Tom Brady wishes Rob Gronkowski was on the field with him; The former NFL star jokes about body passing

Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski are back to trading barbs like the good old days on Monday’s episode of “Let’s Go!” Podcast with sportscaster Jim Gray prior to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Dallas Cowboys game.

Brady told Gray he was looking forward to having Gronkowski on the show after the tight end spent the entire 2022 season retired. He said he’d rather have Gronkowski play the field with him at Raymond James Stadium against the Cowboys.

“As much as I love having him on the show, I’d much rather have him on the field with me,” Brady said. “So, I’m upset with him because he’s at the parade with me on Monday morning and not in the field with me on Monday night. But I’ll get over it.”

Brady said there have been several attempts since March to bring Gronkowski back to the Pirates. The tight end told Fox News Digital last week that his mentality wasn’t in it to play soccer again.

When Gronkowski joined the show, Brady wondered if there would be enough time to get Gronkowski to Tampa to take the bodysuit and suit.

“If I get down there and I’m ready to play tonight, I’m going to give up on the physical first,” said the former Buccaneers and New England Patriots star. “I’m just going to flex. I’m going to walk into the room, and I’m going to say, ‘Do you like those guns?'” And they’d be like, “Yeah, I do.” Passed the physical.” Just check the tag, I’m OK. And if I have to suit up, I’ve run a bit. Nothing crazy. I’ve never run any football ways. I haven’t watched football. How many plays do you think it is You can get out of me tonight if I just show up, put down the board and play tonight?”

Brady said he thinks he can get about 20 plays off Gronkowski if he actually plays.

“I think I can do that too. I think I can do that, about 15 to 20. I mean, the pace on the football, you have to tone it down a little bit because every time I come back first he passes me it always feels like 200 mph, I’m not used to on it yet.” “So, that first pass, oh, we’ll get that out of the way in the warm-ups. So, I’m going to do three warm-ups so I don’t get burned. And then about 15 to 20 plays. I think I can pull it off.”

Brady said he thinks Gronkowski can do it.

“You’re a natural,” he said, “like riding a bike for you.” “And I remember the times when we haven’t been throwing up for a while and then all of a sudden we’re together and it’s like, Boom, we’re hitting on all cylinders. So, it literally takes no time because you’re actually a great athlete and you’re a natural footballer, so it doesn’t take much for you to be ready. to launch.”

Gronkowski retired from the NFL after the 2021 season.

He told Fox News Digital that he ignored texts and calls from people urging him to play.

He said, “I know, man. I just ignore them.” “I’m laughing, you know. You sent some funny stuff back, but it’s also very humbling. It’s very nice to be in that well-thought-out situation where you’re still required. Normally, in the NFL, you get chewed up and you get kicked out.” Immediately… You spit and spit, and therefore, it’s great to be in this position.

“I would say just one of a few out there to call teams, and you can go back and play in the NFL. So, that’s definitely a humbling experience. But the mentality isn’t there. And I’m just having fun and very satisfied with where I am.”
