    Given the shape of the Pats roster, I would think Belichick is hoping Gronk retires. They badly need the cap space and Gronk is not worth his salary at this point (even less likely to be worth it next year)

    Currently he’s dominating in the run game as a blocker.

    If he's considering retirement because his body is broken, pro wrestling takes as much physical toll on your body.

    I'll take 'headlines that don't surprise me at all' for $200. Watching him play out this year, it makes total sense that he's up in the air about putting his body through another year. He's got his long-term health to think about.

    Yeah, when you've had 3 back surgeries pro wrestling probably isn't in the cards for you.

    Basically, if you're insane enough to accept that kind of risk, you might as well just keep playing football.

    Rapoport has gotten so many stories wrong this year, he is in danger of being called fake news.

    Ran into a friend who is in the know at the game today and he said Gronk was considering it but apparently he has one more year in him!

    Imagine Gronk with a week of rest + knowing it's his final game ever in a potential last SB?

    I think he has one more great game in him

    He has two.

    Amazing he's not really part of the passing offense at all

    That one play today where he dragged guys a few yards really brought back memories when he used to do that on a weekly basis.

    Gronk, even in his compromised current form, is still as good as a Jason Witten or Heath Miller in their late years. If he sticks around a year or two, we will provide quality TE play, even if he is no longer a superstar.

    I will be happy for him if he hangs it up. Gronk will go down as my 3rd favorite Patriot all time, behind only Brady and Bruschi.
