Cam Brate Apologizes For Lack Of Timely “Intel” On Gronk

May 18th, 2022

Bucs TE Cam Brate.

So will he or won’t he? The drama continues with no immediate end in sight.

The mystery iswhat Bucs foot-rubbing tight end Rob Gronkowski will do this fall, play for the Bucs or do any number of other things?

A player tight with Gronk confessed yesterday he doesn’t have any fresh news, though he is doing his best to get Gronk back to the Bucs for one more rodeo. And that player is fellow tight end Cam Brate.

“Obviously, we all love Gronk,” Brate said, referring to Gronk as “Grandpa.” “Gronk’s a great player and the Bucs are better with Gronk.”

Then, like many things involving Gronk, things began to go sideways.

Brate was speaking after underwear football practice and began to offer up stories of Gronk at Brate’s wedding this past spring. Then Brate realized where he was and who was monitoring his every word/ Suddenly, Brate had to be very careful navigating the waters.

“Oh, elite! Elite wedding guest,” Brate said of Gronk at his wedding. Then Brate looked right Bucs media relations executives to his direct right and then said, “Yep, as a couple of people in the room can attest.”

It’s almost like Brate had a great off-color story or two to tell of Gronk’s antics but didn’t want to get in trouble. “They were all there, Bucs PR were great guests as well” and Brate again glanced again at the Bucs’ media relations staffers, as if hoping they left the room so he could share a naughty story.

Careful Cam.

So what did/could Brate say about Gronk at the wedding?

“Gronk didn’t stop dancing for like four hours,” Brate said. “That may have been his only workout of the offseason but he got it in that night.”

Gronk tearing up the dance floor at Brate’s wedding is an example of why Gronk may come back. He has said in past interviews with these syndicated Hollywood TV gossip shows that what tugs his heartstrings (outside of Tom Brady’s pressure) is being tight with several Bucs on and off the field. Gronk is in the same clique as Brate.

It is not uncommon to see social media photos and video of Gronk and his girlfriend, the model and Hollywood personality Camille Kostek, hanging out at Brate’s house or at one of another half-dozen or so other Bucs couples’ pads. The group includes about 8-12 Bucs players and their WAGs. On gamedays, Kostek is hanging with these same WAGs.

Gronk has said he and Kostek have tight bonds with fellow Bucs players/significant others, and they really like living in Tampa.

So no, there’s no new news about Gronk, unless you need someone to liven up a wedding reception.

    That stache is a little too 70’s porn, Cam.

  2. FortMyersDave Says:

    Sasquatch: I was thinking either a “Boogie Nights” extra or Bob Mould when he was rocking with Husker Du back in the ’80s.

  3. David Says:

    It is perfect!

  4. Goatfarmer Says:

    This post is gold! Love that Brate and Gronk are so tight and fun loving.

    Like has been opined 1000 times, Gronk will show up in August and we will welcome him with open arms. Honestly, that’s also when we may see Suh.

  5. Cleanhouse Says:

    Good stuff!

  6. Goatfarmer Says:

    The porn stache is epic. Maybe he can get the whole TE group to wear them imagine Ko Koetter rocking a porn stache!

  7. Goatfarmer Says:

    *Ko Kieft – autocorrect gone wild

  8. steele Says:

    Tight personal relationships alone mean nothing. If they did, Julian Edelman would have unretired and signed up. Does Gronk really want to fight through what will be the toughest season ever faced? How much does he really want, and for how long?

    A complete unknown at this point.

  9. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Gronk-a-day……..good stuff!!!

  10. adam from ny Says:

    i’m also a san francisco giants fan…long time fan…just like with the bucs…

    they do a “mustache may” and it’s really caught on with the players…

    it started in their AAA system and got bumper up to their MLB organization…and really caught on

    the bucs players can do a “september stache”…

    it would be kinda cool, says adam from ny

  11. Hodad Says:

  12. BucsBeBack (Artist formally known as: BringBucsBack) Says:

    Why the Ron Burgundy photo on a Cam Brate article, Joe?

  13. Razor Ramone Says:

    He should apologize for that mustache. Nice Husker Du reference.

  14. Biff Barker Says:

    You guys are’nt giving proper credit to Barrett Ruud. The absolute 1970’s porn mustache king!. I’m surprised you missed this one Joe. Too much Bromosa?

  15. Goatfarmer Says:

    No such thing as too much Bromosa.

  16. SB~LV Says:

    Rock !
    That mustache Cam !

  17. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Ha ha Hodad…. you beat me to it!
