Maybe Bill Belichick and Rob Gronkowski hated each other during the offseason, or maybe they didn’t.
Either way, the New England Patriots tight end and head coach now appear on good terms.

Not exactly the most natural interaction, but hey, you’ll take what you can get with The Hoodie.
This is far from the only notable mic’d-up video from Super Bowl LIII. Tuesday night’s “Inside the NFL” episode was chock full of them, and they provide a fascinating insight into what was a tense, competitive game.
