Were Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski almost Raiders?


can Tom Brady And ended up together with Rob Gronkowski Las Vegas Raiders? Dana White claims that this almost happened.

The UFC president made the claim in an alternate broadcast for Saturday night's UFC 278 prelims, a show called “UFC 278 with the Gronks,” featuring the NFL great, his father Gordon, his four brothers and White, among others.

As for the story of Brady and Gronk almost joining forces with the Raiders, it was Gronkowski who pushed White to tell the story.

“Do I really tell this story right now?” White asked.

After Gronkowski stepped forward, White shared the story.

“I worked to put that deal together,” White said. ” … It was almost a done deal. And at the last minute, (head coach Jon) Gruden blew up the deal and said he didn't want them. And all hell broke loose, man. It was crazy.

“And Brady was already looking at the houses, and still hadn't been told that Gronk was coming,” White added. “So the year the Bucs won the Super Bowl with Brady and Gronk in Las Vegas, Gruden blew the deal.”

Instead, Brady signed with Tampa Bay in March 2020, and the New England Patriots traded Gronkowski to the Bucs a month later. Together, they helped Tampa Bay win the next Super Bowl, beating the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9.

“I won't tell that story until Gronk tells it,” White said.

“And Dana,” Gronkowski replied, “that's exactly what happened, and you just told the story.”

Gronk added: “I'm glad it didn't go through. It all worked out for the best, man. I'm glad we went to Tampa, man. It worked out. I love that place.”
