Earlier this offseason, Rob Gronkowski decided to hang up his cleats for good and retire from the game he loves after winning his 3rd NFL title.
At the age of 30-years-old, he has his life ahead of him with millions in his bank account, but is he truly retired from football.
According to the Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman, there are many inside the Patriots organization that believe the tight end just might come out of retirement and join the team during the 2019 season.
“Former Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski made a public appearance recently and said he was done with football. What I can tell you is few people, including sources on the Patriots, believe that.
The belief is that once the season gets going, and Gronkowski starts missing football, he will rejoin the team. It’s not just a hunch, sources say; you can count on it.”
Saying “you can count on it” makes this report very interesting.
New England could definitely use his help, especially since Ben Watson will be serving a four-game suspension to begin the season, and Austin Seferian-Jenkins has been cut.
