Tom Brady summons Rob Gronkowski to Buccaneers with magic conch
At long last, Tom Brady is suiting up for a team not named the New England Patriots.
Joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this offseason, Brady may have turned the page, but not without taking one of his main characters along with.

Looking like a true Tampa Bay seafarer — or Spongebob Squarepants with his magic conch shell — Brady opened up the lungs and used the power of the conch to bring Gronk out of retirement and into a Buccaneers uniform.
“A little tired, but Gronk reporting,” Gronkowski said as he sprinted from out of the bush to greet his new-old QB.
And like any of Tampa Tom’s videos, social media had a field day:
