Former New England Patriots pass rusher Willie McGinest apparently knows a secret. Would he like to share it with the rest of the class?
McGinest posted a video to his Instragram account Saturday night showing some former Patriots playing catch. Ex-Patriots QB Drew Bledsoe was throwing the football to retired tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett.
“Major comebacks happening in foxboro stay tuned news will drop tomorrow night !!!!! ?” McGinest’s caption read.
The Patriots are unveiling their sixth Super Bowl title banner Sunday night before their season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. So, McGinest, Bledsoe, Gronkowski and Bennett are probably in town for that.
But maybe Saturday’s signing of Antonio Brown convinced Bennett and/or Gronkowski to come out of retirement to join the Dream Team? It’s a little farfetched, but hear us out.
The Patriots are absolutely loaded at running back, wide receiver and quarterback, but they’re weak at tight end with Ryan Izzo, Matt LaCosse and suspended veterans Ben Watson and Lance Kendricks.
McGinest very well could be trolling the Patriots fanbase. But crazier things have happened. Brown did join the team Saturday, after all.
It’s worth noting McGinest has been calling a Gronkowski comeback since even before the tight end retired over the spring.
