Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski have brought their chemistry to Tampa.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a huge change this offseason as the team looks to return to the postseason for the first time since 2008. Jameis Winston was let go and Tom Brady was brought in to turn things around. They also convinced Rob Gronkowski to come out of retirement and chase another Super Bowl with his friend.
The Bucs finished a disappointing 7-9 last season and it became clear they needed a boost on offense, at least in terms of efficiency. Winston had 30 interceptions and was the king of killing momentum. Now Brady is under center, and a video from training camp shows off his chemistry with Gronk that will have fans in Florida feeling like they are watching a brand-new team.
Tom Brady and Gronk are back
The Buccaneers offense already has a dominant weapon at receiver in Mike Evans. Chris Godwin also went off for 1,333 yards last season. However, Brady may not have much chemistry with either player just yet. That is where Gronkowski comes into play.
The tight end was with the New England Patriots from 2010-18 and amassed 7,861 yards and 79 touchdowns. He also has 1,163 career postseason receiving yards with Brady as his quarterback.
The two form one of the most successful duos in NFL history, and the video from camp shows that they have not lost any of their chemistry. They likely also brought a new attitude to the team that was missing since Jon Gruden led the franchise to a Super Bowl victory during the 2002 season.
Some Hall-of-Famers are relegated to new teams at the end of their careers just to collect a paycheck. However, Brady and Gronkowski appear to be doing just fine and should provide plenty of highlights together in 2020.
