New England Patriots' Rob Gronkowski Talks His Relationship with Tom Brady & His Many Injuries

Rob Gronkowski shows off shirtless body in ESPN The Magazine’s Interview Issue.

The 25-year-old New England Patriots player opened up about what was going through his head during his injuries and how his relationship with Tom Brady started.

On missing 17 games the past two seasons because of injuries: “After the knee injury last year. I had just come back from back surgery, arm surgery, and I missed a few games. I came back halfway through the season last year. When I went down with the knee, I didn’t know what to expect. That night, I was thinking all these crazy thoughts in my head. ‘What’s going on? Why is this happening? I just got back.’”

On his biggest fear after the injury: “‘Am I ever going to be able to play football again? What’s going on with my career?’ I was just thinking things like that. You’ve got tears going down your eyes. You’ve got your trainers right there and my parents right there. I was just thinking, ‘Is this it?’ I didn’t know what a knee injury was. I’d never felt pain like that.”

On the most meaningful thing Tom Brady ever said to him: “He always used to yell at me and get on my case. I was like, ‘Man, this dude, why is he coming at me like that?’ He would always be making sure my routes were on point, yelling at me to be where I’ve gotta be. Then he came up to me one day and he was like, ‘Yo, Rob, you know I love you. I just see a lot of potential in you. I’m just trying to get on the same page. I want your max performance out there.’ And when he said that, it all clicked. I was like, ‘Oh, now I know why he’s being like that.” That actually made me more motivated. I’ve gotta get on the right step. If Tom Brady believes I can do it, then I believe. It was meaningful when he said, ‘I love you and I see so much potential in you.’”

Rob Gronkowski goes naked on the cover of ESPN‘s annual Body Issue!

Here is what the 23-year-old New England Patriots tight end had to share with the mag:

On growing up with fitness: “My father was in the fitness equipment business, so our basement was always a weight room.”

On being an awkward runner as a kid: “I wasn’t very coordinated as a kid. My running was sloppy because I got tall quickly. But once I got used to my body, I became more coordinated. My running is all cleaned up now.”
