Rob Gronkowski: Retirement becomes official
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots have officially placed Gronkowski on the team's reserve/retired list,NESN.com's Zack Cox reports.

Gronkowski announced Sunday via Instagram that he intended to retire from the NFL as a player, and that was made official Tuesday. While replacing the star pass-catcher will be no easy task for the club, Gronkowski's departure frees up roughly $9 million in salary cap space for the Patriots, who will no doubt be looking at the draft as a path toward rebuilding their tight end corps. So soon after Gronkowski's announcement, it seems a tad silly to immediately speculate about a potential comeback, but it's worth noting that his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, suggested that it wouldn't shock him if Gronkowski contemplates a return to the field at some point down the road.

Rob Gronkowski: Might consider return eventually
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Agent Drew Rosenhaus said he "wouldn't be shocked" if Gronkowski came out of retirement "to play a few games" at some point, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The 29-year-old tight end announced his retirement Sunday on Instagram without any hint or mention of a possible return to football in the future. Given his lengthy medical record along with the plethora of business/media opportunities available, it's easy enough to understand the appeal of retirement for a future Hall of Famer with three Super Bowl rings. That being said, Gronkowski might eventually consider a return to the Patriots if he finds that retirement isn't as enjoyable as playing football. Meanwhile, the team needs to add some help at tight end, where the depth chart currently holds Matt LaCosse, Jacob Hollister (hamstring), Stephen Anderson and Ryan Izzo -- a group with 71 combined NFL receptions.

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Announces retirement from NFL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski announced Sunday that he will retire from the NFL.

Gronkowski has not been shy about hinting at his retirement recently, and following yet another Super Bowl win, the all-time great tight end will officially call it a career. Gronkowski will finish his NFL career with 521 receptions for 7,861 yards and 79 touchdowns, and he leaves the Patriots with a massive hole at tight end moving forward. Chances are New England is strong in its pursuit for a tight end this offseason, starting with the 2019 NFL Draft.

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Still mulling future
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski's agent Drew Rosenhaus relays that the tight end has yet to decide on his playing future, Kevin Duffy of the Boston Herald reports.

On the plus side, Rosenhaus indicated that his client, who played through the Super Bowl with a thigh issue, is feeling healthy at this stage. Though Gronkowski's future with the team remains uncertain, we doubt that the Patriots are inclined to sign a big-name tight end in free agency. It's possible that Martellus Bennett could be lured out of retirement to provide depth at the position, but with a slew of picks available, the upcoming NFL draft is where New England figures to identify Gronkowski's eventual replacement.

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Expected to make 2019 decision soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski's agent Drew Rosenhaus expects the tight end to make a decision on retirement within the next couple weeks, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Gronkowski presumably hopes to avoid a repeat of last offseason when he waited until late April to confirm his intention of playing in 2018. There have been a few small hints that he's leaning toward playing at least one more season, including his presence at the Patriots' facility in Foxborough to receive treatment for a thigh injury he suffered during the Super Bowl. It sounds like he will announce his decision some time before the start of the new league year March 13.
