The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are still celebrating Tom Brady’s homecoming and now Rob Gronkowski could return, too.

In a viral video, Gronkowski signalled there is a “good chance” he will return to the NFL for the upcoming 2022 NFL season.

He was also overheard discussing his future with someone who appeared to be his barber. He stated that he will pretend to be delaying his retirement decision in response to Tom Brady’s retirement announcement.

The Tampa Bay tight end was impacted by the quarterback’s retirement, and he wanted to put Brady on the edge of his seat and stress him out in retaliation.

“It’s a very good chance,” said Gronkowski. “I’ll let (Brady) have a little scare. Couple months without me and then, you know. He just did it to me for a couple of months.”

What makes it a hot rumor among fans is because of his comment this week. The 32-year-old admitted to TMZ that he dodged playing catch to avoid the temptation to return proactively in the future.

“I knew if I started catching some passes that my head would have started turning, like, ‘Oh, crap, I got to get back out on the field,'” Gronk added. “And, right now, I’m not ready to get back out on that field. I’m not ready to commit to the game of football right now.”

Gronk is an unrestricted free agent at the moment. He was signed to a one-year, $8 million contract last season. He’s had 100 catches for 1,425 yards and 13 touchdowns in two seasons in Tampa, following a one-year retirement from football.

Brady and Gronk have won four Super Bowl titles since they played together in New England. Recently, both of them won another championship in Super Bowl LV with the Buccaneers.
