According to multiple reports, the New England Patriots are considering trading All-Pro TE Rob Gronkowski due to his off the field antics. While rumors have been swirling about Gronk’s retirement for most of the offseason, Gronk will reportedly return to the Patriots in 2018 as long as Tom Brady continues to play as well.
In the video above and below, we break down the top 5 teams that Gronk could be traded to.

The Los Angeles Rams make our list due to their reported desire to bring in another star on offense and fill their current hole at TE. We know the Rams have expressed interest in picking up Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr., however Gronkowski would be a much cheaper option.
Next, we have the Detroit Lions with former Patriots DC Matt Patricia at the helm. Gronk would give Matthew Stafford the best weapon he’s ever had and would be an incredible red zone target.
Our 3rd team is the Seattle Seahawks, who are in desperate need of a TE after the departure of Jimmy Graham to the Green Bay Packers. Gronk would be the best weapon Russell Wilson has ever had and would be an incredible red zone option for them.
At 4, we have the San Francisco 49ers. While TEs don't usually thrive in Kyle Shanahan's offensive system, he's never had a TE of Gronk's size and skill, so we think he would find an efficient way to make it work.
Lastly, we have the Houston Texans. They are the only AFC team on our list due to Bill Belichick's history of not trading star players inside the conference. Having Deshaun Watson, Deandre Hopkins and Rob Gronkowski on the same offense is sure to make one of the best offenses in the entire NFL.
Our full list of teams can be seen below:
- Los Angeles Rams
- Detroit Lions
- Seattle Seahawks
- San Francisco 49ers
- Houston Texans
