  • -My next guest has been selected to five NFL pro bowls

  • and is one of the greatest tight ends to ever play the game.

  • On Sunday, he won his fourth Super Bowl ring

  • and his first as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  • Here is one of our favorites, Rob Gronkowski.

  • Gronk!

  • -What's up, Jimmy? I got to give a cheers to that, baby.

  • -Come on. -Super Bowl champs.

  • -I got to say, buddy, I was so happy for you.

  • Congratulations, first of all.

  • I was happy just from the first touchdown.

  • When you caught that, I go, "That's it.

  • That's all I need. That's the win right there.

  • Just take that."

  • And I'm just so psyched, 'cause you know we love you.

  • And you're just fun every single time.

  • And you're so -- I just -- Everybody loves you.

  • Everyone's rooting for you, pal.

  • And then you announced your retirement,

  • and I go, "Yeah, I guess I'm down with that."

  • I just want you to play forever.

  • But I'm like, "Okay, I understand.

  • He's smart. He wants to get out."

  • Then you end up on "Masked Singer."

  • You're the white tiger on "Masked Singer."

  • Gosh, what a weird year. It is so fascinating.

  • You went from White Tiger to winning the Super Bowl.

  • How does it feel --

  • I know you're doing a bunch of interviews.

  • Has it sunk in yet?

  • You're a four-time Super Bowl champion, bud.

  • -Yes, you know, it really hasn't sunken in yet.

  • Yeah, I've been just talking to my friends and family,

  • I'm like, it feels like surreal.

  • Like, it feels like, you know, like it didn't even happen.

  • But it did happen.

  • Like, it just happened with like a blink of an eye.

  • I just remember being traded to Tampa Bay like it was yesterday.

  • And then a whole season has happened,

  • with the whole pandemic going on and everything.

  • It's just been an amazing ride.

  • It's been an amazing journey.

  • And it's actually just incredible.

  • Like you said, I was the white tiger on "Masked Singer."

  • You know? And I was talking football

  • on Fox for a couple weeks, end of the last season.

  • And then I had a Super Bowl party

  • last year at the Super Bowl,

  • and then I come back out of retirement,

  • and then, you're right.

  • I'm like, "Whoa, we're in the playoffs."

  • Like, this is an incredible year. Back to the playoffs.

  • You know, the Bucs haven't been to the playoffs since 2007.

  • And then all of a sudden, win three away games on the road.

  • Washington, they had a top-10 defense.

  • New Orleans, they beat us twice in regular season,

  • with Drew Brees.

  • We go there, they have a top-10 defense, beat them,

  • and then go to Green Bay, you know, with that tradition there,

  • and just win versus the MVP, Aaron Rodgers.

  • It's just an incredible journey.

  • And then go to the Super Bowl at our home stadium,

  • first time ever, and win it all, man.

  • It's been an incredible ride.

  • And it's been surreal, man.

  • -You caught two touchdown passes,

  • and of course, you had to do the Gronk spike,

  • which is awesome and hopefully trademarked and whatever.

  • And, dude, that should be an alcoholic beverage,

  • the Gronk Spike.

  • -Oh, yeah.

  • Dang, that's true. -You just put a little spike

  • in your juice, in your orange juice.

  • -That could be dangerous. -But it's Gronk Spike.

  • It could be dangerous. -I know.

  • -It could be fun. -Yeah.

  • -Dude, start talking to people.

  • You know who to talk to. -It could be deadly.

  • I love it. -Yeah.

  • But, dude, look at the spike.

  • Please show this thing, because I love it.

  • It's just extreme!

  • And you go for it. -Oh.

  • -If I did that, and I really practiced,

  • and I spent like probably, you know,

  • 10 years of my life focusing on that,

  • here's what would happen with me. I would spike it,

  • and it would probably bounce and hit me in the helmet.

  • And it would be all over the Internet.

  • Is there a way to throw it

  • so that it doesn't go back in your face?

  • -Well, I got two bloopers in my life before.

  • But the way to throw is you just put your palm on the football,

  • and then, you know, with a good, great grip using your palm.

  • And then when you bounce it, you kind of bounce it

  • with the belly of the football, you know,

  • the big part of the football where it sticks out.

  • And then it hits the ground high, with full potential.

