According to Rob Gronkowski, he is the party.
Wherever Gronk goes, a good time follows.
However, this time, Gronk may be following the good time.
The 32-year-old tight end will become a free agent during the upcoming window and has yet to make a decision on his future. There is a chance that he could choose to retire from the sport, like he did in 2019. He could also wait and see what Tom Brady does before making his next move.
Should Gronkowski choose to keep playing and does his own thing, it would be the first time that he would be playing without Brady during his entire 10-year career. And if he does, he reportedly has interest in playing for the Titans. According to Chad Withrow, the interest is mutual and Tennessee will be a legitimate option for Gronkowski.
I’m hearing there is serious mutual interest between the #Titans and Rob Gronkowski. If he decides to play in 2022, Nashville will be an option.

As things currently stand, the Titans do not have a tight end. All three players at the position from a year ago — Anthony Firkser, Geoff Swaim and MyCole Pruitt — will become free agents when the new league year begins.
It is expected that Tennessee will go draft a tight end in April and the class is very deep at the position. But it also sounds like they are after a veteran.
Should the two sides reach an agreement, having Gronkowski as the primary option with a rookie behind him would be a very good move. It would also allow Gronkowski, who has dealt with injuries throughout his career and is getting older, to have a young buck with fresh legs to pick up a good chunk of the workload.
And, of course, Nashville is an incredibly fun place to live. The fiesta would be epic.
