Back in March, former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski announced that he was retiring from football with a heartfelt Instagram post.
Just a few weeks ago, there was a report indicating that several people within the Patriots organization thought Gronk would consider coming out of retirement to play this season.

Former Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski made a public appearance recently and said he was done with football. What I can tell you is few people, including sources on the Patriots, believe that.
The belief is that once the season gets going, and Gronkowski starts missing football, he will rejoin the team. It’s not just a hunch, sources say; you can count on it
On Thursday, Gronk made an appearance at the premiere of Julian Edelman’s new documentary and it doesn’t appear that he’s going to be making an NFL comeback any time soon considering he looks like he’s lost a ton of weight.
