Tom Brady does lose his lieutenant. While the man with seven Super Bowl victories has finally decided not to end his career as an American football player at 44, Rob Gronkowski has decided to put the NFL behind him once and for all. Indeed, at the end of the 2018-2019 season, the one who is nicknamed the “Gronk” had announced his retirement while playing under the colors of the New England Patriots. However, when “TB12” announced his desire to continue his career in Florida under the colors of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the temptation proved too strong and Rob Gronkowski decided to put on the cleats again. A duo who then found their complicity with the result of a title acquired at home with the Bucs against the Kansas City Chiefs, led by Patrick Mahomes.

Gronkowski leaves “with his head held high”
An announcement that the native of Amherst made through social networks. “I will retire to my country home, away from football, with my head held high knowing that I have given everything, declared Rob Gronkowski. The friendships I have made through my career will last forever. I would like to thank the entire Buccaneers organization who trusted me for my return to competition in this team of champions. Thanks to them for allowing me to come out of retirement, regain the title and be able to rest again. Good luck for the future! “A second retirement which however leaves skeptical his agent Drew Rosenhaus who assures that he would not be surprised if “Tom Brady calls him during the season to resume service” and that he accepts this proposal. “It’s just my opinion but a return of Rob this season or next season would not surprise me,” he added.
