When Tom Brady joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020 it changed the franchise. Then, he brought Gronk to Tampa and the Bucs won Super Bowl 55. What if they never joined the Bucs? There is a story out there about an NFL team that didn’t want Brady and Gronk.
The team is the Las Vegas Raiders and the source of this is UFC boss, Dana White. It was all confirmed by Rob Gronkowski himself. White was on “UFC 278 with The Gronks” on Saturday when he talked about it.
Dana White talked about how he was helping the Raiders bring Brady and Gronk to Vegas. White said, “I worked to put that deal together for Brady and Gronk to come to the Raiders. And it was almost a done deal, and at the last minute, Gruden blew the deal up and said that he didn’t want them, and all hell broke loose, man.
“It was crazy. Brady was already looking at houses, and it wasn’t being said yet that Gronk was coming, so Las Vegas would’ve had Brady and Gronk the year that the Bucs won the Super Bowl, except Gruden blew the deal up.”
The former Raiders and Bucs coach, Jon Gruden, is the one who nixed the deal according to White.
Gronk Confirmed The Team That Didn’t Want Brady And Gronk
Gronk’s response to White’s story, “And Dana, that is exactly what happened, and you just told the story.”
He added, “It worked out for the best, and I’m glad it did not go through. It all worked out for the best, man. I’m glad we went to Tampa, man. I loved that place.”
So, there is a team that didn’t want Brady and Gronk and Bucs fans aren’t we glad that they didn’t?
