WWE 24/7 Champion Rob Gronkowski is Coming Back to the NFL, Joining Brady in Tampa Bay

Win if you can, lose if you must but always cheat. This was the motto of WWE legend Bobby “The Brain” Heenan that the New England Patriots have really taken to heart during their reign as the top team in the NFL. That reign pretty much ended with the retirement of tight end Rob Gronkowski and Tom Brady leaving for Tampa Bay. Next season will show if grumpy old Bill Belichick can win through the power of cheating alone without the natural talent of one of the NFL’s all-time top quarterbacks.

We thought we would see how Brady would do without the strong check-down receivers and tight ends he’s relied on in New England, especially in the later part of his career.

But it turns out that Rob Gronkowski is coming out of retirement and being traded to Tampa Bay to help his buddy Tom go out on top. Here’s what Gronk’s agent said about his return, via CNN.

“He loves new England. He loves the Patriots organization, Coach (Bill) Belichick, the Krafts, his teammates that are still there. He had an amazing run in New England. It was just time for him to continue his career with Tom Brady in Florida with Tampa,” said Rosenhaus. “It was something cool and exciting and challenging for him. He’s well rested and looking forward to playing with Tom again.”

I honestly think Brady may have begged him to come back. Yes, Brady is one of the best of all time, but he’s in his 40s, he’s in an unfamiliar situation and he doesn’t want to go out on a team that finishes under .500 when he finally does retire.
