Former Patriots Star “Wouldn’t Close Door” on Rob Gronkowski Return to NFL

Rob Gronkowski retired AGAIN, but we have a bunch of people saying that he is plotting his return to the NFL. The tight end spent most of his season with the New England Patirots and spent a couple of seasons playing alongside Tom Brady in Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers benefited from his friendship with Brady and won a championship in 2020. They didn’t make the Super Bowl last season and Gronk thought it’s time to retire.

His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, was the first to say that Gronk may return at some point. There are also people who believe that a single call from TB12 could put Gronk back in the game.

Rob Gronkowski to take a break and return to the NFL

Former Patriots star Logan Ryan couldn’t agree more. He discussed Gronk’s potential return during an appearance on Good Morning Football.

“I wouldn’t close the door, but I definitely think that he’s at peace with his career,” Ryan said, via ProFootballTalk. “He’s a Hall of Famer and arguably the greatest tight end of all time. I’ve been with him, I’ve seen what he’s played through and his body has been beat up through the years. He definitely leaves it all out there. So, I’m not one to speak on it because I put a long soliloquy of a tweet out — all 140 characters — when Tom retired. And then he unretired on me. So, I didn’t put a long tweet out for Gronk.”

The tight end sustained many injuries during his career and he may take another break. He rested for a year before signing a deal with the Buccaneers. Will he do the same?

“You never know, players are taking ownership nowadays and reporting their own news. They’re taking breaks, they’re taking hiatuses and coming back to the sport. And you’re allowed to do that. Either way, I’m proud of Gronk. I’m happy for Gronk. He’s definitely the greatest tight end that I’ve ever played with.”

Brady wouldn’t mind launching the ball in Gronk’s hands again. It’s an ideal scenario for the Buccaneers.
