Not everyone agrees that Rob Gronkowski has officially retired. The future Hall of Fame tight end will thus continue to reiterate his intention to leave the NFL. But since he has already actually retired once, it will be incredibly challenging to do so permanently.
Tuesday in Boston,”I’m done with football” Gronk declared at a sponsor event. “I enjoy the game. And undoubtedly fortunate for all the chances the game of football has given me and the connections I’ve forged — obviously, nine seasons here in New England and two down in Tampa. However, I’ve had enough of football and am ready to go on to other endeavors and the business world to see what’s out there and where I can fit in.”
When Gronkowski announced his retirement, the tight end’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, fueled rumors that it wasn’t a long-term decision, stating Gronkowski would find it difficult to turn down his best friend if Tom Brady reached out during the 2022 season.
