If you thought Rob Gronkowski was done putting on helmets and jerseys, you were clearly mistaken.
According to the NFL, the New England Patriots have agreed to trade Gronk to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a fourth-round draft pick.
So what does this mean for those who may not watch ESPN every night? Don’t worry, we’re not judging. It means Gronk and Tom Brady are going to be reunited and playing on the same football team again for the 2020-2021 season.
While both players haven’t commented on the news, this dynamic duo has captured the attention of both football and pop culture fans alike with their friendship and chemistry on and off the field. In fact, the two recently complimented each other about their manhood. We told you these aren’t your average teammates.
Earlier this week, Gronk appeared on Watch What Happens Live where Andy Cohen asked him about the rumors that he could be coming out of retirement.
Gronk continued, “I’m a weapon. I feel like I can stretch the field pretty good and help open up the underneath.”
But enough sports talk. It’s safe to say lots of fans can’t get over the bond Gronk shares with Tom. And the possibility of seeing it later this season is likely some much needed good news for sports fans.
Tom later told WEEI, “Well, I think that speaks to our relationship and I feel as strongly about him as he does about me. I love the guy. He has had a big impact on my career personally, professionally. Like I said, I am very lucky to play with him.”
