Rob Gronkowski ends retirement talk with Patriots optimism

Gronkowski says he's returning in 2018

With the training Gronkowski announced he has been doing, it does appear his focus this upcoming season is finishing the job the team couldn't finish in Super Bowl LII.

Rob Gronkowski and the Patriots have a future together. This story will be updated with the latest. Gronkowski made the announcement in a post on Instagram. Now, they await word from superstar tight end Rob Gronkowski regarding his potential retirement. "Looking forward to another championship run".

On multiple occasions Tom Brady has stated his intent to play in the National Football League until he's in his mid-40s.

Despite having matchups against the Steelers, the Packers, the Vikings and the Jaguars, the Pats' easy road to the playoffs is because of the AFC East.

The Patriots' 2010 second-round draft out of the University of Arizona, Gronkowski is a five-time Pro Bowl performer and a four-time All-Pro. To make matters more confusing, Gronk held a wacky press conference last Saturday during a Monster Energy Supercross event.

Gronkowski finished the 2017 season with 69 receptions, 1,084 yards, and 8 touchdowns in 14 games played. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Gronk's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, was also in the meeting with Belichick on Tuesday.

Most recently, Gronkowski chose to promote a dirt-bike rally instead of attending New England's voluntary workouts, further amping up speculation that he would rather do other things than play for Belichick.
