Former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski certainly keeps giving hints that he might return to the New England Patriots at some point during the 2019 season.
“I could easily go out there right now and go,” he said on the RapSheet and Friends podcast with Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. He added he would need a month—”if that”—of training.
“You always want to go with what you’re truly feeling, even if it doesn’t make sense to someone else. If it makes sense to you, then it makes sense to do that. If I get the gut feeling, that’s what I would need. My soul would have to be on fire, and I wouldn’t just listen to it for one day. It would have to be a consistent basis, too.”
Gronk then took his talents to Adam Schefter’s podcast and hilariously reacted to the question of what he would do if Tom Brady called him late in the season and asked him to come back for the final few games before the postseason.
Gronk racked up 47 catches for 682 yards and three touchdowns during the 2018 season, but he had a combined 12 catches for 166 yards in the AFC Championship Game win over the Kansas City Chiefs and Super Bowl win over the Los Angeles Rams.
Yeah, If I was the Patriots, I would want that type of production back as well.
