Rob Gronkowski comes in support of his old teammate Tom Brady

Tom Brady's long-time teammate and one of his best friends, Rob Gronkowski, isn't one bit surprised at the quarterbacks's response on his playing future. Brady appeared on the Let's Go podcast with Jim Gray and Larry Fitzgerald when the situation regarding his playing future came up.

Who are the current Super Bowl favorites?

Brady was pointed in his response, saying:

"If I knew what I was going to f***ing do, I would've f***ing done it."

There you go, now Gronkowski has given his thoughts on that little exchange. Speaking on the Up & Adams Show with Kay Adams, Gronk wasn't the least bit surprised at Brady's reaction.

"I'm not surprised at all. I can't believe it took that long for him to blow up about it. I mean, like, you can only get pushed so far and ask that question so many times, especially when you truly don't know what you're going to do. I'm not, as you know, not as popular as Tom and I'm wanting to know what he's going to do."

He added:

"So it kind of, you know, kind of gets annoying when you get asked every single second, especially when you haven't even gone through the process yet of what's going on and free agency. The season's not even over. So I can't believe it took them that long to blow up about it. I mean, he was just setting the standard of everyone. Shut the EFF up. Let me go through the process. And I respect it. You know, you gotta love it. And I love that he did it on his own guy."

What will Tom Brady do in 2023?

Speculation is rife about what the 45-year-old will do next year. Will he return with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, be on another team, or finally retire after 23 years in the NFL.

Given how this year played out, the possibility of retirement is high on the list for Tom Brady. A return to Tampa looks like his best bet should he continue in the NFL for a 24th season.


Although the Las Vegas Raiders and Miami Dolphins are rumored suitors for the legendary quarterback, we are waiting on tenterhooks to find out his next move.

Just don't keep asking him about it as Jim Gray found out the hard way.
