The Buffalo Bills have interest in signing tight end Rob Gronkowski once again. According to The Athletic, the Bills will pursue the future Hall of Famer once more this offseason. Let's have a look at the whole story.
There are a few layers. Plenty of that answer might have to do with offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey. The 33-year-old has retired himself once before, but in Buffalo, he would not play No. 1 tight-end snaps. Those would continue to go to Dawson Knox, but if "Gronk" talks to the Bills and sees a fit-it's possible.
This also isn't the first time that the Bills have pursued the tight end as he considered signing with the team last offseason before re-upping with Tampa Bay. According to reports at the time, Buffalo was offering a similar deal to the one-year, $8 million deal worth up to $10 million in incentives Gronkowski ultimately signed with the Bucs. In the end, however, he decided to stay with Brady for what proved to be the final year of his career.
More About Gronkowski
Gronkowski originally came into the league as a second-round draft pick of the New England Patriots and would blossom into arguably the greatest tight end in league history during his time in Foxborough. Over his career, Gronkowski would particularly torment the Bills because they passed on him twice at the draft when he was coming into the league. In 16 career games against the Bills, he has totaled 74 receptions for 1,132 yards and 12 touchdowns. Those numbers are the highest of his career against any single opponent.
