The veteran Rob Gronkowski has decided to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers because he wanted to be closer to her mother who lives in Florida.
It is what the athlete revealed to host Ellen DeGeneres, the NBC network on Friday. The mother of the triple champion of the Super Bowl lies in Fort Myers.
“Of course, it didn’t hurt that Tom [Brady] is in Tampa, and the opportunity was there. By contrast, Tom was the aperitif, and then, there are a few other reasons. I love the weather. But the main reason I came to Tampa is that my mother lives two hours away.”
“She can come to all our home games and when I have days off, it is two hours away and I can see it.”
The Patriots of New England have exchanged the rights on Gronkowski with the Buccaneers on march 21. “Gronk” had announced his retirement in 2018 before joining the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).
