During the episode, Brady also teased his former teammate about his retirement, which Gronkowski made official in June. “As much as I love having him on the show, I’d much rather have him on the field with me,” Brady said. “So I’m a little pissed off at him that he’s on the show with me on a Monday morning and not on the field with me Monday night. But I’ll get over it.” Brady’s team may have seen a different result if they had Gronkowski on the field with them on Monday after the Buccaneers lost to the Dallas Cowboys 31-14, knocking them out of the playoffs and ending their season. Following the big upset, Brady said, overall, he was taking it “one day at a time, truly,” he told reporters, as questions swirl over whether he’ll keep playing or retire for good. His contract is set to expire and Brady will be an unrestricted free agent unless the Bucs resign him.

“Not the way we wanted to end it, but we didn’t deserve it,” Brady said. “I give them a lot of credit. They played a good game. Made a lot more plays than we did, so a tough night.” The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Super Bowl LV champions, will take on the Dallas Cowboys at Raymond James Stadium in Florida on Thursday night. Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady will officially begin his 22nd season in the NFL when he steps onto the field, while Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott will make his long-awaited return after being sidelined since suffering a gruesome ankle injury in Oct. 2020.
