As such, the Cowboys will need to add to the group. With such little cap space, they will not be in play for the big names. That means no Evan Engram or Robert Tonyan, who are likely to get a handsome paycheck. However, there is one intriguing name that sticks out in . If he elects not to retire, could he be on the Cowboys' radar?

Gronkowski Has A Superstar Pedigree

A household name at this point, Gronkowski's legacy is well established. A four-time All-Pro selection and four-time Super Bowl Champion, “Gronk” is considered by many to be the greatest tight end of all time. However, at the start of the , he will be 33 years old.

He isn’t what he once was. A little long in the tooth. But sure would love to have him on my team. One of the top handful best TEs of all time.

But it won’t happen. Cowboys seem determined to overpay for Schultz.

Gronk to the Cowboys will never happen. There are better options in the market or through the draft. Why overpay for a guy who is way past his prime.

Who says he would be overpaid? Do you know the amount he would accept? No. No one does.

Considering he was quite happily retired until his longtime best bud coaxed him back into the game, I doubt he’s going to play for a “team friendly” deal for anyone else. And especially not for a team with the anti-Brady at QB.

I mean, this is the DUMBEST speculation I’ve ever seen. If you haven’t followed the Cowboys since Stephen took over it’s still dumb. I’m guessing Insidethestar pays by the article?
