Tom Brady tackles Rob Gronkowski after jersey “theft”

In a week which has already seen Rob Gronkowski show up in a wrestling ring, Tom Brady ended up the person pinning him.

Via DJ Bean of CSNNE.com, Gronkowski crashed the party when the quarterback and Patriots owner Robert Kraft showed up at yesterday’s Red Sox opener.

Brady was there to throw out the first pitch, and also retrieved his stolen Super Bowl jersey.

But during the festivities, Gronkowski playfully snatched it away and ran into the outfield. Brady gave chase, and tackled his tight end in the grass.

At least it didn’t require calling in the FBI, and Gronkowski was seemingly OK after his second staged contact of the offseason following his latest back surgery.

  1. what an adorable picture, glad to see that they are both confident enough in their manhood to frolick on the ground together in each others arms.

    why did you destroy your cell phone Tom?

  2. Full Contact team activities are a no no this time of year. Take away another draft pick.

  3. love it. The team that’s “no fun” for players who can’t handle the work and hard coaching has the most fun and best chemistry after they earn it

  4. I don’t care how many Super Bowl’s these guys win or how many teams they beat. The Pats are embarrassing and I wouldn’t trade anything my favorite team has accomplished with these guys. They’re all yours, Pats fans bahaha.

  5. There’s a great video of the two of them clowning around. But I can understand why this sort of team camaraderie is confusing to people used to watching their teams tear themselves apart or break their QB’s jaw.

    2 perennial winners having fun celebrating another huge win…

    What could “possible” go wrong?

    Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

  8. Classic! Lighten up, everyone. Pats are making it a regular habit of showing up on Opening Day at Fenway with their trophies.

    As mentioned above… “Let the hate flow through you. Feeeeeeeeeel the anger.”

    Love it.

  9. Two grown men acting like kids…AWESOME!!!
    To have it so good as them….WHAT A GREAT LIFE THEY LIVE!!!

    I think this article is actually a kindness to that group. There hasn’t been much lately for them to get their shots in on so they have been needing the outlet.

  12. I loved the five Lombardi’s on the grass…standing proud; like glistening tombstones, marking the solemn burials of our opponents.

    50k people? In John Henry’s dreams maybe. Clearly you’ve never been to Fenway. Not only would the park never hold them all, the plumbing…

    why did you destroy your cell phone Tom?
    ————————————————————
    The telephone was already made irrelevant.

    But that didn’t stop the NFL from permanently duping gullible people with the sensational use of the word “destroy” in the form of an orchestrated media saturation campaign.

    The NFL already had the 2 telephones that were owned by the Patriots and were used by the 2 equipment guys. It appears that duped people believe that one phone is not enough to see all the messages that were exchanged between two phones.

    As an added bonus, the NFL also had the log information that Tom Brady provided. Which means that the NFL already had 2 sources to see all information related to conversations with the equipment guys.

    Plus the NFL is not law enforcement and doesn’t have the right to see a personal telephone. Fools must have also assumed that the NFL could search his house with a film crew tagging along if they wanted to.

    A phone that is never going to be examined regardless of its condition is irrelevant. He’s rich enough to afford a new one. That’s a reason to wipe the replaced phone.

    Any idea when the NFL plans on releasing the PSI information from the 2015 season? You know, the information that Goodell is keeping secret because it would expose deflategate as the farce that it was.

    At this point only nitwits still believe that Brady cheated at anything other than life’s lottery.

    Plus it’s funny that no NFL players ever question Gronks toughness. That’s reserved to keyboard warriors typing from their moms basement.

    Seasick on a fishing boat?

    No, I think seeing two grown men frolicking on the grass is the cause.

    Apparently some prissy fishy fans are squeamish.

  21. Definition of pathetic:

    Not being a Patriots fan and then feeling the need to not only read..but then to actually take the time to make a negative comment under an off season article about Brady tackling Gronk.
