TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue to bring in more reasons for fans to be excited about this offseason.

On Tuesday, the Bucs landed star tight end Rob Gronkowski and a sevent-round draft pick via a trade with the New England Patriots. Tampa Bay will send a fourth-round pick to New England.

The trade not only brings Gronkowski, who turns 31 in May, out of retirement but also reunites him with his longtime quarterback Tom Brady.

Brady shocked the NFL world earlier this offseason by leaving the Patriots to go sign with the Bucs.

As a duo, "Gronk" and Brady won three Super Bowl together (XLIX, LI, LIII) with New England. Gronkowski joins an already loaded passing game with Pro Bowl wide receivers Mike Evans and Chris Godwin.
