      Split from another thread. This guy clearly has not lived up to his billing as a first round pick. He’s flashed potential in games but has finished every season on IR. This year, he’s had a chance to step up in Gronk’s absence and has failed to do so. His rookie contract is up at the end of this year.

      The question is, do you bring him back at a decent salary or move on from him? I say move on. Brady has maybe one more year left after this and I can see Gronk coming back for that one more year. Brate is a solid #2. The beauty is the 2022 draft class is deep with tight ends, and I mean DEEP. The Bucs could snag a Pro Bowl caliber tight end in the third or even fourth round to learn under Gronk next year then unleash in 2023.

      I’ve been pushing for the Bucs to get rid of him for the past two years or so.

      As Denny Green might say “He’s not what we thought he was!”

      He should of been traded years ago. It’s beyond time to move on.

      He’s getting like 7 snaps so idk anymore if it’s the injury or he’s in the doghouse or what…

      But I do know that he blocks well and is far more athletic than Brate.

      In the end someone will likely overpay for his potential… maybe Jax or Chicago

      yeah he wont be re-signed this offseason that’s for sure

      there’s probably 15 other guys on the TO DO list prior to even considering him for a vet min deal

      plus he probably wants to get a fresh start somewhere else anyway where he’d get more playing time

      i dont think he has the same bond that most of the guys do since he was out for the superbowl run

      He can’t hold Brates jock.

        He was awesome at Bama. How were we to know he’d suck in the NFL

      Did he play at all against the Colts, seriously, I don’t remember seeing him in the game?

      I’m gonna go out on a limb and say he will be much more productive elsewhere.

      Think he’s simply in the doghouse…

      He’ll never live up to his 1st round status unfortunately… which is why drafting positions like RB or TE or S in the first comes with some major risk.

      Those positions are bettered suited in rd 2-3.

      Drafting any position in the first round is a major risk. There have been a lot of busts at all positions taken in the first round.

      The guy tore his Achilles a year ago. That is a year + recovery time. No surprise that he lacks burst.

      What did people expect out of him this year?

      Its too bad he looked poised to have a nice year prior to the injury.

      He will be gone next year and I hope he regains some of his burst and does well for another team.

      It’s unfortunate that this year is a contract year for him.

      That’s true, but one could say it’s good for the team though.

      Keep in mind he is trying to come back from an injury most players don’t with success.

      I know im in the minority, but id like to have him back for the right price. Gronk will only be here another year or two max.

      You probably want Matt Gay back too. C’mon man, Howard needs to go regardless.
