    Generally CBD is out of the system after 2 weeks...unless your chugging it....then its 3.

    At this stage, who cares? He would have to magically gain weight and get into game shape to even be productive. Time to put Gronk to bed for this season.

    For a comparison...Kittle is about 250 lbs. Gronk is in that ballpark.

    From what I've read, there are CBDs that won't trigger the failed test. I have no idea if his CBD is one of those. I've also read he would have to formally sever ties with the company he's promoting in order to be reinstated.

    Regards,
    Chris

    I'm not expecting him to come back, although I'm realizing that he's probably being instructed by a couple dweeb "social media experts" to make posts like that Facebook one. In fact, I doubt Gronk even posted that himself.

    I just shrug at this stuff nowadays.

    My concern for him is alienating Pats fans by crying wolf a few too many times. Me personally? I don't care because I don't expect him back. But there are a lot of people getting their hopes up and if/when it turns out to be another CBD (or similar) promotion, it could get ugly.

    If he did somehow, against all odds, come back...that'd be cool.

    That's on them though?

    Gronk is retired selling products. If that really bothers some, it's their problem.

    The guy took tremendous punishment giving us some of the best moments we'll remember forever. He helped make us the greatest dynasty in the history of the sport. GOAT TE.

    I'd bet a lot of money those "fans" jump ship asap when its convenient.

    Gronk isn't doing anything shady, illegal or unethical. He's making a living after sports. Absolutely nothing wrong w that or how he's doing. People just like to *****.

    I ignore Gronk and deleted him from my Twitter. He just likes to troll the fans, don’t waste your time on anything Gronk related.

    Bottom line this charade will end this week since he has until the 23rd to announce a comeback.

    this ride won’t ever end because the entire offseason will be speculation that he’ll come back next year.

    He's just creating the maximum hype for whatever product he's going to be promoting next. Pretty lousy to ****tease a fanbase like that but hey ho....

    Yep, that's a good point. The people who get worked up have the problem they have to deal with, not Gronk. He'll be fine...probably more fine than if he came back.

    While he does risk some likeability with the publicity stunts, it's....well...hard for me to even finish this thought because none of it is a big deal.

    On to 2019...

    This is very likely another attempt to hype up his next project, his last opportunity to do so before time runs out on November 30. If that’s the case, he needs to just go away and stop doing these occasional teases. Post retirement Gronkowski is annoying. He clearly doesn’t understand that Gronk nation exists only if he is on the field. CBD/WWE/game show/work out bottle/“analyst” is tiresome.
