Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski say they’re not finished yet – ‘We’re coming back’

Tom Brady won his fifth Super Bowl MVP title on Sunday night, and former Patriots teammate Rob Gronkowski was his leading pass catcher with six receptions for 67 yards and two touchdowns.

And they might be back for more.

"We're coming back. You already know that!" Brady said during the trophy presentation.

Gronk may be joining him.

"I'll remain unretired," he said. "I'm a free agent. It's the first time in my career I'm a free agent. I signed basically an eight-year contract and played it all out. I signed that when I was 22 years old, and it's just pretty incredible to play out a contract like that, with a retirement in-between. That's surreal.

"But I definitely see myself coming back. Just the guys around here, the players around here, the coaches, the people in the front office, they're all just great people and I love working with them all year long. I'm obviously going to soak this in and see where I'm at in a couple weeks, but I don't see why not. I don't see why I won't be back."

One note: the Patriots will host the defending Super Bowl champion Buccaneers during the 2021 season.
