Agent: New “Opportunities” Could Lead Rob Gronkowski to Retire

Gronk's agent Drew Rosenhaus said his client has plenty of options besides football.

If Rob Gronkowski decides to walk off into the sunset following his third Super Bowl win as a New England Patriot, the star tight end will have “opportunities” away from the football field.

At least that’s what his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, seems to think.

During an appearance on the Peter King Podcast, Rosenhaus said the five-time Pro Bowler hasn’t made up his mind about retirement but, if he does choose to hang up his cleats, he’ll have options.

“He loves football. He loves playing with Brady and Belichick and his teammates. He loves to win championships,” Rosenhaus said. “But at the same time, the amount of pain and punishment that he’s had to endure, for somebody who can do something outside of football and be a huge success – whether it is broadcasting, or acting, or endorsements – Rob has so many opportunities. It is a tough decision.”

Gronkowski, only 29, has battled knee, back, and ankle injuries throughout his NFL career.

While Gronk has yet to announce a decision about retirement, it’s possible he will hedge his bets and simply “take a break for a while,” according to former New England linebacker Willie McGinest.

Earlier this week on NFL Network, McGinest said Gronkowski could start the year on the sideline and then possibly return “deep into the season.”
