Tom Brady Refused To Leave Game Until He Made Sure Rob Gronkowski Got $500k Incentive

Tom Brady made sure Rob Gronkowski got paid on Sunday.

Going into the Bucs-Panthers game, Gronkowski had to pick up 7 catches for $500k in incentive money and 85 yards for another $500k.

Gronk was easily able to pick up 85 yards through three quarters.

Late in the fourth quarter, Gronk needed one more catch to get his $500k for catches, and Brady refused to let Arians bench him until he made sure his teammate got his bonus.

Brady immediately sat out as soon as Gronk cleared his incentive.
