Rob Gronkowski Still Mulling Retirement, Decision Expected Soon


New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is once again mulling his future in professional football.

While Gronk flirted with retirement a year ago before returning to the Patriots and winning another Super Bowl, he is said to be weighing his future in the sport once again. Gronkowski’s agent Drew Rosenhaus was on NFL Live and provided an update per Field Yates of ESPN.

“He’s thinking it through, he’s giving it a lot of thought,” Rosenhaus said on NFL Live. “I imagine a decision will happen in the next couple of weeks.”

Gronkowski, 29, refused to discuss his future during the Patriots’ run to the Super Bowl. After winning, he told reporters he’d take a week or two to think over his future. Gronk has reportedly visited Gillette Stadium multiple times since winning the Super Bowl.

Gronkoski has had a stellar career to date, being named a First-Team All-Pro four times. He has been plagued by injuries over the years though and appeared to have “lost a step” in 2018 but was still serviceable as an elite blocking tight end.

Gronk finished the year with only 3 touchdowns on 47 receptions and 682 receiving yards.
