Rob Gronkowski leaves door open for return

The former Patriots tight end hasn’t slammed the door on the NFL quite yet.

Rob Gronkowski has been living life to the fullest since retiring from the NFL. His latest adventure was with the WWE where he captured the 24/7 crown. The list goes on and on after that, with advertisements and NBA dance choreography — but we all know his true ability is on the NFL field.

In a recent interview on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Gronkowski laughed at all the speculation he would return to football with Tom Brady in Tampa Bay, but he also said, “I’m feeling good right now. I’m happy where I’m at. You just never know, man. You just never know. You never know. I’m not totally done.”

Parsing every word Gronk utters probably isn’t going to get us too far, but until he begins vehemently denying a return, we are going to continue to hear speculation about a possible return. And, without a real job, Gronk probably wants to keep interest up, even if he has no intention of ever playing football again, which is quite likely.
