What if Gronk does not retire?

Postby joeday » Tue Feb 20, 2018 10:38 am

I know there is a whole thread about the will he or won't he retire so I am not really looking for opinions on that. This is more of a "what if" situation. So for the Bombers in signature I planned to keep Bell, Gurley, AJG, Gronk and even though I had a lot of extra talent that I could package up there were no real feasible upgrades I could make. The plan was to just sit back and keep those 4 and throw back some good talent...easy peasy.

Then the Gronk stuff starts to swirl around and I wanted a safe backup plan. If I didn't make a move and he did retire I would be keeping Adam Thielen. While I like him, he seems like a risky keep. So I cooked up a 4 way deal (yep, a 4 way deal) where I basically gave up Ingram, Thielen, Funchess for Mike Evans. I was shocked I got him but if Gronk retires I am set with Bell, Gurley, AJG, Evans.

So my question is what if Gronk does not retire? Which two would you keep out of Gronk, AJG and Evans? BTW I know that if Gronk announces he is not retiring before our trade deadline I will try to make some moves but I just want some insight on what to do if I can't make any moves. Thanks!

If no announcement before trade deadline: Evans and AJG

If he doesn't retire: Evans and AJG

I would rather have two elite WRs and stream my TE.

Tough call, but even if he plays next year, there's speculation next year could be his last. Any chance of moving him for picks? may not get true value, but better than dropping

We can't trade picks until after keepers are submitted.

Evans and Green over Gronk regardless of retirement or not.

Evans>AJG>Gronk

I don't think Gronk retires now, but I do see him retiring early.
