Jamal Adams hopes Rob Gronkowski comes back

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said in a recent Instagram post that he hopes tight end Rob Gronkowski returns to add to his career touchdown catch total and Brady has some company in an unlikely place when it comes to wanting to see Gronk play again.

Jets safety Jamal Adams was often tasked with covering Gronkowski when the two AFC East teams met over the last two seasons and he was asked about the tight end’s retirement on Thursday night. Adams said he believes Gronkowski will play football again and declared himself hopeful that they’ll have future meetings on the field.

“I was sad,” Adams said, via the New York Post. “I was upset because going against him is what I look forward to. I like going against the best, and obviously, he was the best. I hope he comes back. I know he will. I don’t believe it yet.”

Gronkowski had his mind on other pursuits last weekend and has given no indication that he’s planning to get back on the field, although that hasn’t had any negative effect on wishful thinking about a return.

  1. Gronk is done. He walked away on top and relatively in good physical health. The man has done enough. Leave him alone until he gets in the HOF.

  2. These players need to leave him alone. He retired. Stop being selfish. Mentally and physically, the game had an impact on him and it was time for him to hang them up. Respect his decision and quit trying to drag him back in.

  3. The clock being right twice a day is akin to the Jets getting Adams. They hit a bullseye with their blindfold on.

    Love his play, attitude and leadership.

    Wouldn’t making declarations for somebody else future (that you don’t even know) a textbook example of selfishness?

    Glasskowski is finished.

    Yep, finished on the 2 yard line in triple coverage to secure his 3rd Lombardi.

  6. That’s the Patriot way for ya. When you get hurt, they just ship you off. It’s not about what you’ve done for them in the past, it’s what you can do at the moment.

    Well first off, Gronk retired of his own volition, the Pats didn’t ship him off. As a super pats fan, i’m surprised that’s news to you. On the other hand, yea the Pats treat it as a business. Why pay someone for past performance? No wonder they are the greatest football dynasty of all time

  8. Careful what you wish for buddy. Jets can guarantee two losses to the Patriots every year. With or without Gronk!

  9. Gronks retirement really helped the Pats with cap space this year so all is not lost….. & if he, for some unforeseen reason does come back, I hope it’s sometime in the last 4 weeks of the regular season so he is well rested & has a few weeks to get back into the swing of things…. after all, he’s been with the Pats his whole career so it should be relatively easy for him……
    & if he doesn’t come back then I wish him the best in his retirement!!!
    Personally, I’m not counting on him coming back any more than I’m counting on Gordon not messing up again IF he even gets re instated.

  10. “Don’t hold your breath glasskowski is finished”

    Watch much football? Gronks injuries were huge hits because he seeks contact, never runs out of bounds, always fighting for extra yardage. This sometimes puts him in vulnerable positions for injury. One of the toughest players to ever play the game.
