Rob Gronkowski Has Announced His Retirement From Football

By Alex Al-Kazzaz

The four-time Super Bowl Champion is retiring from the game of football. The former tight end for the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers has amassed a brilliant and illustrious career. There's absolutely no doubt that Gronkowski has established a strong legacy for the game of football. And without a doubt, he will be in the NFL Hall of Fame.

This isn't the first time Gronkowski retired from the game of football. Shortly after Super Bowl LIII, Gronkowski announced his retirement. He went on to explain that his decision was due to mental health concerns due to the brutal nature of the injuries he suffered.

During his time away from football, Gronkowski was with World Wrestling Entertainment where he was a one-time 24-7 champion and 2020 Slammy Award winner for Celebrity of the Year. In addition, he was the host for Wrestlemania 36.

His first season in Tampa was the first season in which he started 16 games since the 2011 season. He missed several games last season due to injury. Gronkowski's list of accomplishments is endless. Aside from being a four-time Super Bowl champion, he's a five-time Pro Bowler, and he's the 2014 NFL Comeback Player of the Year award recipient.

Gronkowski holds numerous NFL records such as the most 100-yard games by a tight end in NFL history(32), most seasons with 10+ touchdowns by a tight end(5), most catches by a tight end in Super Bowl history(23), and most receiving yards by a tight end in Super Bowl history(297). Overall, he holds nearly 20 NFL records in both regular and post-season COMBINED. That includes Patriots franchise records, as well. His status as a Hall of Famer is not potential at this point. It is justifiably SOLIDIFIED!
