Ask and you get in Rob Gronkovsky’s work.
Before the Buccaneers received a $ 1 million bonus in Sunday’s game against the Panthers, he told his longtime friend and teammate, midfielder Tom Brady, he needed another catch to open the jackpot.
“Let’s go, I need one more thing,” Gronkovsky said, standing aside and saying to Brady, “Another hunt?” before hitting two fists.
In Sunday’s season finale against Carolina, Gronkovsky needed seven hunts and another 85 receptions to secure two incentives of $ 500,000 each. In the fourth quarter, Gronkowski locked up the yardage bonus, according to “To Win,” but another reception was needed.
With just over six minutes left in the game, the bookmakers were 14 points ahead of the Panthers to stay in the game to make sure Brady Gronkowski could catch them.
“Tom! “Good pass, dog,” Gronkowski told Brady, to which he replied, “Thank you, boy. I should have taken you.”
According to Spotrac, Gronkowski needed 55 receptions and 750 receptions to receive $ 500,000 for each promotion this season. He missed an extra $ 500,000, but has scored just six goals this season instead of the required nine.
After the game, in which the Buccaneers finished the regular season 13-4, Gronkowski joked about taking his teammates to dinner, sans Brady. The 44-year-old defender said on Monday in the SiriusXM podcast that Gronkovsky’s “Let’s go!” he replied.
“I don’t know, man. All is well. I know what he is eating. Let’s just say it doesn’t follow the TB12 guidelines, so he can eat dinner without me, ”Brady said.
Before becoming a team in Tampa Bay in April 2020, Brady and Gronkowski won three Super Cup titles in New England. They are now chasing a series of championships with the Buccaneers and will get everything in the NFC Wild Card game against the Eagles on Sunday.
