Patriots' Rob Gronkowski's retirement talk believed to be 'real'
MMQB's Albert Breer believes that the "rumblings" of New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski retiring are "real."
Following the Patriots' Super Bowl loss, Gronkowski was asked about whether he'll be back next year. He was noncommittal on the topic and said he would be looking at his future in the coming weeks. Breer says that Gronk has "been responsible with his finances." Rumors have it that he doesn't even touch the money he makes from football, living off his endorsement money alone. While it's likely he returns, it's worth noting that he still has two years and $17 million remaining on his eight-year deal.
In the last 2 seasons, Gronkowski's missed 10 games due to injury. He hasn't played a full 16-game season since doing so back in 2011-12.
