Rob Gronkowski dominated the football field during his NFL career. When he retired at the end of the 2021 season, the legendary tight end was still at the top of the game.
Wherever he goes, the question of a comeback to the league follows him. And now, Gronkowski has dropped a huge update about his future, months after his best friend Tom Brady hung his cleats. Fans widely regard Gronk as one of the best, if not the best, tight ends to ever play the game. So, will he return to the NFL again?
This is what he had to say.
Is Rob Gronkowski returning to the NFL?
Rob Gronkowski updated the fans about his future plans in a recent interview. There he responded to the ever-present question about his return to the league again. And the fans won’t like what he had to say.
“There’s no chance anymore. “I’m happily retired,” Gronkowski told TMZ Sports. But retirement doesn’t mean that the four-time Super Bowl champion has stopped competing.
Just that his opponent now is his own brother. Gronkowski revealed that he spends his time playing Pickleball and is rather good at it. Why isn’t anyone surprised? “I beat my brother, Chris, who plays with pros, and my other brother, Gordon, who plays with pros too! And I beat ’em with an average Joe — my other brother, Glenn G., was my partner!” Gronk added.
Fans should finally move on from the good old days of the Tom Brady-Rob Gronkowski partnership. The duo tore up the NFL in both the New England Patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers colors. Both are now happily retired after achieving more than anybody could even dream of.
