Rob Gronkowski Is Asked About The Rumors That He’ll Join Brady On The Bucs And Says ‘You Never Know’
Ever since Tom Brady signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers there have been rumors swirling about which players would likely follow Tompa Brady to Tampa Bay and one of those names that keep coming up is retired future Hall of Famer Rob Gronkowski.
From the outside, Gronk seems very comfortably retired from the NFL. He’s signed a deal with WWE and was welcomed with open arms by the professional wrestling world. To think that he’d throw away his new lifestyle to come play with Tom Brady in Tampa seems odd but it’s not so crazy that it doesn’t seem believable.
Gronk was a guest on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen where Andy asked him straight up about those rumors and if he’d come out of retirement. Gronk also discusses which Super Bowl team was the easiest to beat and some other football questions to keep us entertained while there isn’t much else going on:
Here’s Gronk’s answer if you weren’t able to watch that clip:
“The day that I retired, within 24 hours there was already rumors that I was coming out of retirement,” he told Cohen. “I’m feeling good right now, I’m happy where I’m at and you just never know, man. You just never know. You never know. I’m not totally done, I like to stay in shape, but I’ve gotta get that feeling back.”
I’m a Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan and I didn’t think there was a shot in hell the Bucs would ever land Tom Brady. Him leaving New England seemed unfathomable to me. So I guess when you compare the likelihood of the Bucs landing Brady from the Patriots to the likelihood that Gronk comes out of retirement to play for Tampa Bay it does seem like it’s within the realm of possibility.
I’m not even optimistic that we’ll have an NFL season this year. Getting Brady on the Bucs seems too surreal. Getting Brady on the Bucs and then having the NFL season canceled seems like a much more believable narrative than the Bucs getting Brady out of nowhere and suddenly becoming a contender. That’s too good to be true.
