Rob Gronkowski’s Brother Claims He Will Stay With Tom Brady Wherever He Plays

September 12th, 2021

Joined at the hip.

So there has been chatter recently about how long park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting, handshake-stiffing, jet-ski-losing, biscuit-baking, tequila-shooting, smartphone-phobic, waffle-grilling, trophy-throwing, roller-coaster-scared, numbers-rules-peeved, helmet-tossing, football-punting, Bucs-Super-Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady will play.

Brady, 44, said he’d like to play with the Bucs longer than his current contract which expires at the end of the 2022 season. And if that is true, the brother of foot-rubbing tight end Rob Gronkowski claims Gronk will stick with the Bucs as long as Brady does.

Last week, Chris Gronkowski did an interview with TMZ and he said he cannot imagine his brother playing for any quarterback other than Brady.

“Whatever Tom has left,” Chris says, “I think that’s what Rob has left as well.”

As for why … Chris says it’s simple — he just can’t fathom Rob sticking around and catching passes from a different style of signal-caller.

“I just can’t see him playing with another quarterback,” Chris tells us. “It’s tough to get that chemistry. It’s tough to win once you lose that QB.”

Chris Gronkowski, a former NFL fullback, later added, “I think Rob will play it out until Tom plays it out is what I’m thinking.”

Well, after Thursday’s season-opening win over the Cowboys, in which Gronk had two touchdowns and two key catches on the game-winning drive, Gronk joked that Brady might play until he is 80.

Mock Joe if you wish, but it is hard to envision Gronk playing after he is eligible to collect Social Security.

    It would be easier separating Siamese twins with a dull butter knife than splitting up these two. Every game we’re witnessing some kind of NFL history. One hundred TD’s between the two, how many post season TD’s? Both first ballot HOFer’s, and I have no doubt they will retire together, and receive their gold jackets together. What a party.

  2. Medicated Pete Says:

    Tommy & Gronky are hell bent on passing the TD record that Manning & Harrison hold. Which means less tuddies for our WR’s and Mike Evans

  3. SteveK Says:

    Gronk understands the opportunity to play with Tom and that the winning a d championships, hall of fame careers, are all worth the grind and till the sport takes on your body. Plug-in any other QB and it is instantly not as “worth it”.

  4. BucsCoolade Says:

    Ya.. except he opted out in 2020.. wussy move that botched bradys season along with loss of david andrews.. Gronk was needed badly but could have needed time off. Bucs Op turned out to be his second calling. Lol..

  5. PSL Bob Says:

    Gronk is likely to hang it up before TB. Gronk doesn’t take care of himself the way Brady does. If Gronk gets any kind of injury that keeps him out for a lengthy period of time, and he’s prone to those now because of his age, he’ll hang it up regardless if Brady is still playing. Regardless, I’d like to see both retire as Bucs!

  6. Biff Barker Says:

    Coolade… you cant be serious. Swing and a miss.

    Gronk was busted up and sick of the Hoodies totalitarian ways. You call Gronk a wuss?

  7. Asdf Says:

    @PSL Bob – haha it’s not “taking care of yourself” it’s called actually get hit over the middle your entire career. Not even remotely comparable the punishment a QB like Brady takes on a given Sunday to Gronk. Come on man. Read about the hit to his quad the super bowl before retired

  8. GoFor2 Says:

    Joe needs to proofread his articles.

    “Brady, 44, said he’d like to play with the Bucs longer than his contract that after the 2022 season.”

    I realize the word ends was missed. But c’mon man. Good journalism starts with correct grammar.

    We’re used to it though here at

    Well if you look at how Gronk was the old Gronk in game one it’s easy to believe. He and Brady have an incredible chemistry together and it’s not just football, they’re truly friends. Actually the way Brady be holding his head and staring into his eyes at times would be highly suspect if they weren’t world class athletes with super beautiful women in their lives!

  10. DavidBigBucFan99 Says:

    How is missing a word in a sentence incorrect grammar??? It’s just a missed word it doesn’t change the construct of the sentence howwwwevah if he wrote ” Brady be wanting to play after 2022″ then I’d understand. If you’re going to whip out your trusty little “Grammar Police” Special Detectives badge and try to write someone a ticket keep your hands in your pockets and think about it first before reacting. Save yourself some embarrassment. Now on the other hand I do agree with the proof reading because these Joe’s do be making some errors. Then again does it really matter??? It’s not like it’s the Wall Street Journal or he’s addressing Congress, just a bunch of cavemen football fans who’ve never made mistakes on our posts.

    That’s crazy talk because TB12 ain’t going nowhere.

    I just can’t wait for some of the other receivers to get on the same wave length as Tom & Gronk.

    Hello, OJ!

  12. Flyin Dutchman Says:

    as a foreigner Bucs fan who has constant grammar glitches I can’t blame Joe but I do appreciate little bit of tough love to get it right. Joe could hire a proofreader I’m told there’s plenty of humanities BA’s with debt up to their necks.

  13. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    I see them playing through the 2022 season and then departing no matter what happens win-wise.

    After TB and Gronk are gone I wonder whether “old man” Bruce Arians will stick around. Will he will find it intriguing enough to see if he can work some of his “quarterback whisperer” magic on Kyle Trask? By then he will have had all of the time he needs to make his assessment of Trask’s potential. (It only took him one year to be ready to jettison Jameis Winston after all.)

    GoFor2, you are wasting your breath as it were.

    Today’s Internet “journalist” are dependent on their spell checkers and grammar checkers rather than their own memories and eyesight.

    I know whereof I speak I am a retired IT professional so I have a deep understanding of computer programming and its implications.

    Coincidentally my father just happened to be a professional newspaper journalist who worked his way up from being a reporter to a working editor at a copy desk back during the “new stone age”. 😀

  15. Bucs Win Says:

    Gronk is going to have one of his best seasons ever. IMO all the team passing records are probably going down this year with the added game.

  16. BucsCoolade Says:

    Ya barker.. he wussed out rather than help Brady that year. He got hurt then had the whole off season.. plus he was used conservatively . He could have played and helped the team also.

    That said. I’m glad he came back and showed what he still has.. um… like he woulda had 2019.
