Rob Gronkowski Talks Julian Edelman And The Bucs

April 13th, 2021

Joking or serious?

Oh, this will get things stirred up.

Bucs foot-rubbing, car-littering tight end Rob Gronkowski got caught by one of those TMZ ambush reporters at LAX, even though Gronk was wearing a hoodie and masked up.

Salute to the citizen reporter for recognizing Gronk!

Anyway, one question Gronk got hit with was if there is any chance recently retired former Belicheats receiver Julian Edelman would come out of retirement (like Gronk?) and play for the Bucs “next year.”

Safe bet, Gronk said, claiming there is a “69 percent chance” Edelman will play for Tampa Bay.

“He’ll be back,” Gronk said of Edelman. “He’ll be back. Yeah.”

In a rarity, TMZ did not provide embed codes. But you can see the video here. Gronk is asked about Edelman and the Bucs at the 1:21 mark.

Now what Joe doesn’t know is if Gronk was pulling the guy’s leg or not. Gronk was masked up and you couldn’t tell if he was joking or dead serious. Remember, we are talking about a serial prankster here.

So take it for whatever it is, which may be nothing at all.


Thursday night, April 29, at Big Storm Brewery in Clearwater. Great fun with Bucs fans.

Here’s your official video invite. Be there!

    Hard pass.

    “if” he comes back it would be late October or early November and used in a Playoff run, maybe here. ME and Godwin better get the end zone targets this year, they have paid their franchise dues unlike Gronk and AB last year… just a human nature thing that needs to be factored in

  3. Bird Says:

    He was being a smart ass

    I mean cmon. 69 dude

  4. Winny Testaverde Says:

    TMZ reporter more dogged than Ira during a Hall of Fame presentation. Edelman would be too much of a good thing in my book. I’m still bullish on Brown though.

    Edelman’s wrecked. Couldn’t pass a physical. He’s done.

  7. Kentucky Buc Says:

    If you know anything about Gronk you know that the 69 thing is his running joke. He was yanking the guy.

    Nothing to see here folks.. Not happening.

    Great team player, but his hands have turned to stone.
    Take up slot car racing.

    69% chance Joe is running out of off season topics to blab about 😂

  12. Devin DiPalma Says:

    Yeah Gronk throwing 69 in there is a sure sign this is BS. Love that he said so though lol

  13. BucEmUp Says:

    I would much rather the Bucs trade out of the first round, being a Thursday night I really dont want to wate unti lord knows when to see them pick at 32, and if they DID trade out,that would make Friday night much more appealing!!!!!

  14. DaBux Says:

    There is a 100% chance that Gronk loves messing with the national media.

    Oh, and screwing with BB.

  15. Ash Says:

    Yeah you could tell that was a joke but and yeah hard pass on him

  16. Rod Munch Says:

    Listening to Patriots fans, who love the guy, he was a shell of his former self last year. Sounds like he’s legit retired, and if not, I can’t imagine he’d be good enough to make the team. Not taking away from his career, he was really good, but it’s over.

  17. nate Says:

    they will let whoever doesnt live up to expectations this coming year walk and bring in eldelman for a discount next year while he takes a year off and realizes like we all do.. He misses Tom Brady

  18. Marsha Says:

    Nate is 100% correct😎. It’s TOM BRADY ‼️

  19. adam from ny Says:

    i’m pretty sure there’s no 69ing allowed in the locker room…

    i could be wrong tho…

    Saying “Belicheats” is wrong and a bigger insult to Brady our former star QB in NE and your present QB. Have some class.
