Rob Gronkowski retires

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has announced his retirement.

Gronk, whose potential retirement has been the subject of a great deal of speculation for more than a year, confirmed on Instagram today that he is calling it a career.

“It all started at 20 years old on stage at the NFL draft when my dream came true, and now here I am about to turn 30 in a few months with a decision I feel is the biggest of my life so far,” Gronkowski wrote. “I will be retiring from the game of football today. I am so grateful for the opportunity that Mr. Kraft and Coach Belichick gave to me when drafting my silliness in 2010. My life experiences over the last 9 years have been amazing both on and off the field. The people I have meet, the relationships I have built, the championships I have been apart of, I just want to thank the whole New England Patriots organization for every opportunity I have been giving and learning the great values of life that I can apply to mine. Thank you to all of Pats Nation around the world for the incredible support since I have been apart of this 1st class organization. Thank you for everyone accepting who I am and the dedication I have put into my work to be the best player I could be. But now its time to move forward and move forward with a big smile knowing that the New England Patriots Organization, Pats Nation, and all my fans will be truly a big part of my heart for rest of my life. It was truly an incredible honor to play for such a great established organization and able to come in to continue and contribute to keep building success. To all my current and past teammates, thank you for making each team every year special to be apart of. I will truly miss you guys. Cheers to all who have been part of this journey, cheers to the past for the incredible memories, and a HUGE cheers to the uncertain of whats next.”

Gronkowski’s retirement leaves a big hole in the Patriots’ offense — and a big hole in the NFL, which just lost one of its most colorful characters.

  1. Well, he’s definitely a hall of famer. Perhaps, he’ll change his mind in a few months. He is arguably the most dominate TE in NFL history. It explains why they picked up Matt LaCosse.

  2. As a Pat’s fan back with Ben “all weather” coates, Gronkowski is definitely Hall of Fame..!! Even when he wasn’t the best he was still better than 90% of the Tightends in the NFL… Wish him all the best in retirement

  3. This is a blow to the Pats for sure. Going to miss that goofy bastard. At least he went out a Champion.

  4. 80 TDs in 115 games. What a stud. Injuries hurt him this year as a pass catcher but he was still a great blocker. Enjoy life after football with the hardware and alot of earnings. Hall of Fame one day for sure.

  5. I have to hand it to Gronk. Great player!

    Kraft always said that Gronk had the softest hands he’s ever seen.

  6. Good for him. What a competitor and seemingly good teammate. Patriots will miss him, none more than Brady.

  7. Enjoy your next chapter big man thanks for keeping the championship engine that is the pats going.

  8. All the fans that said he sucked or they hated him knew they wished he played for their favorite team. He was a character but played the TE position as well as anybody. Not only being a matchup nightmare in the receiving game but blocking like a Offensive Tackle in the run game. Glad he retires after a Superbowl Win..

    I’m sure he’ll do great as a character in Vince McMahan’s show

  9. Now that IS a surprise. Not a shock, but a surprise and a sad announcement for all Pats fans. I wish he could have made it a bit sooner before Cooks signed, but they’ll find a way.

    I wish him all the best and hope he doesn’t regret it.

    Best wishes Rob! Great player but played on a perpetually cheating team.

    Owner is a pure scum, qb proven to have cheated.
    ————————–

    Your life sounds fun. The Pats are a perpetually winning Super Bowl team. Keep up the tears.

  11. Regardless of opionions of the team, this guy embodied a football player and ranks among the best TEs in NFL history. Great career.

  12. Thanks for a Hall of Fame career Gronk. And you ended it on a bang with a great post season and a third championship. And you are indeed the greatest Tight End who ever played the game.

  13. He’s double teamed and everyone knows it’s getting thrown his way and he still makes the play. That’s one of the measures of true greatness for both Gronk and Brady.

  14. Despite his goofball persona he was a class act and the best TE of his generation. I’m happy he’s quitting before his health deteriorated and he’ll always be remembered as a key piece of the Patriots dynasty for years to come

  15. Thanks Gronk for everything. One of the most defining images of professional football is you running in the open field with the ball in your hands… nearly unstoppable.

  16. Thank you champ. Great memories and great moments you gave all of us.

    Feels like this would have happened if the Patriots won it all last year. What a way to go out- making the play that night have won his team the Super Bowl.

