2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Rob Gronkowski is the unquestioned tight-end goat. The numbers and accolades speak for themselves. With five Pro Bowl selections, four All-Pro nods, and three Super Bowl rings – Gronk stands alone.

He’s also getting more and more comfortable in Tampa. In his first year with the Buccaneers, Gronk ended the regular season with 623 receiving yards. He jumped up to 802 this year.

Gronk appears fresh and energetic but he’s also indecisive. As reported by Greg Auman of The Athletic, Gronk would be open to returning to the Buccaneers even if Tom Brady hung up his cleats. Still, that isn’t a concrete answer.

Uzomah isn’t in the same class as Gronkowski but he’s a solid option for a team that could suddenly find themselves with a gaping hole at the position thanks to his second unexpected retirement.
