“Let’s go!” has become a catchphrase for quarterback Tom Brady.
Adding to speculation that he could be rejoining his former team or another NFL team, Gronkowski shared a 3-year-old video from Tom Brady titled “RECEIVERS… ASSEMBLE!!!” Sunday afternoon on Facebook. He added the caption, “Tom Brady, do you think this thing still works?!!”
Gronkowski has until Nov. 30 to declare for the rest of the NFL season, otherwise he can not play this season.
Past announcements from the All-Pro tight end included becoming a spokesperson for a CBD company and joining Fox Sports as an analyst.
On the Fox NFL pregame show, Gronkowski joked that maybe he was coming back to join the Dallas Cowboys.

Gronkowski retired from the NFL in March and went on to publicly say he wasn’t having fun anymore.