    Best of luck.

    #ThankYouGronk

  17. To one of the beat tight ends in the history of football it’s been great watching you play and thanks.
    God Bless
    Next stop Canton HOF

  18. After a failed movie/TV career he’ll spend a some time in the WWE, then his last grasp at relevancy will be a reality show and then a small pod cast no one listens too.

  19. The guy was just so ridiculously fun to watch. I’m glad he took the time to make a decision not based on the rush of emotions from the Super Bowl. Really going to miss him, but the Patriots will adapt as always.

  20. I don’t hate the Pats, but I do dislike (not hate) the arrogance of Pats fans. But I love Gronk. One of the best in the game and he brought a lot to my recent enjoyment of it on and off the field. Rob here’s wishing you the best. You always stood above Pats Nation.

  21. Classy statement. Truly did his own thing within the rules of the league. The NFL is going to miss a free spirit like Rob. All I can say is “Tide pods”– go get’um Rob. Enjoy life!

    The GOAT at his position, I can see him making a comeback mid season.

    As mentioned in an earlier post, I love Gronk. But it always cracks me up how everyone in the modern era is always the GOAT. If any of these players had to play in the NFL where people could actually touch you…sorry folks.

    That said…Gronk sure ranks up there. And highly.

  24. What Gronk accomplished in 9 season, when you factor in that he missed a pretty good amount of games due to injury, is nothing short of amazing. He will be a first ballot HoF. I’ll miss seeing Gronk. He was a great player and what may or may not have gone unnoticed is just how good of a run blocker he way. He was the total package for a TE. Easily one of the best ever at the position.

    Bummer they were caught cheating so many times. Good luck with delusion child.

  26. Not a Pats fan, but Gronk is just someone who was fun to watch. He looked like he was having fun most of the time. He was also one of the smartest football players where money is concerned. 9 years of his career and he didn’t once touch his salary. He lived off of his endorsements. Even if he does nothing else, he should be set for a long time post-football (though I fully expect to see him in something…maybe ESPN will come calling).

  27. This might spur Brady to retire as well. He probably should since he has no one left to throw to.

  28. Bummer they were caught cheating so many times. Good luck with delusion child.

    ——
    Translation: 😭😭😭😭😭😭

  29. A bit surprised but wish him the best. Enjoyed watching him play even though I’m not a pats fan, dude was a great football player.

  30. Best tight end ever. Bigger, stronger, faster than anyone else, with some of the best hands the sport has ever seen at ANY position. Try to remember a Gronk drop. You can’t. He put up with a lot of punishment and a lot of shots intended to injure him by lesser and forgettable football players. I’m looking at you TJ Ward, and you Barry Church and Bernard Pollard. Nobody whose made the kind of money he has should expose himself to the kind of punishment he does if he can afford not to. Nobody could cover Gronk one on one and he was the best blocking TE ever. How fitting he made the game turning play in the Super Bowl. He played goofy, but he was a smart, tough, amazing football player. I think he may be overestimating his post football opportunities, but he really was a joy to watch and I am a Rams fan.

  31. Gronk Smash retirement. As a football fan I’m sorry to see you go. As a person I’m really excited to for you and your retirement. Best of luck Gronk. Thanks for memories of some truly amazing plays.

    How are Pats fans “arrogant”? Just curious.

    Your intense, mentally damaging jealousy does not make Pats fans “arrogant”.

  33. Weird way to retire. Thought next year would be his last. 10 seasons sounds better then 9. Still, his body just must not be up to the task. Helluva te for the Pats. Thanks for the memories.

  34. Nobody could cover Gronk one on one and he was the best blocking TE ever. How fitting he made the game turning play in the Super Bowl.

    ——
    Yup. And his role near the end of the season in the running game to block for Michel and co. was HUGE!

    HOF lock. First ballot and deservedly so.

  35. I am going to miss him but glad to see him go. He took such physical beatings but was still unstoppable. His future opportunities are unlimited. I wish him the very best.

  36. It would have been nice if he could have played one more year, but with his health as it is, it’s completely understandable. Also, he’s retiring a champ- not many can say that in this sport.

