It sounds like Rob Gronkowski has a bit of football still left in him.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end initially said that he was going to wait to make a decision on the 2021 season, but it sounds like his mind is made up. (RELATED: Rob Gronkowski Says He Wasn’t ‘In A Good Place’ At The End Of His Football Career)

There it is, folks. Gronk is planning on throwing on the pads and saddling up for another year of NFL action.
I’m not surprised one bit. He clearly has gas left in the tank, can make some serious money and play at a high level.
Gronk took a year off, recharged his batteries and it feels like he has a lot more energy now than when he initially hung up his cleats.
