All-Time Great, Rob Gronkowski Announces Retirement

Patriots Tight-End Rob Gronkowski announced his retirement via Instagram on Sunday Afternoon

It all started at 20 years old on stage at the NFL draft when my dream came true, and now here I am about to turn 30 in a few months with a decision I feel is the biggest of my life so far. I will be retiring from the game of football today. I am so grateful for the opportunity that Mr. Kraft and Coach Belichick gave to me when drafting my silliness in 2010. My life experiences over the last 9 years have been amazing both on and off the field. The people I have meet, the relationships I have built, the championships I have been apart of, I just want to thank the whole New England Patriots organization for every opportunity I have been giving and learning the great values of life that I can apply to mine. Thank you to all of Pats Nation around the world for the incredible support since I have been apart of this 1st class organization. Thank you for everyone accepting who I am and the dedication I have put into my work to be the best player I could be. But now its time to move forward and move forward with a big smile knowing that the New England Patriots Organization, Pats Nation, and all my fans will be truly a big part of my heart for rest of my life. It was truly an incredible honor to play for such a great established organization and able to come in to continue and contribute to keep building success. To all my current and past teammates, thank you for making each team every year special to be apart of. I will truly miss you guys. Cheers to all who have been part of this journey, cheers to the past for the incredible memories, and a HUGE cheers to the uncertain of whats next.

It is a sad day for football, as one of the greatest tight-ends in NFL history has announced his retirement. We all know how much of a monster Rob Gronkowski is on the field, but there is a whole other side to Gronk. I, as well as many other Americans can’t stand the New England Patriots or the players who reside there. Well, all players other than Gronk. For 9 years, Gronk has been one of the most entertaining and dominant players in the league and it’s gonna be kind of weird to see the league without him.

Known for the infamous “Gronk Spike”, Rob Gronkowski was somewhat injury-prone throughout his career, limiting the greatness that we saw from the future Hall-of-Famer. Nonetheless, Gronk is the only Patriots player who I liked over the span of their dynasty. One of the most potent personalities in all of sports, Gronk has been rumored to be working towards a contract with the WWE. While I’m not sure that this is the path he will take, he has PLENTY of options for the next-chapter in his life. PLENTY
