Rob Gronkowski Pays Tribute to Tom Brady Following Retirement Announcement

What does Gronk have to say about Tom hanging up the cleats?

After Tom Brady officially announced his NFL retirement Tuesday, it was only a matter of time before “Gronky” chimed in with a tribute to his longtime friend and QB.

Gronkowski shared a one-minute, 42-second video on Instagram that featured he and Brady’s best moments set to Queen’s “You’re My Best Friend.” Unlike Brady’s Instagram post Tuesday, Gronk’s tribute featured plenty of references to their Patriots days.

“Tommy Boy!!! This football journey with you has been nothing short of special,” Gronk wrote in the caption.

“Thank you for your dedication to the game, putting the team in the best possible position to win every year, all the records that were broken, the Super Bowls, the memories, and your friendship through the last 12 years.

“If you commit even just 10% of what you committed to football in whatever you do next, you will be super duper successful. I witnessed greatness for so many years and got to learn from the best to ever do it. You’re a legend and always will be.”

Gronk made no mention of whether or not he’ll return for another season, or join Brady in retirement.

But considering Gronk hasn’t played for any other starting QB in his NFL career, it’s hard to see him playing without “Tommy” throwing him passes.

The best QB and Tight End duo to ever do it.
