TNBD Sports:  Rob Gronkowski told Tom Brady he needed one more catch for 0K jackpot

Ask, and in Rob Gronkowski’s case, you shall receive.

Before the Buccaneers tight end bagged $1 million in bonuses during Sunday’s game against the Panthers, he told longtime friend and teammate, quarterback Tom Brady, he needed one more catch to unlock the jackpot.

“Tom! Good pass, dog,” Gronkowski said to Brady, who replied, “Thanks, baby. I had to get you.”

Gronkowski needed 55 receptions and 750 receiving yards this season to receive $500,000 per incentive, according to Spotrac. He missed out on an additional $500,000, however, only scoring six touchdowns this season instead of the nine needed.

Following the game, in which the Buccaneers wrapped the regular season at 13-4, Gronkowski joked about taking his teammates to dinner, sans Brady. The 44-year-old quarterback responded to Gronkowski’s snub Monday on his SiriusXM podcast, “Let’s Go!”