  • And then that gives it its best chance to bounce the highest

  • is when it hits off the belly.

  • But I've had it before where it has came back at me

  • and hit me right in the you-know-where.

  • You know, the gonads.

  • And I was like, "Ooh."

  • -Wait, I don't know what you mean.

  • What do you mean by gonads?

  • Let me google gonads. Siri.

  • -Yeah, gonads, it's, you know, a little slang for --

  • -Siri.

  • Siri. What are g--

  • Siri. What are --

  • [ Both laugh ]

  • I don't know what I'm talking about.

  • -Yeah, I don't know if Siri knows --

  • If Siri knows what gonads are, I mean --

  • -This is nothing but perfect.

  • The photos, every photo of you, you look great.

  • You and Tom, there's a picture

  • of you guys taking in the Super Bowl win together.

  • How does that relationship work

  • between you and the quarterback, you and Tom?

  • Do you guys -- When you first started and you met him,

  • did you have to like go hang out with him after practice?

  • Did you go see movies? What'd you do?

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • It's a great question.

  • You know, as a rookie, it's a little,

  • you know, it's a little difficult task.

  • I mean, it's kind of hard to, you know, get yourself in

  • and build up that chemistry with the quarterback.

  • But when I was a rookie, actually, Tom --

  • When I got into the league,

  • Tom was actually still older than I am now.

  • He was 32 years old when I started playing.

  • And I'm only 31 right now. So that's pretty incredible.

  • Like, I retired, came back, came to Tampa,

  • and I'm still not even his age when I first met him,

  • which is incredible.

  • -That's bizarre. -But like --

  • Yeah, obviously, when I first met him,

  • like I was like, "Ooh," you know, like --

  • You know, it's Tom.

  • Like, it just this dream come true.

  • And then I just saw the way that everyone worked.

  • And when I came in as a rookie,

  • I was open-minded just to get it done,

  • whatever I had to do, you know, to be respected,

  • to get out on the field, to get some playing time.

  • And let me tell you, he works you.

  • He grinds you sometimes.

  • Like, he can get you, too, like, man, like --

  • -Right? -He wants me to keep going?

  • He wants me to keep going? I already did 50 routes.

  • Like, oh, 10 more?

  • Like, and he won't take a no.

  • -Your first three Super Bowls came with the Patriots.

  • Have you talked to Belichick at all?

  • -No, I have not.

  • -You haven't received any voicemails

  • of somebody going like [Growls]

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • No, no, I have not.

  • -[ Chuckles ] You have to call that guy.

  • Come on. You got to get him on speakerphone right now

  • and be like, "Yo!" -You give him a call.

  • He was on your show before. -I'm afraid of him!

  • I'm afraid of him. I'm not going to call that dude.

  • Are you kidding me, man?

  • Hey, we love you, man.

  • Keep it up and just, I don't know, keep being awesome.

  • I'm sure we're gonna see you back next season.

  • You have to.

  • -Yeah. Yeah, hopefully, man.

  • I don't see why I won't be back with the Bucs.

  • But we can have a great team coming back, too.

  • Obviously, we just won it all.

  • Super Bowl LV champs.

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers, baby.

  • But, you know, it's already two days, you know, past the game,

  • and I'm already thinking, like,

  • "Man, what's it going to be like next year?

  • Can we make it back? What do I got to do?"

  • So, that's already in my mind.

  • Pretty crazy.

  • -Keep us guessing. Keep us guessing.

  • I don't know what you're going to do next.

  • -Maybe I'll retire again.

  • Hey, I got an idea. I got an idea.

  • Maybe I'll retire just so I don't do training camp,

  • 'cause training camp, like --

  • -That's the worst part. -Yeah.

  • -Brilliant. -Training camp, like --

  • Yeah. And then I'll come back

  • like oh, oh, a week before the --

  • "Hey, will you guys take me back?

  • Okay, yeah, yeah, I'll come back. Yeah.

  • Oh, it's game time? Oh, perfect."

  • -Congratulations. Enjoy it. Enjoy it.

  • You worked hard. Enjoy it.

  • Thank you so much for doing our show.

  • I appreciate it, buddy. -No problem, man.

  • -Four-time Super Bowl champion Rob Gronkowski, everybody.

-My next guest has been selected to five NFL pro bowls
