Rob Gronkowski has gotten a TV gig, and he’s headed to Fox.

The three-time Super Bowl champion with the New England Patriots will appear on FOX NFL Sunday, according to Ian Rapoport on Tuesday. (RELATED: Rob Gronkowski Says He Wasn’t ‘In A Good Place’ At The End Of His Football Career)

This is a great move from both parties. It adds another big name to an already stacked Fox lineup, and it gives Gronk the opportunity to hone his TV skills.

It’s literally a win-win for everybody.

However, fans of the Patriots might not love this move. Gronk moving to TV means it’s probably the end of the speculation he’ll play again.

Why get back on the field if you can make good money on TV? If you can get richer without getting hit, then that’s what you should do.

No point in getting your head caved in if you don’t have to.

Gronk was a star on the field, and I have no doubt he’ll be a star on TV. The man just oozes charisma. He knows how to get the people going.

From an entertainment standpoint, he’s a generational talent just like he was while playing tight end.

Props to Gronk for getting himself a TV deal. I have a feeling he might be around on our screens for a very long time.
