Rob Gronkowski Returning To Patriots Next Season

Is Rob Gronkowski returning to the Patriots next season?

During a recent interview, Gronkowski refused to commit to retirement.

After calling it quits in 2019, the future Hall of Fame tight end was asked this week if he would consider a return.

Gronkowski opted to leave the door open.

“I knew that’s what I wanted to do,” Gronkowski said.

“I knew that that’s where I was headed, and no regrets at all, man. I’m having a good year.

“I felt like that was the time. I had a couple — a month or so after the season and just felt like that was the time. It feels good to know that it was a good decision.”

Despite being content with his initial decision to retire, Gronkowski remains open to a comeback.

“I don’t know. I mean, I’m a young guy, 30 years old. I still love to work out, stay in shape,” Gronkowski said. “I will never say a complete no because I love playing sports, I love competing.

“It’s still what I do to this day. No matter what it is, if I’m out playing basketball, and I’ll answer this the same as I always answer it.

“If I ever come back and I feel I have that passion, that strong passion for a continued time, not just one day or one hour, like, ‘Oh, man. I need to play football again.’

“I’m talking like a continued passion for about a good week or a good month or so. Then I would think about truly returning to football.”

A big part of Gronkowski’s decision will likely be dependent on New England’s quarterback situation heading into 2020.

If Tom Brady returns or the Patriots get a comparable veteran, the likelihood of a Gronkowski comeback will likely be higher.
