On Wednesday, Tom Brady posted a clip of his new Buccaneers teammate Rob Gronkowski “reporting” for duty, responding to the call of a conch shell in a scene right out of “Anchorman.”
“Time to run it back Gronky!” Brady captioned the Instagram video, which features Gronkowski running through a wooded area to the 42-year-old quarterback.
“A little tired, but Gronk reporting,” the 30-year-old tight end said.
The Patriots sent Gronkowski and a seventh-round pick to the Buccaneers on Tuesday in exchange for a fourth-rounder. Gronkowski, who initially retired in early 2019 with a year remaining on his contract, told Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer he felt a football spark once again.
“I always said when I have that feeling, and it feels right, I will be ready to take the field again,” Gronkowski said. “And I have that feeling. I’m ready.”
It remains to be seen if Brady will be letting Gronkowski crash at St. Jetersburg.