    No one rocked cat photos like you Gronk! Best of luck in your next chapter.

    Right, but you gotta remember that when you could actually hit people, the people hitting and getting hit weren’t 6’5″ 265lb guys that can run a 4.5. They were just big dudes. Tough for sure, but I guarantee you that if you took some of the all-time greats and put them in the NFL today, they’d barely register. Joe Greene has said as much. Just like the baseball purists that say ‘Oh its a different era, Babe Ruth is still the best.’ Please. Babe Ruth saw maybe 5 pitches a year over 90mph. Now, he’d see 5 in 1 at bat over 95mph. Linebackers these days are bigger, stronger and faster than half backs and line-man from 50 years ago. Thats just a fact.

  39. Congrats on your retirement! But Pats Nation? Why does every team use it? One nation my man… it’s Raider Nation – that’s it, sorry.

    But I wish you the best. You will certainly be missed by many.

  40. One of the best, most likable, athletes in Boston sports history and that says a lot. Will miss him on and off the field. Does the lords work helping sick kids at Children’s Hospital in Boston. Congratulations Gronk.

  41. An all-time great TE and an all-time great character. The NFL is lesser without his presence. Not the last we’ll hear from him though.

  42. A beast but hated to see him struggling with injuries last few years glad to see him hanging them up before he broke down completely.

  43. First class act all the way. After the Marathon Bombing he used to come and visit patients without the media around at the hospital I work at. He used to call ahead so he could sneak in and out without drawing attention to himself instead focusing on cheering up the victims. One time he and Big Papi walked into my patient’s room together.

  44. Got a love the fact that he he’s been living on just endorsements alone & hasn’t even touched his salary. As a football fan sorry to see him go but maybe now there might be a better chance for someone to beat them in a Super Bowl. They still have Brady and coach Belichick though. Very well prepared for each team they meet.

  45. Kind of relieved he is getting out while he can still move. That is one beaten up body, and I don’t know how he managed a ninth season.

    But no doubt, a great career. Best of health the rest of way, Gronk.

  46. At least we’ll always have that highlight of him playing “defense” against the Dolphins.

  47. The rest of the league just took a huge sigh of relief. He really was a matchup nightmare. Good for him. I’ll always hate they patriots, but only a fool would say wouldn’t want him on your team. An any era player, and he got out before the dynasty declines. The walls of Jericho are coming down, but one last cheers to a very colorful bird in a sea of black and grey.

  48. People actually think Gronkowski is not a HOFer. Hilarious. It’s like these clowns don’t follow the sport. 🙂

    First ballot- I think he deserves it. Admittedly longetivity might be a stumbling block to voters. We’ll see. But he’s a stone cold lock to actually get in the HOF. Most complete TE to ever play. Had he stuck around he would have incinterated all TE records that matter. No doubt about it.

    Arrogant or defensive fans? Seeing people like you attack everything Patriots why would their fans be nice to you. You cry, complain and rely on scandals that have been proven false to get your emotions out there. Then when Pats fans brag about 6 rings to show you how good they are you call that arrogance. Rather be arrogant than a constant crybaby.

  51. Farewell great warrior, we loved watching you , listening to you and enjoyed every minute of your career.

    3 time SB champion, countless big plays.

    Best TE in the history of the game, bar none.

    Thank You Rob.

    **************************************************

    Good post. I had the same thoughts about the hits he took and I remember those names as well. The defensive strategy became two fold. Hit him to injure him and make it look like an accident, or hit him and get him to retaliate, to get him ejected. The guy doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. He had fun, and he did it within the rules and without being a punk. I hate to see him go, but glad we had him while we did.

  53. I’ll believe it when the retirement papers are filed.
    Maybe a contract ploy to renegotiate.
    After all, Tide Pods aren’t cheap.

  54. Besides his great play, the man wore his heart on his sleeve.He didn’t have a phony bone in his body.Thanks for great memories Gronk,and good luck.

  55. AFC Teams are saying to themselves one down 3 more to go (Brady Elderman Billecheck). Enjoy retirement and enjoy the memories well deserved

  57. His spikes after TD’s were hilarious, ( I will miss those the most) his comments post game were hilarious.

    He blocked like a left tackle and after the catch he owned dudes often stiff arming them like them were grammas.

