Drew Rosenhaus: “In my opinion [Gronk] isn’t done”

Tight end Rob Gronkowski announced his retirement from football on Tuesday, but someone close to Gronkowski does not believe that the decision is an irreversible one.

Agent Drew Rosenhaus has represented Gronkowski for a long time and he said shortly after Gronkowski’s announcement that he can envision the tight end making a different choice at some point in the very near future.

“In my opinion he isn’t done,” Rosenhaus told PFT via text. ” I would not be surprised to see him come back down the road.”

So how far down the road?

“It would not surprise me if Tom Brady calls him during the season to come back and Rob answers the call,” Rosenhaus told Adam Schefter of ESPN. “This is just my opinion but I wouldn’t be surprised if Rob comes back during the season or next season.”

Gronkowski came out of retirement once to join up with Brady in Tampa and doing so this time would likely mean that he’d avoid having to go to training camp before getting back into the lineup. That’s likely appealing to a veteran with as many scrapes as Gronkowski has picked up over the years, but that’s all speculation about what the future could hold.

For now, Gronkowski is retired and the Bucs will be looking elsewhere to fulfill their needs at tight end.

  1. That is how the Shady Brady sycophants work – bask in the retirement spotlight and then when they have gotten their accolades, they come back to milk their return greatness. I wouldn’t bet my life on this commercial clown staying retired. When Shady Brady calls for him to save his season, this clown will return.

  2. Gronk wants nothing to do with training camp. I think most of us have been aware of this pretty early on. What’s the best way to get out of training camp? Well, you can retire. It’s not as if Gronk is new to the offense or an out of shape slob. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if Gronk signs a one year contract right on the eve of week 1.

  3. This is starting to have a very Brett Favre feel to it, and not in a good way.

  4. Can he just be done so we don’t have to hear about the buffoon every day?

  5. If he’s smart, he’ll chill until some time closer to the playoffs and then work his way back in on a year-to-year basis. J.J. Watt should have subscribed to this gameplan 4 or 5 seasons ago.

  6. This “retirement” will last until around the last preseason game. If Brady wasn’t the QB, he would do exact same thing.

  7. Honestly, he’s been trying to retire since BEFORE he left New England! Brady compelled him to continue in Tampa and he did so under much pain and duress! Let the guy retire in peace!

    Totally agree. Look for him to also “unretire” around mid season.

    He was a free agent. He didn’t have to show up to training camp. He has until the 10th week of the regular season to sign. Why retire if you were going to come back week 1? He just could’ve waited to sign.

  10. This is becoming a ridiculous media pantomime in Tampa.
    Brady is the ultimate narcisist , and it must be catching.
    Getting even worse than Favre.

  11. all this is about is a leg up. Opens up one of the 90 to find a potential gem. Nothing else to see here. They ain’t dumb

  12. I will not believe he is truly retired until that proverbial “one day contract” is signed in New England, so that he can “retire as a Patriot.” Is there anything more played out than that scenario?

  13. I know I speak for the vast majority in saying we love all stories patriot, ex patriot, may be a patriot one day, or wish they were a patriot.

    After what BB pulled in the SB against the Eagles, don’t expect Gronk or Brady to sign 1-day contracts with the Patriots….

    The real question is how long will Kraft keep BB around when he can’t win a postseason game without Brady?

  15. This reminds me of that scene in Jerry Maguire when the agent, representing a broken-down, beat-up, way past-retirement hockey player, tries to BS the hockey player’s son about how indestructible he is. The kid rightfully flips him off.

  16. Why BB walked and almosg dealt him to Detroit before the 2018 season and why Brady almost didn’t get on the plane for preseason.

    BB had enough of the gameplaying by each childish “adult”.

  17. He could go back to Fox and move to LA so he doesn’t have to travel every week, go to training camp or get hit. And given the way the networks are paying these days, he’ll probably make more money. It’s kind of a no brainer.

  18. Gronk is America’s player. Sign week 4 and play week 8. Tampa will be 7-1.

  19. GRONK needs to drop his cell phone number and get a new one . Don’t give it out to his agent or Brady.

  20. Will unretire for a second time. Why else would Rosenhaus put this out there.
