Tight end joins Tom Brady in Tampa Bay: says he’s ready to play again
BY LORENZO RECUPERO
In a development completely shocking to all New England sports fans, Rob “Gronk” Gronkowski is back from retirement.
But his return won’t be spent with the Patriots.
The entire NFL world was rattled again by news coming out of New England. First it was the greatest quarterback to ever play the game who made his departure, and now the greatest tight to ever play the game will officially be picking up his things and moving on as well.
After flirting with a return for a full season and play- ing with the emotions of all New Englanders, Gronk announced Tuesday he will come out of retirement — to play ball with Tom Brady down south.
The Patriots have reportedly agreed to ship him and a 7th round pick down to Tam- pa for a fourth round pick, according to reports.
In a statement to Fox Sports, Gronk said this:
“I’m back. I always said when I have that feeling and it feels right, I will be ready to take the field again. And I have that feeling. I’m ready.”
Brady is already set to dawn #12 elsewhere for the first time in 20 years and Gronk is feeling ready to return to greatness with him.
But the real question for all us here in New England is, are we ready to see them together again?
