-- Tom Brady is stirring the pot on the theory that Rob Gronkowski will soon return to the NFL.

Gronkowski announced his retirement last week and some think it might not last long.

Brady added fuel to that idea with a comment on an Instagram post from the NFL‘s account showing Gronkowski has the most receiving touchdowns from Brady with 78.

Tom Brady is playing with all of us... or does he know?

“I hope 78 isn’t the final number,” Brady commented, along with a laughing emoji.

Brady is probably joking but it is possible he knows something we don’t.

-- In other Gronkowski news, the former tight end has officially sold his condo in Boston’s seaport.

His penthouse unit comes with two parking spaces, indoor and outdoor, memorabilia and a private roof deck.
