Rob Gronkowski Retires from Pro Football

Posted By James Walsh on 06/21/22

Rob Gronkowski has retired once again from the NFL, making the announcement on Tuesday. Gronkowski posted to his Twitter account to announce that he is ending his career in the NFL, his second retirement after he hung up his helmet in 2019 and then returned in April of 2020.

Gronkowski has made several appearances for WWE and won the 24/7 Championship at Wrestlemania 36 in 2020. Gronkowski hosted the PPV and announced his un-retirement shortly after. He lost the championship to R-Truth in June of that year. Gronkowski wrote regarding his retirement:

“In college, I was asked to write about a dream job opportunity that I wanted to pursue and where the location would be. Every time I had to write about my future, no matter what, I picked being a professional football player. For that assignment though, we had to pick the location. So I wrote that I wanted to play in Tampa for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, for many reasons, the sunny weather being #1. I completely forgot about writing this report until 2 years ago when I had the opportunity to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And let me tell ya, the journey in Tampa over the last 2 years has blown away what I originally wrote about in college, big time. And for this, I want to thank the whole entire first class Buccaneers organization for an amazing ride, trusting me to come back to play and help build a championship team. I will now be going back into my retirement home, walking away from football again with my head held high knowing I gave it everything I had, good or bad, every time I stepped out on the field. The friendships and relationships I have made will last forever, and I appreciate every single one of my teammates and coaches for giving everything they had as well. From retirement, back to football and winning another championship and now back to chilling out, thank you to all. Buccaneers ????‍?? fans, the Krewe, without you guys, none of this is possible, all of ya brought it every game, thank you for all you do. Cheers to what’s next, maybe sailing the seas ????‍?? Arghhhhhh!!”
