Rob Gronkowski’s future in the NFL is still a bit uncertain. With Tom Brady now retired and the tight end set to hit free agency, he could go in a couple of different directions. He could elect to follow Brady and retire for the second time in his career, return to the Buccaneers, or forge a new path with another team in the NFL. If it’s that latter route he decides to go down, one team that will be calling Gronkowski is the Buffalo Bills.
Tim Graham of The Athletic reports that Buffalo is open to signing Gronkowski as a free agent if he intends to continue his career. Gronkowski is from Amherst, New York, and grew up a fan of the Bills. Now, Graham reports that there is hope in the Buffalo organization that he would be open to finishing out his career with his hometown team.
It should be noted that the 32-year-old said that he would be taking some time before ultimately deciding on his future in the NFL back in late January. With free agency set to open up in roughly two weeks, it would appear like rubber is set to meet the road in a decision from Gronkowski.
