The former NFL tight end joked with Entertainment Tonight that not only was Brady’s “hand placement” all wrong, he also should’ve shown more.
“I don’t think he did it right… his hand is not in the right place,” Gronkowski told the outlet at Fox’s Sports Day. “He’s covering up a little bit. You’re not supposed to be covering up!”
Gronkowski, 33, explained that Brady failed by not showing off what he was “supposed to be showing.”
“You gotta show the package, Tom,” he joked.
The former Patriots player admitted he was a little “shocked” when Brady, 45, posted the photo because it’s so out of character.
“It’s uncharacteristic of him, for sure. But that’s what we love about Tom,” he added with a laugh. “When he throws a curveball, it’s always for the fun and it’s always great to see him doing that.”
