Brady leading the league in passing TDs and Gronk is leading for TD receptions. Yeah, pretty dumb by Bill. Not on Babe Ruth level but up there for sure.
Not dumb at all. Both parties needed a change. And you keep falling into the trap thinking that Tom would be doing in NE what he is doing in Tampa. He walked into a loaded team in Tampa. He would not have had that in NE last season and would have continued to struggle with the team as happened in 2019.
Gronk was genuine in wanting to hang up the cleats. Right after the SB win against the Rams, Peter King interviewed him and Gronk could barely walk he had taken such a blow to the thigh, he showed King the damage and it kind of shocked King, the size of the bruise he was carrying. He was done, he had enough and wanted to retire and have some fun. That was nothing to do with Bill. Tom then moves, offers him some fun in the sun and of course a big contract and there you go.
