Despite having been retired from the NFL for multiple seasons now, Rob Gronkowski is still out here catching strays.

Baltimore Ravens running back Kenyan Drake, who just re-signed with the team this week, went viral Thursday for the hoodie he wore to Baltimore’s practice facility. Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey posted a picture of Drake in a hoodie that read “Gronkowski didn’t have the …” with an image of a geometric angle underneath.

Check it out.

That is, of course, a reference to the famous 2018 “Miracle in Miami.” Drake, part of the Miami Dolphins at the time, scored the game-winning TD on an improbable play as time expired. Gronkowski, who was on the New England Patriots, entered the game on defense for the final play as a 6-foot-6, 265-pound body to clog up the goal line on a potential Hail Mary throw. But when Miami went with a shorter throw and a series of laterals instead, Gronkowski became BBQ pork in the open field as Drake beat him to the corner of the end zone to give Miami an incredible 34-33 win. Meanwhile, TV broadcaster Ian Eagle’s call on the play of “Gronkowski didn’t have the angle!” went down in football lore (and also inspired Drake’s hoodie above).

Granted, Gronkowski, a four-time Super Bowl champ and sure-fire Hall of Famer, won’t be too bothered by the dig. In fact, Gronk would probably appreciate it having had similar fun at the expense of others before.
