After missing a sizeable chunk of the regular season, fans would be delighted to know Rob Gronkowski has returned to practice.

Fans have waited for this moment for weeks, although their teams form hasn’t dipped in the slightest. However, one can only shudder at the thought of how good Tampa Bay’s offense would be once Gronkowski returns to the starting line-up. There’s no news regarding when he’ll return, but returning to practice is a big up for the Bucs. Along with him, even Richard Sherman and Lavonte David returned.

Without Gronkowski, Tom Brady and the Buccaneers have won every single game they’ve played. The tight end went down just before a heavyweight clash against New England Patriots, forcing him to miss his homecoming fixture. But amidst the buzz surrounding Brady’s return, Gronk’s injury flew under the radar.

Over time, people gained more clarity about his situation and the severity of the injury. In the meantime, Antonio Brown, Leonard Fournette, Mike Evans and OJ Howard stepped up big time. They combined with Brady and completely destroyed oppositions. The Buccaneers took down Florida rivals Miami in epic fashion, and most recently trounced Justin Fields’ Chicago Bears.

With Gronkowski back in the side, the Bucs will look like the favorites to make it all the way to the Super Bowl. After all, Tom Brady has missed his favorite target on the field. The GOAT and Gronk’s partnership is second to none, and once they take the field, oppositions beware.

These are scary times for the rest of the league. With New Orleans Saints coming up next, Tampa Bay Buccaneers look set to swallow their opponents whole. If Rob Gronkowski does end up playing, it will be the end of Jameis Winston and Co; and probably even their hopes to clinch the NFC South.
