When Tom Brady announced his retirement from the game of football, everyone thought Rob Gronkowski would be next.
However, the former New England Patriots star is still a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers – for now. He’ll be a free agent once the 2022 league year officially kicks off in a just a couple weeks.
With Gronk nearing the free agent market, at least one NFL team has expressed interest in signing him. According to Tim Graham of the Athletic, the Buffalo Bills are interested in Gronk.
“Word here at the NFL Scouting Combine is that if Gronkowski wants to keep playing, the Bills still are open to adding the Amherst, N.Y., native to their offense,” Graham wrote.

According to the report, the Bills spoke with Gronk last season, but he opted to sign with the Buccaneers instead.
“The Bills spoke with the surefire first-ballot Pro Football Hall of Famer last spring but discovered he wanted to keep playing with Tom Brady, who retired last month. Gronkowski re-signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for one year at $8 million,” Graham said.
Pairing Gronk with Josh Allen would make a dangerous offense even more potent.
