On the latest episode of Bussin' With The Boys, our guy Will Compton sat down with two of my very best friends: Big Cat and Bucs Linebacker Lavonte David. And while Lavonte may or may not be aware of my existence, I've been breaking down his game tape since 2015 and feel like we have a great relationship.
Yesterday was the first day in pads and Will asked Lavonte about being teammates with the two legendary Patriots Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski:
“They kind of like celebrities when they outside the locker room, but when they in the locker room, they just homies. That’s what they’re all about. For real.”
For me, as a fan of the team for the past 23 years, it's been a dream to have Tom Brady actually be our signal caller, but it was cool to hear from one of our team's cornerstone's felt the same.
“For me personally it’s been surreal. I haven’t grasped it yet that I’m playing with Tom Brady. Crazy.”
“We on the field, you can see the competitiveness in him. He brings a great sense of urgency. He brings a sense of urgency to the other side of the ball and it’s crazy. I’m still trying to get the hang of it, but it’s fun. He’s a dude, a great person off the field. He’s one of the boys.”
Tom Brady - obviously one of THE BOYS!
And the spike after the TD, hearing Gronk didn't just return to the NFL on a whim. Our guy is ready:
“Gronk is just a straight baller. He’s a football player. You can tell he’s just a beast. He’s been working out the whole time he’s been away from football”
