Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski (still weird to type that) and tennis great Venus Williams used some interesting props for their video workout on Friday.
Williams has been hosting video workouts throughout the coronavirus crisis and she got help from the former Patriots tight end, who earlier this week joined his former teammate Tom Brady and became a member of the Bucs.
Williams used one of her US Open trophies as a weight as part of her routine, so not to be outdone, Gronk opted for a Patriots Super Bowl trophy for his workout.

Gronk said it was the Super Bowl 53 Lombardi Trophy and went on to describe the Pats' victory over the Rams in that game, his last in a Patriots uniform. That victory was set up by this last catch he made for New England.
I'm just going to continue to believe this was the end of Gronk's career, because it was perfect.https://t.co/OX0srE66tc

And if that was the Lombardi Trophy Gronk dented by swinging at a pitch with it at Fenway Park a few years back, it appears to be as good as new.
