After playing nine seasons with the New England Patriots, Robert Gronkowski, arguably one of the best tight ends in the NFL, has been traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Over the past decade, the New England Patriots have risen to be an NFL powerhouse. Gronkowski, more commonly referred to as “Gronk,” has helped the Patriots secure three Super Bowl victories. This trade has been especially controversial because Gronk is moving to a team that has had a significantly lower success rate than the Patriots. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have not won a Super Bowl since 2002 or even made it to the playoffs since 2007. NFL followers have speculated that Gronk is making the move to the Buccaneers because his fellow teammate Tom Brady also announced he would be joining Tampa Bay shortly before. Lots of people (mostly Patriots fans) are upset that Gronk is leaving the Patriots, especially because they think it is just to follow Tom Brady. Some people, however, are excited for the reunion of this power-duo and think they can turn the Tampa Bay Buccaneers around!

Do you agree with me that with #TomBrady and #Gronk reunited down south this makes the #TampaBayBuccaneers the most interesting and compelling franchise in all of sports? Here's my column: https://t.co/2WMAkcgIvq pic.twitter.com/QTrqMYjPX3
