Panthers have hilarious reaction to Rob Gronkowski’s return
The rest of the NFL is not exactly thrilled to see Rob Gronkowski back, and the Carolina Panthers are one great illustration of that.
In response to the news Tuesday that the superstar tight end was coming out of retirement and reuniting with Tom Brady in Tampa Bay, the Panthers took to Twitter to give their hilarious reaction. They tweeted a video of Gronkowski wreaking some havoc during last winter’s New Year’s Eve special on FOX as host Steve Harvey expressed his dismay by saying, “Why is he here? Why are you here?!?” Have a look:

The tweet is especially funny considering that the Panthers are in the same NFC South division as the Buccaneers and will now have to face Gronkowski multiple times a year. With New Orleans winning the division last season and Atlanta recently adding Todd Gurley, Tampa Bay’s big offseason improvement means that making the playoffs will be close to impossible for Carolina.
Adding some insult to injury for the Panthers is also the fact that they will no longer have one of their top weapons for stopping Gronkowski.
