Tom Brady not expecting a Patriots return from Rob Gronkowski

Tom Brady isn’t holding his breath on Rob Gronkowski’s return to Foxboro.

Addressing a recent report, in which Patriots owner Robert Kraft is said to have welcomed a Gronkowski return ahead of the playoffs, Brady said it’s unlikely the tight end suits up this year.

“I have heard that, and I am sure a lot of our fans would love to see that too just because everyone remembers how great he was as a player, but I know Gronk is really enjoying his time right now,” Brady said on Westwood One, according to WEEI.

It was suggested that a phone call from Brady could be the difference in getting his friend and teammate on board for a late-season return and playoff push. It no longer sounds like that is the case.

Gronkowski, 30, has embarked on a number of off-field endeavors this year, including a partnership with CBD Medic and a Fox NFL analyst role. The five-time Pro Bowler has also continuously shut down comeback rumors, something Brady has taken notice of.

“He’s said countless times this year that he’s not coming back, so you just have to take his word for it,” Brady said.

Gronkowski is currently on the IR/retired list and will no longer be eligible to play this season should he remain there past the Nov. 30 deadline, per league rules.
