While his stats may not be quite to the level of what we saw early in Gronk’s career, however, the fun-loving and energetic tight end from Amherst, NY, is seeing a resurgence of sorts.
In 2020, Gronk has been a big part of the Buccaneers’ success. This year, he has 45 receptions for 623 yards and seven touchdowns. However, this postseason has been a quiet one, having just 43 yards on two catches.
While he may not be the downfield threat he once was, his impact can still be felt in a major way. Gronk possesses the ability to make the big catch when needed, plus his extensive playoff and Super Bowl experience is proving to be beneficial to this organization so far.
Come Sunday evening, he will be vying for his fourth Super Bowl win, however, it won’t come easy. The Buccaneers’ competition will be steep as they face the heavily favored and defending Super Bowl champion, the Kansas City Chiefs.
Led by NFL star Patrick Mahomes and a great supporting cast, the Chiefs will likely have the upper hand and will be riding the momentum of their Super Bowl LIV win.
As for Tampa Bay, the Buccaneers’ will rely on plenty of veteran experience. Quarterback Tom Brady is now 43 and will look to wield his team to yet another Super Bowl win. Tom is seeking his seventh Super Bowl victory.

At Zona Zealots, we’re excited to see Gronk play this Sunday and will be rooting for him to get Super Bowl win number four! As always, Bear Down, Arizona!
