Rob Gronkowski doesn’t know what to think about the Tom Brady comeback rumors.
The future hall of fame QB announced his retirement in February, which marked the second straight year he announced his retirement. Last season, he was retired for 40 days before he returned and ended up playing the 2022 season for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Despite Brady doing everything to signal he is done, the rumors will not stop. There are rumors that the San Francisco 49ers could be a possibility for him. Then there were rumors that he could be lured by the Miami Dolphins.
Gronk, who teamed with Brady on the Patriots and later the Bucs, said the comeback rumors surprised him.
“Surprising,” Gronkowski told Boston.com.

“That was a surprise when I saw that news,” Gronk said. “It actually put me on my toes. I was very shocked when I saw that. I feel like Tom is definitely totally done playing. I haven’t talked to him or anything about it. I’m not speaking for Tom. Just from everything I saw from his retirement video and everything I just feel like he is just done playing football. It was just very shocking though when I heard that news the other day.”
Both Brady and Gronk have retired and unretired, so it’s not shocking that rumors would continue to suggest that either one of them would come back. Even if the season started without Brady, the rumors would continue to come out until he actually joins the broadcasting booth in 2024.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
