What a crazy day it has been. There has been all sorts of speculation of this “bombshell” that was getting released later today and I’m now assuming this is the news.
According to Adam Kurkjian, Belichick and Kraft had a closed door meeting about trading Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski, and Brady had a little something to say about it:
From multiple sources, here's what I have re: the Gronk rumors. Told Belichick wanted to trade him. Offers on the table w both the Titans and 49ers. He and Robert Kraft had a closed-door meeting to discuss. Tom Brady threatened to retire if the deal went through. Kraft nixed it.

This is absolutely crazy, all I know is it wouldn’t be an NFL offseason without some sort of circus. I love Brady stocking up for his guy if this is true. You’re not trading my main man because want to blow this whole thing up. What would he get for Gronk anyways, a couple draft picks. Would be totally wrong to dump Gronk right now. No Gronk, no Jules for 4 games, no Amendola, I’d retire too.
