I get it. Gronk has retired for the second time and made it public on social media. But shortly after the news broke, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus has this to say:
I'll buy that Gronk is done for the moment, but I absolutely do not think he's played his last snap for the Buccaneers.
I mean, why would he? He's still playing at a high level.
Plus, he's still having a ton of fun!
Additionally, Gronk himself said he'd have the Bucs sweat it out for a few months before deciding to return.
So while I do think Gronk will not start the season on the Buccaneers or in the NFL, I do strongly believe we'll see him when Gronk answers Tom Brady's call, just like his agent said.