    The Indy game when post game he commented “threw the dude outta the club” was priceless.

    He was not just the best TE, he was an entertainer. How many guys can say that?

    He owned the Jets, owned the Steelers.

    Every team respected him, feared him and felt his wrath.

  58. So many great plays in the clutch. My 2 favs are the 1 handed catch against the Broncos and throwing SBrown outta the club.

  61. Aww man. Probably the right decision. Gonna miss the joy and fun Gronk brought to the game and the Pats. Good luck big guy!

  62. ESPN should hire Gronk to replace Witten on the MNF crew he would bring some energy to the broadcast great career imo the best tight end in this generation….

    It’s 2019 so if anyone in Hollywood tried to remake Blazing Saddles they would probably get the chair. I wish I was over exaggerating……

  64. For 9 years, Gronk has brought some of the best moments to New England, and was a part of 5 great Super Bowls, 3 of which he got to celebrate as victories. Despite injury keeping him down, us, as Patriots nation, learn to block out the haters who deny him the title as GOAT, Top 3, and/or even HOFer.

    For many more great years to come.

  65. Considering his long list of injuries and surgeries, particularly with his back, he absolutely made the right decision. Best wishes for success in whatever he chooses to do. Just stay away from pro wrestling as people do get seriously hurt in that “sport” doing stupid stuff.

    actually, you are wrong

    3 rings = 3 time champion. Our guy sacrificed his body like no player I can ever remember and came back every time, he wason the team, got a ring… and partied like an all star on the duck boats that year. ever heard of a duck boat? You’ll probably tell us they aren’t really boats.

    Little history on the duck boats – they were used during WWII to storm the beaches in Normandy France (by American Patriots)
    to rid the world of Nazis.

  69. Won’t call him the best TE ever, there are quite a few statistically and game-wise that are ahead of him, one of the greats, yes. I’m not in my feelings so I won’t miss him, but I do appreciate his style of play and clutch grabs.

  70. Well done Gronk. Enjoy the rest of your life and I hope you find something to do that you love as much as you loved football.
    Every football fan out there, whether than loved or hated you on the field, would be proud and excited to buy you a drink and get a selfie with you.

    As a Steeler fan, I always wanted them to line James Harrison up against you every play and tell Harrison that his job was to hit you before you crossed the line of scrimmage. That would have been awesome to watch over and over again because who won that battle would probably have changed every play.

  71. He waited until after TE Jared Cook was signed before announcing his retirement. Not that the Patriots are likely to spend oodles of money to sign Jared Cook but that was at least a possibility. His old coach probably does not appreciate the timing of his announcement.

  72. Will Gronk be the youngest player elected to the HOF? Gale Sayers was 34 and Gronk will be 34 in 5 years. Gronk born on May 14th and Sayers May 30th. Is it the day the player gets the call or their inauguration?

  73. “A part” is what you meant. Being “apart” of championship teams connotes the opposite meaning of what you intended.

    But whatever. We can’t all be good at everything. Gronk made a lot more money being elite at football than I did being decent at grammar. Congrats on a great career, bud.

  74. I have a feeling we haven’t seen the end of Gronk. I think he could be back playing in the NFL after a hiatus of at least half a season. Maybe he pulls a Jason Witten. We’ll see. Thanks for leaving it out there every down Gronk!

  75. Great player, fun to watch, and went out in style with a good performance in the playoffs and a SB ring. Nice to see him make his decision and not leave his team hanging. Best of luck in retirement!

  76. Next up: discussion of where he stands in the pantheon of tight ends. After that: where he stands among the NFL elite (i.e., fellow Hall of Famers.)

  77. Eagles fan. Hate Patriots but love Gronk! I’ll never forget the way you nearly took over the second half of LII.

  78. You will be missed Gronk.. But dont forget Pats Nation he didn’t play in the super bowl vs Atlanta.. We will be fine.

  79. How can you not like Gronk and this is coming from Fins’ fan!
    He’s a fun guy and enjoys playing the game and having fun afterwards. Oh yeah, and he is smart enough to put away his contract money and just live off of his endorsements.

    I wish him the best.

