Rob Gronkowski joins Tom Brady in his new NFT venture

Gronkowski announced on Monday that he was the latest athlete to have joined the GOAT’s venture. Gronkowski has had a very successful partnership with Brady, as they have won four Super Bowl championships together in their term with the New England Patriots and now the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

“It’s no secret Tom and I are a winning team, and joining him and Autograph was an easy decision because now we’re able to take that same on-field chemistry to the digital world,” Gronks said.

“When Tom came to me to join Autograph, I already had a good understanding of the NFTs space and how big they are plus I’m an entrepreneur, so I was intrigued from a business perspective,” Gronkowski further explained. “Not to mention, it’s always fun to work with your friends and I’m also joining the likes of Tiger [Woods], Naomi [Osaka] and others.”

The Autograph seems complete now

Autograph has already joined hands with the GOATs of other sports too like Woods, Osaka, Simone Biles, Usain Bolt, Wayne Gretzky, Tony Hawk and Derek Jeter, releasing their NFTs on the platform. And now, with the addition of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end, Tom Brady has gathered the missing piece for his puzzle.

Now the duo will share the same place of work besides the Tampa Bay facility. However, their dynamic duo won’t share the gridiron during their next few regular-season matchups because of Gronks’ rib injury. However, he exclaims to be “improving every day” and his return will be pretty soon.
