The New England Patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have reportedly agreed a trade deal which will see Rob Gronkowski join the Florida franchise.
On Tuesday, it was said that Gronkowski told the Patriots that he wanted to come out of retirement but in a twist to play for the Buccaneers.
The reason: He hopes to play once again with Tom Brady.
Aged 29, Gronkowski retired from football in March of last year.

Brady joined the Bucs last month on a two-year deal after leaving New England, the team which he played with for 20 years.
A trade deal was required as Gronkowski still had a year to run on his deal with the Patriots.
