WWE 247 Champion Rob Gronkowski returning to play in the NFL as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers agged to a trade with the New England Patriots ahead of Thursday’s NFL Draft.
The NFL issued a mobile alert this afternoon that confirms the Patriots have agreed to send the retired tight-end and a seventh round Draft pick to the Bucs in exchange for a fourth round pick.
We should know more about Gronk’s NFL future later this week. As noted, he still has 1 year and $10 million left on his NFL contract with the Patriots.
Gronk recently inked a deal with WWE, reportedly to wrestle for the company. He had been rumored for a big match at SummerSlam in Boston this August, but there’s no word yet on how this will change things.
As seen below, WWE tweeted on Gronk’s NFL return and wrote, “#247Champion @RobGronkowski is on the move!!!”
