Around 2:30 pm, reports were coming out that retired NFL tight end Rob Gronkowski was ready to come back to the NFL. It appears that it's finally happening.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that pending a physical, the New England Patriots are trading Gronkowski to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Patriots will receive a fourth round pick while the Buccaneers also get a seventh round pick.
Rumors have been swirling around since Gronkowski announced his retirement last March. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Gronkowski was looking to be traded to Tampa Bay to rejoin Tom Brady. Gronkowski currently has one year...

Vince McMahon had been reported to be willing to put around $500 million into the league, but according to Forbes, his net worth has dropped $1B in the last year.
After the XFL suspended day to day operations on Friday, there was still hope that the league would return in 2021. This breaking news makes that very...
Multiple sources (ESPN’s Field Yates and Kevin Seifert) have confirmed that the XFL is suspending “day to day operations” and will be terminating the majority of their employees.
XFL COO Jeffery Pollock held a conference call to read a statement and per ESPN’s Field Yates, Pollock said employees were informed of the decision on Friday.

In an audio of the call from Jeffrey Pollack to employees, he said “it’s been no...
New York Yankees starting pitcher Luis Severino will miss the 2020 season, as it was announced today he'll need Tommy John surgery.
The Yankees made the biggest splash in free agency when they signed former Houston Astros ace Gerrit Cole to a record-setting nine-year, $32 million deal. But the rest of their starting rotation has thinned considerably since then.
Severino was shut down a week ago after complaining about forearm discomfort. It's the same discomfort the 26-year-old has felt since the American League Championship Series against the Astros last season.
A two-time All-Star, Severino was expected to be the No. 2 starter for...
On Tuesday evening, the Boston Red Sox finalized the framework of a three-team trade involving former MVP Mookie Betts. The Los Angeles Dodgers and Minnesota Twins each participated in this transaction.
Pending physicals, the Red Sox sent Betts and left-handed pitcher David Price to Los Angeles for outfielder Alex Verdugo. Minnesota received starting pitcher Kenta Maeda and shipped pitching prospect Brusdar Graterol to Boston.
Betts Trade: Boston Money Dump
The trade of Betts from Boston's perspective is financially motivated. The former AL MVP remains among the most accomplished young talents in the game, so to deal him at the age of 27...
Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly announced his retirement from the NFL Tuesday night at the age of 28.
"I think now is the right chance for me to move on," Kuechly said in a statement on the Panthers' Twitter page. "It makes me sad because I love playing this game, I've played it since I was a kid. It's my favorite thing in the world to do. The memories I have from this place and this organization and being on the field with these guys – they'll never go away."
"In my heart I know it's the right thing to do… There's...
In a move that felt like it would never happen, the Dallas Cowboys and head coach Jason Garrett have agreed to part ways. Garrett's contract was set to expire on January 14th.
This move made sense, but the Cowboys drew out the process like it was a Made-for-TV drama that would air on the Lifetime Network.
Jason Garrett finishes with a record of 87-70, but finished 2019 with a record of 8-8 and failed to make the playoffs for the third time in five seasons.
It still remains unclear who will take over for Jason Garrett, although Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley...
