-- Rob Gronkowski teased another announcement to fans on Sunday and has been dropping some hints about what he might say. 

After posting a video to Instagram to announce he will make an announcement on Tuesday, Gronkowski posted a Tom Brady video to Facebook that could be a clue for the announcement topic. 

Gronkowski reposted a video posted by Brady in 2016, in which Brady uses a conch shell to assemble his receivers. 

“Tom Brady, do you think this thing still works?!!,” Gronkowski wrote. 

This could mean his announcement will be about returning to football or it could mean he will be announcing another new ad campaign. Time will tell. 

-- Tom Brady and LeBron James tweeted to each other this weekend and Twitter could hardly handle it. 

It started when Bleacher Report tweeted out a quote from James comparing himself to Brady and Brady responded with, “I’m playing until I can’t dunk anymore! @KingJames.”

To which James responded, “Well I’m playing until I can’t throw TD passes anymore! @TomBrady.”

And people really want James and Brady to hang out in real life. 

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Yeah, he was crying. He did that on film a lot. If you get into him, he don’t get the ball, or if he don’t get a call, he’ll cry. But, he’s a good receiver. He’s a good tight end. He’s a great player.” -- Stephon Gilmore, on Zach Ertz
