Did Rob Gronkowski shade the Patriots in wishing Danny Amendola well?

Like quarterback Tom Brady, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski took to social media to wish former teammate Danny Amendola well after he signed with the division-rival Miami Dolphins.

Unlike Brady, Gronkowski might have included a hidden message to the Patriots in said post.



A lot has been made of Gronkowski’s unwillingness to commit to playing next season. Some of that has to due with a perceived issue he has with the culture surrounding his Patriots. In fact, Gronkowski has been contemplating retirement for a while now.

We could, however, be reading too much into this. Gronkowski is one weird dude. That is known. Maybe it’s simply an inside message to Amendola. Either way, those four words are likely to be a subject of conversation around the New England area this week.
