Their run ended in the NFC Divisional Round game. And many predicted that it was the end of Tom Brady’s career in the NFL. Tom Brady did announce his retirement, but he is back again to play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next season.

Due to Brady’s return, many players who would sign elsewhere also returned to the Buccaneers. However, one essential piece of the Bucs has still not committed to the team yet for the next season. Rob Gronkowski, the Tight End who is often regarded as Brady’s favorite receiver, hasn’t made up his mind yet for the next season.

Can Brady and Gronk lead the Bucs to another Super Bowl title?

If Rob Gronkowski decides to return to play for the Bucs next season, unsurprisingly the Bucs will be the favorites to win it all. The NFC is weak in the upcoming season with all the teams losing their key players.

This gives a huge advantage to the Bucs, as they already have their core. They just need Gronk back, and a new WR to replace Antonio Brown. If the front office is successful in pulling something out of the bag in draft or via trade, Brady might add up another Super Bowl to his resume.
