Arizona Cardinals receiving core near NFC top
By Scott Allen
1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Rob Gronkowski
Overall if you are adding Gronk into the mix, there is no doubt this could be the toughest receiving group in the NFL in 2020. However, which Gronk will show up this season?
Gronk retired after the 2018 season but then once Tom Brady was traded to the Bucs, he had a change of heart and unretired to join Tampa. Will we see the 2018 version or closer to the 2011 version when he lead the NFL with 17 touchdown receptions and 1,327-yards receiving?
Godwin was a favorite of former Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston but will he have the same connection with his new quarterback? Evans is talented but did disappear at times last season.
Still, on paper, this is an excellent group. In 2019, just between Evans and Godwin, they caught 153 passes for 2,490-yards and 17 touchdowns. Add a healthy Gronk to the mix with Brady throwing them balls, it could be the most dangerous group in the NFL.