  80. Very well done Gronk – you saved your money, stayed out of trouble, had fun, won championships, became an all-pro, and retired ON TOP before serious injuries derailed you. Next stop – Canton.

  81. So much fun to watch, seems like such a decent dude off the field too. I’ll never forget that pictorial he did with those kittens, those pics still make me laugh. Congrats on your career and good luck in life after football.

  82. Gronk is the most dominant TE to ever play. That means he is the best.

    BTW, The NFL was PROVEN to have no evidence at all of Tom Brady cheating. (first appeal)
    The NFL was also PROVEN to have the power to suspend players on fake news. (second appeal)

    Make sure you get the facts straight about that. There was not and never will be any proof.

  83. Truly the heart of a champion!
    So dominant from start to finish.
    Congratulations on a remarkable carreer!
    29 yes old and leaving on top, baby.
    Well done

  84. Great player one of the bestever.The RAVENS WAS THE ONLY TEAM TO PUT FEAR IN GRONKS CAREER BUT OTHER THAN THEM HE dominated EVERY ONE ELSE

  85. Great player, big hole to fill for the Pats. They always find a way to fill it though. Class act all the way. Hated watching him beat up on Miami but hell of a player.
    Going out on top while you can still walk and try to enjoy life after football was a smart move for him. And he did it the right way, gave the Patriots time in the draft to replace him. Team player his entire career and he will be missed.

  86. Hat the Pats, but loved watching this dude play. In my opinion, he has just as much claim to the biggest reason the Pats have heen this successful as Brady or Belichek. He certainly made it much easier for Brady. Sure fire HOFer.

  87. Another product of the system he was in, throw Tony G, Antonio Gates, Jason Witten, Shannon Sharpe, or a slew of others into that system they are equally or even more successful.

    And they don’t whiff the tackle in Miami or dive on defenseless players with that weapon the NFL let him wear.

    Good call Gronk. You haven’t been the same since Earl Thomas sent your spleen into the next dimension in 2016 anyway.

    ———-

    Your Seahawks haven’t been the same since Brady torched the LOB for two 4th quarter TDs and ended their one-year-dynasty

  89. Brady didn’t torch the LOB in that game. By the 4th, they were all either injured or out of the game. As was Avril, their top pass rusher.

  90. Eagles fan. Hate Patriots but love Gronk! I’ll never forget the way you nearly took over the second half of LII.
    ________________________________________________________________________________________________

    Watching him rumble down the field pushing off Eagles on that last sec Hail Mary was epic!

  91. At this point his options amount to 1) Go out with the trophy; or 2) go out on a stretcher. We’ll miss him, but I think he made the right call.

  92. he would still be playing if he didnt drink himself out of the league.. His injuries never healed right cause he wouldnt train right and eat right. Witten>Gronk

  93. There’s a MNF Former TE-announcer spot open, hhhmmm second career? It would be an improvement….

    Staying on the field is part of the game. Gronk was hurt in the AFC Championship in 2011 and wasn’t able to do anything in the Super Bowl. The Patriots lost.

    Brandon Cooks went out early in the Eagles Super Bowl. The Patriots lost.

    Is that why they lost? Partly, but it’s irrelevant. It’s part of the game.

    he would still be playing if he didnt drink himself out of the league.. His injuries never healed right cause he wouldnt train right and eat right. Witten>Gronk

    —————–

    Huh? He dominated for 9 years. Witten is great, but at his best he was never Gronk. Gronk is an all time game changing level of Superstar. Witten has him on health and longevity, but that doesn’t diminish Gronk’s greatness.

    Brady didn’t torch the LOB in that game. By the 4th, they were all either injured or out of the game. As was Avril, their top pass rusher.

    As I remember Sherman was playing……so was Kam…. Brady torched them.

  97. As I said – they were either injured or out of the game.

    Both Cam and Sherman were playing hurt.

  98. gronkoswki isn’t retiring, it’s all b.s. propaganda to steer the spotlight away from the kraft massage parlor & trafficking legal issues.

  99. What an absolute joy to watch. He was like watching one of the “Transformers” giant robots slamming through a field of mere men. I used to laugh so hard watching him bludgeon his way through defenders. Plus, he was an awesome blocker and had fabulous catching hands. The guy was without a doubt one of the very best tight-ends ever.
