Toughest Tight Ends in 2020 – Number 4: Rob Gronkowski
The Buccaneers went from zero to 100 this offseason when they were able to sign Tom Brady and get his right hand man Rob Gronkowski on their roster for 2020 and potentially a few more years.
Gronkowski spent the 2019 season out of football and it sounded like that was a good decision, as he suffered from internal bleeding during his playing career. So, naturally, he’d want to come back and go through that again. (Sarcasm)
The reason I couldn’t put Gronk any higher on this list is because he spent a year out of football. He might not be that same tight end we saw for so many years in New England, even if he does have his same quarterback.
The Chiefs travel to Tampa Bay to face Gronkowski and the Gronkateers in week 12.
Toughest Tight Ends in 2020 – Number 3: Hunter Henry
Hunter Henry is a talented tight end, but his biggest problem is that the guy can’t stay healthy. He missed all of 2018 due to injury and missed another four games this past season as well.
When Henry is on the field, he’s dominant. He might have only started 12 games last season, but the former Arkansas product still garnered 55 receptions for 652 yards and five touchdowns. That was his career high in receiving yards.
The Chargers might have a new look in 2020, but Henry is going to be the same talented player he has been since the Bolts took him in the second round of the 2016 draft. He’ll get two shots to pad his stats against the Chiefs in 2020 – weeks two and 17.
