The New England Patriots boast the NFL’s best tight end in Rob Gronkowski, but his future suddenly is shrouded in uncertainty.
A report surfaced shortly before Super Bowl LII that Gronkowski was mulling retirement, and the five-time All-Pro did not deny those rumors after the Patriots’ 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
