‘Gronk’ Calls Out Popular Buffalo Bill, Predicts Grim Future with Team [WATCH]
When asked recently about Buffalo Bills' WR Stefon Diggs, former NFL tight end Rob Gronkowski did NOT hold back in his answer.
The long-time New England Patriot, and native of Upstate New York, was asked about the star wideout during a recent appearance on Kay Adams' 'Up & Adams' TV show. Instead of providing a light-hearted, humorous answer, like most of us have come to expect from Gronk, he instead provided a more serious, somewhat scathing response.
Here's what he said, and what he believes will happen next between Diggs and the Bills.
Rob Gronkowski Slams Stefon Diggs' Antics, Predicts Grim Future in Buffalo
Here is the clip from Gronk's recent appearance on Adams' FanDuel TV show. Take a look:
There are two parts to this answer, each of which deserves its own breakdown.
First, let's discuss Gronk's comments on the Diggs brothers, Stefon and Trevon. Ever since Diggs' now-infamous meltdown on the sidelines during the Bills' Divisional Round defeat to the Bengals last season, some have felt that Diggs has had one foot "out the door" in Buffalo.
That speculation has been further fueled by comments made by Stefon's brother, Trevon, who plays for the Dallas Cowboys, and wants to reunite with his brother on America's team.
Gronk's argument here, which is a version of the saying the grass isn't always greener on the other side, is a poignant one. Diggs could, in theory, force the Bills to trade him to another team if he was that unhappy with his situation in Buffalo.
That said, is there a team in the NFL who is a) in-need of a star wide receiver, who is also b) in a better position than Buffalo to compete for a Super Bowl in 2023 or 2024? I cannot think of said team.
Now, to the second part of the answer, where he states that he believes Diggs will not be in Buffalo after this season.
Though I think it would be foolish for both sides to part ways, I would have to agree with Gronkowski on his answer here. Unless Buffalo, after firing offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey, turns their season around and vaults themselves back into contention, I could easily see this relationship souring past the point of no-return.
Then, the question becomes this: which team will be willing to take a disgruntled Stefon Diggs, who will be 30 years old when this happens, and pay his $24 million annual salary?
As talented as he is, the list of suitors probably won't be as long as Diggs may want to believe.
