But one of Gronk’s former teammates weighed in on the matter earlier this month and he thinks Gronk truly is done — for a pretty simple reason.
In an interview with Spox, translated by Pats Pulpit, Sebastian Vollmer — who played offensive tackle for the New England Patriots between 2009 to 2015 — explained why he believes Gronkowski won’t make a comeback.
“I don’t think he will come back again,” Vollmer said. “Just looking at his physical shape, I don’t think he’d be able to pull it off.”
A report has surfaced that Gronkowski has not been lifting weights since retiring, and pictures of him lately show a somewhat slimmed-down version of the 30-year-old. Because of that, it probably would take him a little while to get back into game shape.
