Bucs making this move could help solve offensive problems, Hall of Famer says
To say the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense is in trouble is an understatement.
The Buccaneers enter their Week 8 game Thursday night against the Baltimore Ravens ranked No. 26 in points scored and No. 22 in yards gained. The team has just three points against the Carolina Panthers and has now lost four of its last five games.

As pundits debate how to fix Tampa Bay’s infraction, Pro Football Hall of Famer Warren Moon has offered a suggestion: Bring back Rob Gronkowski. The former NFL quarterback told TMZ Sports on Tuesday that he thinks the often-reliable tight end is just what the offense needs to address its woes.
“He was a security blanket during [Brady] for so long,” Moon said of Gronkowski. “Anytime there’s a key play to make, especially in the red zone or whatever – and they struggled to score in the red zone last week – that’s the guy he would usually go to, Rob Gronkowski.”

Gronkowski retired in June after spending several years with the Buccaneers and New England Patriots. He told TMZ Sports in April that he would only return to the league if it was with Tampa Bay.
He has since celebrated his retirement this summer at the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. He told Fox News Digital in September that he was still trying to stay active.

“It’s going well,” he said of his retirement. “I play basketball a lot. I work out. I like to stay active. Once in a while throw a party here and there just to keep the fun going.”
