Jon Gruden Blew Deal To Land Tom Brady, Gronk – OutKick


The Las Vegas Raiders apparently almost landed Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski.

During the UFC 278 broadcast, the UFC president joined Gronk and shared a story NFL fans had never heard before.

White claimed a deal was all but done to bring Brady and his favorite tight end to the Raiders in 2020 when the QB decided to ditch the Patriots. However, Jon Gruden blew the deal at the last minute.

“It was almost a done deal, and at the last minute Gruden blew the deal and said he didn’t want them. Then all hell broke loose…Las Vegas would have Brady and Gronk the year the Bucs won the Super Bowl, but Gruden blew the deal,” White explained.

He later added that he had no intention of sharing this story with the public, but it is now available.

Instead of joining the Raiders in the 2020 offseason, Brady left the Patriots after winning six rings with Bill Belichick, bringing Rob Gronkowski out of retirement and the duo winning a ring in their first year with the Bucs.

Instead of doing it with Bruce Arians and the Buccaneers, the pair could have done it with Gruden and the Raiders. If you’re a fan of silver and black, you may not like hearing this story.

Additionally, there has long been speculation about which team Brady was referring to when he said a franchise pulled out in the 11th hour in free agency, and that they were “sticking” with the ” motherf**ker” that they already had.

Now, it’s clear that the team Brady was referring to was the Raiders.

Fans are definitely going to need a deep dive into this situation after what White shared, because there will be a lot of questions. The NFL is truly an incredibly league.
