Bucs TE Jordan Leggett Offers Rob Gronkowski No. 87 Jersey For A Price


When Tom Brady made the switch from the New England Patriots to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, some questioned whether or not he’d get to keep his number.

Well, the quarterback got to keep his No. 12. Now, it looks like he’ll also get to keep his favorite target, with tight end Rob Gronkowski coming out of retirement with his rights traded to the Bucs.

And it looks like Gronkowski will get to keep his famous No. 87 as well.

The digits are currently worn by Jordan Leggett, a tight end on the Tampa Bay roster who didn’t appear in a game last year. In fact, he had a proposition for Gronkowski.

“Hey @RobGronkowski I?ll give you #87 for 1 million. ?,” Leggett tweeted, followed by a message welcoming the future Hall of Famer to the Buccaneers.

He was kidding, of course, and joked that when it’s all said and done, he’d probably be the one who ended up paying up.

The Buccaneers on Tuesday announced the trade was completed, getting Gronkowski and a seventh-round draft pick in exchange for a fourth-rounder.
