Today, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski walked away from the NFL. He made his announcement on Instagram, and this is a huge blow to the aging Patriots.
Gronkowski played college football at the University of Arizona. The Patriots drafted Gronkowski in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft with the 42nd pick, after missing his junior year due to back surgery.
Gronkowski has set several NFL records. He has the most seasons with 1,000+ receiving yards by a tight end with four. Gronkowski also has the most career postseason receiving yards by a tight end (1,163) and is the only tight end in NFL history to reach 1,000 or more yards. He has the most career postseason receiving touchdowns for his position with 12, as well as the most receptions (23) and receiving yards (297) by a tight end in Super Bowl history, and now he walks away from the game.
Gronk will go down as a first ballot Hall of Famer in my opinion. This is a huge blow to the Patriots aging offense.
