Gronk gives us an inside look at how the conversation with Brady looked
Not long after Tom Brady made the and pack up from the New England Patriots Tampa Bay Buccaneers, his good friend and former tight end Rob Gronkowski . With Gronk with the only quarterback he has said he will play for, .
The surprising move from the two players left sports fans wishing they could be a fly on the wall to see how it all went down. Did Brady call Gronk? Did Gronk call Brady?
Gronk says after teasing him a bit about a return, Brady got really excited and then possibly overdramatized how it all went down. Take a look:
"All of a sudden he just screams on the phone, 'Rob I just want you to come back and play with me' and I was like 'Oh alright, alright I'll come back then Tom, no problem,' he was crying like 'Oh my god please come back' ... I was like 'wow just missed me that much' so I had to come back."
Gronkowski explained how their conversation first started starting by saying that Brady first went through his own process before the two talked seriously. With the theatrics and excitement that define Gronk, he told the rest of the story.
The 31-year-old TE made the call, "I called him I was like, 'Wooo Tampa Bay baby... how's the weather down there?' He's like 'Oh it's great, it's fantastic,' and then I was like 'Oh man, you know Tom I've been thinking about football a little bit'"
Gronk explained, "I'm just teasing with him and I could just tell he's getting all this excitement."
Clearly he was more than just teasing him, as the two ended up back in the same team uniform.
The three-time champion also brought up to Brady that his mother lived down there and added, "it would be great to have a new opportunity."
