Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski admits that he felt intrigued with whichever team he was going to face when he was peeping the score of the AFC Championship game.

On one hand, he would have a chance to beat the defending champions in the Chiefs. That scenario will play out in the end, but the other option was a chance to play his hometown Bills which was clearly an exciting prospect for him when he chatted via video conference from the Super Bowl this week.

“That would have been nuts,” Gronkowski said.

“The Chiefs? They’re the reigning champs. I mean, you’re playing the reigning champs. That’s already an incredible story… for myself, because I’m from Buffalo, I’m thinking, if Buffalo beats the Chiefs? I’m going to be playing my hometown,” Gronkowski said while covering his face.

Gronk went on to say people from Western New York were messaging him about the potential matchup throughout the postseason, not even just the week before Championship Sunday.

“All my friends were texting me when the playoffs started, ‘Bucs-Bills, seeing it now, Bucs-Bills,’ every week and every week we won, they won, ‘Bucs-Bills, Bucs-Bills,’ and I was like, ‘That would be like the craziest Super Bowl just for, you know, myself because I’m from Buffalo,” he added.

While the Bills won’t be his opponent on Sunday… there’s always next year. He did recently express a desire to return to Tampa in 2021 after coming out of retirement in 2020.
