On ‘Watch What Happens Live’ with Andy Cohen, Rob Gronkowski skirted questions about possibly coming out of retirement to join Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In one of the more entertaining episodes in recent memory of Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski appeared with Saturday Night Live‘s Cheri Oteri Monday night.
Among the highlights of the episode, including Gronk responding to Tom Brady’s comments about his penis, Gronk trying to name the women from Sex and the City and Gronk confusing Judy Garland with Judge Judy, the three-time Super Bowl champion was asked whether there was any substance to the constant buzz about him coming out of retirement to join Brady on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Gronk gave a noncommittal answer, but right when he had a chance to close the door for good, he left it cracked open juuuust wide enough for further speculation.
“The day that I retired, within 24 hours there was already rumors that I was coming out of retirement,” he told Cohen. “I’m feeling good right now, I’m happy where I’m at and you just never know, man. You just never know. You never know. I’m not totally done, I like to stay in shape, but I’ve gotta get that feeling back.”
Brady shocked the NFL world when he left the Patriots for the Buccaneers in the offseason, and ever since then, people have been wondering whether a change of scenery and a Tampa Bay team loaded with offensive weapons might be enough to coax Gronkowski out of retirement and into another reunion.
Given that this remote interview also included talk about his and Brady’s junk, we’ll probably need to take his words with a grain of salt either way.
