Brady With Gronk Is The Best Brady

Rob Gronkowski’s return to pro football has been speculated about since just about the moment he abruptly retired in March 2019, and this week the wrestling champion actually did it. On Tuesday, Gronk unretired and was dealt from the New England Patriots to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (along with a seventh-round draft choice) for a fourth-round pick. The move reunites new Bucs QB Tom Brady with arguably his all-time favorite target. Brady and Gronk hooked up for 78 career touchdowns, which is the most Brady threw to any individual receiver, by no small margin. (Randy Moss is second with half as many TDs — he snagged 39 passes from Brady for scores. ) Not only that, but the Brady-Gronkowski pairing is the fifth-most prolific touchdown combination in NFL history, according to ESPN’s Stats & Information Group: Brady and Gronk made for a historic connection Most career touchdown receptions thrown from Tom Brady, and most TDs in NFL history by a pairing of quarterback and receiver Most TD passes from Tom Brady Most prolific TD pass combos Receiver TDs Combo TDs Rob Gronkowski 78 Manning/Harrison 112 Randy Moss 39 Rivers/Gates 89 Julian Edelman 36 Young/Rice 85 Wes Welker 34 Marino/Clayton 79 James White 24 Brady/Gronkowski 78 Deion Branch 24 Sources: Pro-Football-Reference.
