The Tampa Bay Buccaneers‘ offseason is like one season of a television series.
Too many plot twists keep fans and football experts at the edge of their seats.
First, Tom Brady announced his retirement and took it back after 40 days.
There was also the threat of losing most of their stars because of their starting quarterback’s departure.
Yet as the team geared towards offseason workouts, Bruce Arians resigned as head coach, and Todd Bowles took over.
Several speculations were raised regarding his transfer to a front-office role.
However, his players will never forget him as their coach, including Rob Gronkowski.

The All-Pro tight end said, “Thanks for the last 2 great years Coach, hopefully they let you keep riding around in your cart always keeping it real.”
While Arians won’t call the shots on the sidelines anymore, he will still be around the team as a senior football consultant.
His job description remains unknown, but he will be working closely with general manager Jason Licht.
Gronkowski and Arians were part of the team that won Super Bowl LV at their home field, Raymond James Stadium, against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Gronk Remains Unsigned
Brady recruited Gronkowski to Tampa Bay, and their partnership brought immediate success to the franchise.
But as of writing, the five-time Pro Bowler is still a free agent.
Injuries led him to play only 12 regular-season games but still finished with 802 yards and six touchdowns.
The Buccaneers might bump Cameron Brate to the top of the tight end depth chart.
In that case, Gronkowski might play with another quarterback for the first time in his career if Tampa Bay does not bring him back.
