Tampa Bay Buccaneers star tight end Rob Gronkowski recently took to Twitter to congratulate his former New England Patriots teammate Deion Branch for getting a job as the new Director of Player Development of the Louisville Cardinals. The team had announced the news on Twitter, upon which the former football player tweeted:

“I’m Backkkkkkkkkkkk. Truly an honor and blessing to be a part of greatness. I can’t wait to get the ball rolling with these amazing young men on the roster and great coaches on our staff!!!!!! #CARDS4LIFE.”

The former Patriots wide receiver attended the University of Arizona 2000-2002. In his first season as a fresher, the receiver was named the first-team All-Conference USA selection and was voted to be Cardinals’ Most Valuable Player and Outstanding Offensive Performer.

He was then drafted by the Patriots in 2002. And during his NFL career, the receiver went on to play for the Seahawks, the back again with the Patriots, and retired as a Colt in 2013. The veteran had played with the tight end Rob Gronkowski from 2010 to 2012. However, this is not the only team that the two share.
