook. After that pure backup types. A sad list, but they have to make a move or trade at some point.
Pray that Cam Brate will become 3 times the player he once was, and a sudden pro bowler. That’s what it will take.

Brate, before Brady/Gronk was a reliable TE in the passing game. No QB star. It really doesn’t matter. Brady needs to be at his best if this team has a chance this year. Fingers crossed 🤞 he’s having the best season of his career and our defense can hold on!
June 21, 2022 at 11:04 p.m.
Brate slowed down, watch the tape.
Let’s be realistic and don’t fall into fantasy. This team needs a productive vet TE. They were already thin on slot options, and Gronk’s retirement means they will become more predictable, whether running or passing games.

Gronk’s fearsome physical build and speed also made him an excellent blocker. I just hope the guys we drafted can block as well (at the nfl level).
