“You know, there’s a little spin to that question,” Gronkowski said. ”I think it’s, will (Brady’s wife) Gisele (Bundchen) let Tom play ‘til 50?”

“That is a way better question,” Brady said. “And in fact, why would they not Google that? I think they should. That is, of course no, that answer.

“I’m just kidding,” Brady continued. “Sorry, babe. I love you. You would let me. You would let me do anything as long as I’m happy.”

Jason Pierre-Paul hurt?

Jason Pierre-Paul did not practice Thursday due to a hand injury. The Bucs have given no further details, but Pierre-Paul was limited in practice Wednesday.

The Bucs also were without defensive lineman Steve McLendon, but the club said it was not injury-related. Receiver Antonio Brown (knee), Shaquil Barrett (back) and safety Jordan Whitehead (hamstring) all returned.


Bowles: Secondary will be better

The self-proclaimed “Grave Diggers” put down their shovels against the Cowboys and allowed Dak Prescott to pass for 403 yards with three touchdowns and one interception.

Tampa Bay’s young secondary demonstrated some poor tackling and otherwise stunk it up in a 31-29 win over the Cowboys. Cornerback Carlton Davis played well with an interception and three pass-breakups. The Bucs also suffered the loss of cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting, who dislocated his right elbow in the first quarter and is on injured reserve.

The Bucs are likely to see more screens to the perimeter if they don’t get it stopped.
