After being transferred from New England Patriots to the Tampa Bay, one of his first challenges was to get to know his teammates better. To achieve this, he lured his former teammate Rob Gronkowski out of retirement to play for Tampa Bay Buccaneers alongside him. As the 33-year-old tight end had played with Brady for nine long seasons in the New England Patriots.

Although their partnership proved vital for the team as now there was someone who truly understood the genius of the veteran quarterback. Furthermore, at the end of the season, Gronks had a Super Bowl ring adorning his fingers.

As the team goes back again, they certainly know the quarterback like the back of their hand, and the chemistry among them is unimaginable. Under his guidance, the team has flourished like no other.

Gronks on Brady’s professionalism

Rob Gronkowski told the reporters on Friday, “It’s incredible. Ever since I started playing with him, I’ve never seen a drop-off. I’ve seen some balls drop off, but after that, it always bounces right back.”

“Just overall, it’s just incredible the way he just takes care of himself and the way he keeps himself at such a high level that there are literally no drop-offs since I’ve been playing with him since I think he was my age when I started — 32 or 33 — which is pretty wild to see no difference at all or anything. His game has just improved more,” he added.

Furthermore, it is crazy to think of a player being in his prime at the age of 44 and showing no signs of slowing down. This is a result of the kind of work ethic this that Tom Brady possesses. However, Gronkowski still has a chance to win a fifth ring of his career with the likes of a quarterback like no other.
