Rob Gronkowski’s Reported Offseason Workouts Will Fire Up Patriots Fans

Maybe Rob Gronkowski is going to keep doing this football thing after all.

Rumors of Gronkowski’s potential NFL retirement began to swirl after the star tight end wouldn’t commit to playing in 2018 following the New England Patriots’ Super Bowl LII loss. Gronkowski’s cryptic social media activity have led some to believe that he’s walking away from the league, but other reports indicate Gronk will be suiting up for the Patriots next season.

There’s still no official word on Gronkowski’s status for the 2018 campaign, but the latest report from NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport lends one to believe the five-time Pro Bowl selection is gearing up for his ninth NFL season.

Music to Patriots fans’ ears.

The football world might have to wait some time for an official word from Gronkowski, though, as the 28-year-old reportedly is in “no hurry” to make a decision about his football future.
