The more and more Rob Gronkowskit talks about his injuries, the clearer it sounds that he is likely done with the National Football League.
The former New England Patriots tight end recently joined NBC News on Wednesday and talked about the toll his NFL career took on him physically and mentally.
Gronk mentioned that he had “liquid” in his head as a result of the punishment he endured:
“No lie, I felt my head, I used to have liquid,” Gronkowski said. “It used to be thick, like, my head used to be thicker—a centimeter of liquid in some spots. And you’d be like, what the heck? You could put indents in my head.”
He also revealed that he experienced “mood swings,” which he attributed to potential brain injuries.
Gronk retired from the NFL soon after the Patriots Super Bowl win over the Los Angeles Rams in February.
Earlier this week, he announced his new business venture with his partnership with CBDMedic, which produces CBD products for pain relief.
Despite his words, the speculation to him making a return will only go stronger if the Patriots struggle to replace him at tight end.
