What a year 2020 has been.
And it’s only April.
New England Patriots fans had to cope with their quarterback of 20 years, Tom Brady, signing a two-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in March. The Patriots also lost a slew of players this offseason, including Kyle Van Noy (Miami Dolphins), Jamie Collins (Detroit Lions) and Elandon Roberts (Dolphins).
So, when Rob Gronkowski said Tuesday that he’s not “totally done” with football, it probably gave New England a little bit of hope that he’d return and add a solid weapon for the Patriots’ offense.
Not so fast.
Gronk reportedly is coming back to the NFL, but he wanted to play with Brady. So the Pats and Bucs reportedly agreed to a trade that sent the tight end to Tampa Bay along with a seventh-round pick in exchange for a fourth-round pick.
As you can imagine, the new sent Twitter ablaze.
good luck convincing me that tom didn?t tell gronk to sit a year to rehab when he made his decision about his last year with the patriots, so when he goes somewhere else robby g would be ready too. good luck.
