Gronkowski Re-Retires, But Can He Resist Another Brady Invite?

  • Gronkowski has earned $70M through his NFL contracts, but reportedly hasn’t spent any of it, choosing to live off endorsements.
  • His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, believes he’d make a second comeback if Tom Brady needed his services.

One of the greatest tight ends of all time is calling it a career for a second time — but maybe not the last.

On Tuesday, Rob Gronkowski announced his retirement from the NFL via his social media channels.

The 33-year-old first retired in 2019 after winning Super Bowl LIII with the Patriots — claiming his many injuries over the years had taken a toll on his mental health — only to rejoin Tom Brady at Tampa Bay for the 2020 season.

The oft-injured Gronk only played 143 games over his 11-season career — but the seismic impact he made in that time should send him straight to Canton.

  • Gronkowski finishes his career with 92 receiving TDs — third all-time among TEs and 12th at any position.
  • His average of 0.64 REC TD per game is easily the most all-time among qualified TEs.
  • The 17 touchdowns he caught in 2011 led the NFL and is tied for the sixth-most in any single season.
  • He was a four-time first-team All-Pro, the 2014 Comeback Player of the Year, and a crucial part of four Super Bowl-winning teams.

Gronkowski has earned $70 million through his NFL contracts — but reportedly hasn’t spent any of it, choosing to live off endorsements with high-profile brands including Dunkin’, USAA, Visa, and T-Mobile.

Of course, Gronk’s latest retirement may not stick for long.

His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, believes he’d make a second comeback if Brady needed his services — and the GOAT has already implied he’ll call again.
