The one thing I’ll remember Gronk for is the complete tight end that he was. Not only was he a great route runner and had great hands, but he was also clutch in the most-needed moments.

His blocking is the best at the tight end position in my book. In my opinion, he is the best tight end at blocking to ever play the game. The 2020 NFL Wildcard Playoff game versus Washington in 2020 comes to mind. In that game, Gronk put on a blocking clinic and schooled Chase Young.

Gronk is the ultimate teammate. He will be missed. Thanks for all that you did for the Buccaneers and for helping us win a Super Bowl. Enjoy the next chapter of your life.
