Gronk Talks Un-retirement With Kay Adams

Could Gronk really un-retire from football again? Well, probably not. But if he did, we now know who he’d want to play for.

Yesterday, former Patriots and Bucs tight end Rob Gronkowski appeared on FanDuel TV’s Up & Adams sports talk show with host Kay Adams. During the segment, Adams asked Gronk if he were to ever return to the NFL, which coach would have the best chance of getting him out of retirement. His answer was plain and simple: Brian Daboll of the New York Football Giants.

Adams herself seemed surprised, even asking “not Sean McDermott?” Of course, Gronkowski grew up a Bills fan in Buffalo as a child, but says he “knows Brian Daboll wants him on his roster.”

Gronk believes playing alongside Darren Waller on the Giants would be a lethal tight end duo and would open up a ton of offense for the G-Men. “I always believe that having two tight ends is the best, “ Gronk said. “It makes the defense have the most difficult times. If you have two tight ends, I think that can make an offense unstoppable. And it’s rare, if you go back to my days when I had another tight end with me, I mean, it just makes the offense just prolific. It gives you so many more options in the run game, in the pass game, and play-action.”

Obviously, the “other tight end” that Gronk is referring to playing with is former Pats teammate turned murder Aaron Hernandez. People say Gronk isn’t very smart, but you gotta give him props for avoiding a tricky situation there.

Despite his reasoning for choosing the Giants, Gronk seems pretty adamant on remaining retired. “I love to pretend I could still play, just makes me feel good. I’m washed up,” Gronk said. “[Daboll] can’t get me out of retirement, but he would have the best chance.”

Gronk has retired twice in his NFL career, much like his best friend and partner-in-crime Tom Brady. However, it appears that Gronk truly will stay retired for the rest of eternity. I think I speak for everyone when I say, we’d love for Gronk to come back to the NFL. That said, if his return is gonna be to the Giants, he’s better off staying put.
