Brady, Edelman react to Gronkowski denting the Lombardi Trophy  

New England Patriots star Tom Brady has weighed in on Rob Gronkowski's latest stunt.

The Patriots revealed on Wednesday that Gronkowski dented the most recent Lombardi Trophy when the team threw out the first pitch at a Boston Red Sox game on April 9.

The 29-year-old used the trophy as a bat and damaged it while attempting to bunt a warmup toss thrown by Julian Edelman.

Brady took to Twitter shortly after the team released a video of the incident, shocked by Gronkowski.

Edelman also reacted to the news on his Twitter account.

"No comment," Edelman wrote.

Several of Gronkowski's team-mates, including safety Duron Harmon, discussed the event in an interview with Patriots.com.

"You can't hide a baseball dent in there," Harmon said. "Everybody literally went to the trophy and saw it. I think Rob thought it was more funny than anything.

"The funniest thing about it all was it actually was a really good bunt. Like it was perfect technique. I don't even understand how he controlled the Lombardi. If the Red Sox had bunting practice, that would be teaching tape for them. He does everything perfect."

Meanwhile, Gronkowski announced his retirement on Instagram in late March. He spent all nine of his NFL seasons in New England.

Gronkowski finished his career with 521 regular-season catches for 7,861 yards and 79 touchdowns. He is the Patriots' career leader in touchdowns and is tied for the second-most receiving scores in playoff history.
