NFL world reacts to Rob Gronkowski telling Patriots he wants to play with Tom Brady

Rob Gronkowski reportedly wants the New England Patriots to trade him so that he can reunite with Tom Brady and play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media shared this stunning news, which was somewhat foreshadowed by Gronk himself earlier on Tuesday.

Crazy enough, this is something we predicted could happen way back in February, looking at teams that could lure both Gronk and Brady in 2020.

Still, the news of a potential reunion, with Gronkowski coming out of retirement to do it, set the NFL world on fire.
