Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski Continue To Share Their Appreciation Towards Supportive Patriots FansBenny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Quarterback Tom Brady may be squarely focused on bringing a Super Bowl title to Tampa Bay this upcoming Sunday, but he made sure to remind everyone back in New England he hasn’t forgotten about them.

On Wednesday, Brady again discussed his appreciation for the area and the all support he’s still receiving from fans despite being a Buccaneer.

“Obviously any time you change teams, you don’t know how it’s going to go. I think there has been incredible support I’ve had from the team I used to play for, all the New England fans, and I still obviously have great affection for New England,” Brady said. “I said the other day, my kids were born in Boston. So, I have a lot of love for Boston and all of New England and the incredible support over the years.

“Again, it was an amazing two decades of my life. I’ll always have a presence there.”

Many of Brady’s former Patriots teammates have also been seen rooting him on via social media all postseason and he made sure to thank them too for all their support.

“I have a lot of friends there,” Brady went on to say. “It’s just really cool to be able to have that experience in my life. And then again, have my football journey take me to somewhere else and then come down here, and play for a different team but still have incredible support. Even all the guys I used to play with in New England, I still have a lot of friends, I’ve heard from so many teammates, so many of my old coaches that are wishing me luck,” Brady said. “It’s been really cool.”

Brady’s recent sentiments towards New England follow similar reminiscing shared by tight end Rob Gronkowski on Tuesday.

“Those years in New England mean everything to me,” Gronkowski said during Super Bowl “Opening Night.” “That’s where I started my career. That’s where the legend of Gronk started. That’s where it boomed. I appreciate those times. I am grateful for all those times. Just everything there. I learned so much throughout those times. I feel like I grew throughout those times, throughout my time in New England.”

“I feel like I learned so much information just about the game of football, about the game of life, just everything overall throughout my nine years there. My family, my friends that I met throughout my time there. Just the people. Just everything. Just the atmosphere. Those times are appreciated.”

“That will always be in a special place in my heart throughout those nine years that I was there. I have definitely taken some of those lessons I’ve learned and brought them with me to the next chapter in my life, too, and it has definitely helped me out to get to where I am now.”

Assuming fans will be hopefully be allowed back, the Tampa Bay Buccaneer’s are scheduled to have a Brady/Gronk homecoming game at Gillette Stadium during the 2021 season but for now, it’s onto their sixth Super Bowl appearance together.
