Another Gronkowski tweet after another Gronkowski report

This is how modern journalism gets made.

We have a report, followed by the inevitable wait for a tweeted response from the subject of the report.

While short on specifics or solid language, Ian Rapaport of the NFL Network said yesterday that the expectation remains that Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was going to return this season.

Given the weeks of retirement speculation fueled by Gronkowski himself after the Super Bowl, and the vacuum of actual information, it’s as much as we’ve had.

But after Rapoport’s report, Gronkowski tweeted out what could be a denial (or something).

Whether that’s in reference to Rapoport, or whether he was confused by a drink menu, or was watching a bad ’90s movie is unclear.

But we’ll keep monitoring, to see if Gronkowski ends up back on the field, or in the WWE, or wherever the world of Gronk takes him next.

25 responses to “Another Gronkowski tweet after another Gronkowski report

  1. Likely in response to the lengthy “insider scoop” by Greg Bedard that Gronk wants to retire because Billy B isn’t “fun” and cracked down on “TD celebrations” and general tomfoolery at training camp.

  2. Can we get some kind of expert to decipher the emoji for us? Maybe a electronic forensics specialist to identify where the tweet was sent from? I really feel like we need to be spending more time analyzing these tweets.

  3. Get ready for another The Decision special on ESPN.

    Where Gronk will announce he is keeping his talents in New England, to the surprise of nobody.

  4. Gronk
    Bennett
    Edelman
    Amendola
    Hogan
    Cooks
    Mitchell

    Brady…..Wow is there a stronger wide receiver core in Football?

    Now add

    James White
    Burkhead
    Or Maybe Lewis

    Pencil the Pats back into the AFC Championship Game.

  5. This is getting stupid. Why doesn’t he just say he is going to play if he is. His antics are getting tiresome. I understand it is his life and he needs time to decide, but idiotic cryptic tweets he has been making the last few weeks are annoying. Just don’t say anything if you’re not going to give an actual answer. At this point I hope he does retire because I’m over his stupidity. He is just a child in a grown man’s body. The more this goes on the more he reminds me of Tom Hank in the movie Big lol.

    Actually their wife reciever core isn’t that strong at all. Their best passing threat is a tight end and other than maybe a Edelman the rest are average wr’s that just have the advantage of playing with Tom Brady. It’s like when Manning carried many players and got hem a ton of money (see TE Thomas as the most recent example). Let see how much interest Amendola has this season as a situational 30 something wr. I’d imagine he stays in NE mainly because only stupid teams are going to pay him. Most actually competive playoff caliber teams won’t give him a sniff…

  7. Sorry, I stand corrected I forgot to add cooks to the above average wide receiver group. That still puts them way behind the Steelers as the best wide receiver core. So no they definitely do not have the best wide receiver core in the NFL. Not even close…

    Ha! That is a terrible WR core. Of the players on that list, Gronk and maybe Cooks would start on other teams. The rest of the players can thank Brady and Belichick.

  9. “Let see how much interest Amendola has this season as a situational 30 something wr. I’d imagine he stays in NE mainly because only stupid teams are going to pay him. Most actually competive playoff caliber teams won’t give him a sniff…”

    I hope so because Amendola comes up big in the playoffs and I would very much like him to stay with the Pats.

    Its not his antics. This tweet is the single only thing he has said since the superbowl. All the noise you have been hearing has not been Grink, its everyone else talking about Gronk all giving their version of what he is thinking. The reason it sounds so back and forth is because every insider expert that knows exactly what Gronk is thinking has a different answer. If you are truly sick io it then just tune out. If you click into every article about what Grink is thinkng to comment on how sick of him you are then thats just you rubbing salt into your own wounds.

    Depends if you are looking for individual stats or end results on the scoreboard. When the ball is going to that many guys no one gets stats. But also no one has ever proven able to cover that group.

  13. Brady has always made average receivers look great. some were even below average. He made some of these guys a lot of money when they left to get paid and then returned to the middle. I hope they find a way to keep Amendola, who is not only well above average, but clutch too.
