Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski has ended his yearlong retirement to play alongside Tom Brady, and the betting odds say he’s poised for a big year.

Gronk is the favorite to win the NFL’s comeback player of the year award. At DraftKings, his odds are +300.

After Gronk is Ben Roethlisberger, who was limited to two games last year with an elbow injury. Roethlisberger’s odds are close behind Gronk’s at +400.

The longer shots include Alex Smith, Matthew Stafford and J.J. Watt, all of whom are at +700. Derwin James is at +1200 and A.J. Green is at +1400.

Antonio Brown, who is highly unlikely to get an opportunity to make a career comeback, is listed at +2000.

Other players at +2000 include Nick Foles, Myles Garrett, Todd Gurley and Cam Newton.

The longest odds on the board belong to Mitchell Trubisky, who’s at +10,000. If you think Trubisky is going to have a big season for the Bears, you may be able to make a lot of money off that prediction. But probably not.
