Patriots TE Gronkowski Pondering Retirement?Matthew Emmons - USA TODAY Sports

In what’s already expected to be an interesting offseason, it appears that Rob Gronkowski’s future will be part of the discussion in the months ahead.

The veteran tight end met with the media after the game and looked sad and dejected, and was caught off guard when a reporter asked him about the possibility that he may be considering retirement.

The look on his face was surprise, wondering how the reporter caught wind of that notion.

“I don’t know how you heard that,” said Gronkowski. “But I’m definitely going to look at my future, for sure. I’m going to sit down in the next couple of weeks and see where I’m at.”

“I’m not ready for these type of questions right now.  I’m going to sit down, reflect on the season, talk to my teammates. We fought all year long.  All the receivers, running backs, linemen, we put all the work in together. I’m just going to reflect on the season.  I’m proud of the boys.  We’ll see what happens.“

“We just lost.  I just want to just sit back, relax the next couple weeks.  I really have nothing to say about that right now.

It’s been another long year for the tight end, who took another big shot two weeks ago against the Jaguars that landed him in the concussion protocol.  After arm, leg, back and now a head injury, if he decided that enough is enough, it would be hard to blame him.

Despite the loss, he finished 9-of-15 for 116 yards and two touchdowns in another terrific performance.  If he were to walk away, he can at least say he went out on a high note.

For now, we’ll have to wait and see what the future holds but it certainly sets up another potential obstacle for a team that already has plenty of work ahead of them this offseason.
