UPDATED: ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that it’s official, Rob Gronkowski is returning to the NFL for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers where he will unite with Tom Brady. The Patriots are trading Gronkowski and a seventh-round draft pick to the Bucs for a fourth-round draft pick.

This makes it pretty unlikely that Gronkowski will be able to do anything physical for WWE going forward.

“Trade, pending physical: Patriots are trading TE Rob Gronkowski and a seventh-round pick to the Buccaneers for a fourth-round pick, source tells ESPN.”

ORIGINAL: ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are talking about a trade for Rob Gronkowski which would see Gronkowski return to the NFL to play alongside Tom Brady in Tampa Bay. Gronk and Brady were teammates on the Patriots. If he returned to football, he would likely no longer be able to do anything physical for WWE. Gronk has been expected to work SummerSlam in Boston this August.

“Patriots and Buccaneers have been discussing a trade for retired TE Rob Gronkowski, per league sources. Gronkowski has one year and $10 million left on his contract. But the two sides are, and have been talking, prior to Thursday’s draft.”

– Eddie and Primo Colon (Primo and Epico) are set to make their first appearances since being released by WWE at the October 3rd Legends of the Ring convention in New Jersey.
