TAMPA, Fla. (WKYT) -- The New England Patriots have agreed to trade Rob Gronkowski to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Pending a physical, this deal would reunite the retired tight end with his former quarterback Tom Brady.

Gronkowski's agent Drew Rosenhaus confirmed this news with ESPN on Tuesday afternoon.

New England will receive a fourth-round pick in the NFL Draft and the Buccaneers will receive a seventh-round pick in the trade.
