Football News

As you might expect, the news that Tom Brady has had his four-game 'deflategate' suspension completely overturned by the courts today is causing quite a stir on social media.

At the time of writing the issue is taking up five of Twitter's top 10 trending stories in the US, with Brady supporters and detractors out in full force and memes aplenty.


One man who is firmly behind the veteran quarterback however, is his New England Patriots teammate Rob Gronkowski. And the Pro Bowl tight end has been quick to get involved in the social media frenzy - posting his own take of events in a message that has already generated 15 thousand retweets.

It is clear that Gronkowski is thrilled at the prospect of having Tom Brady throwing to him from the outset ahead of the 2015 NFL campaign, and considering the success they've had together you can understand why.

Tight Bond

The monster tight end has 308 receptions and 52 touchdowns in the NFL, and the vast majority of those have come after getting his hands on a pass from the reigning Super Bowl MVP.

Indeed, only Phillip Rivers and Antonio Gates are ahead of the Gronk-Brady tandem in terms of quarterback-tight end touchdowns in NFL history (the Chargers pair has 65 to the Patriots duo's 45).

Just this past weekend, speaking after the Patriots' 43-17 win over the Bengals, Gronkowski spoked about being there for his friend and teammate:

"I told my brother before I came to the game, 'I'm gonna make 12 look like Tom Brady again, baby,'" said the eccentric TE via

"And I went out there with my teammates and we made Tom Brady look like Tom Brady after you guys were criticizing him all week.

"The fans, everything. And it feels so good and he's such a leader and he went over 50,000 yards today. He's an unbelievable player and I'm so glad to play with him."

After today's news, Gronkowski has just gotten an extra four opportunities to play with Brady and, such is the potential of such a prospect, it is perhaps unsurprising to see Rob Gronkowski react with such joy on Twitter this afternoon.

With Tom Brady now free to feature in all 16 games don't bet against he and Gronkowski making a serious dent in that NFL touchdown record.
