When was this?
It was over comments Brady made to Kraft about signing AB.

Started with this:
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is "a million percent in" on the team's signing of Antonio Brown, owner Robert Kraft told NBC on Sunday night.

And then there was this:
Prior to the Patriots-Steelers game in Week 1 on NBC, Al Michaels relayed a conversation between the quarterback and owner where Brady said he was "a million percent in" on the move.

The 42-year-old did not want that to be made public.

“That was a private conversation that I wish had remained private," he said.

Bedard actually shared some information on the 98.5 postgame show re: retirement papers. Basically, he thinks the fact Gronk hasn’t filed papers means nothing because players sometimes never file or wait years to file. The reason you file is to collect retirement benefits, which for a guy like a Gronk are probably not substantial.

Also, has been well documented, the guy put away all his game salary and lived off his endorsement money. He’ll be fine unless some financial advisor embezzles it or puts it into super shady shit.
