Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowksi will be on the same football field whenever the 2020 NFL season kicks off.

Two year ago, that wouldn't have been a big deal. However, after Gronk announced his retirement from the league after the 2018 season, his NFL future was murky at best.

Their reunion seemed even further away after Tom Brady left the New England Patriots and signed a two-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And yet, they came back together after all.

The Patriots traded Gronk and a seventh-round pick to the Buccaneers for a fourth-round pick in the upcoming draft. After a few hours of letting the trade sink in, Brady finally reacted to the trade news.

It looks like he's ready to run it back with his star tight end.

Gronk and Brady were an unstoppable force in New England for nearly a decade. Gronk's 79 regular-season touchdowns from 2010-19 were the most by any player.

Brady enters the 2020 season with arguably the best weapons of his career - with respect to Randy Moss. Chris Godwin and Mike Evans are arguably the best wide receiver tandem in the NFL.

Add Gronk and fellow tight ends O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate into the mix and the Buccaneers have an offense to be feared.
