Could Rob Gronkowski be preparing to come out of retirement for a second time to return to the NFL?
Probably not, however, the one thing we do know is that Gronk would only play for one coach: Brian Daboll of the New York Giants.
Gronk appeared on Up and Adams with Kay Adams Wednesday morning and gave some very interesting comments about the Giants head coach, saying, “Brian Daboll wants me on his roster. I know it. He can’t get me out of retirement, but he would have the best chance to get me out of retirement.”

When Adams suggested he would get to play with new Giants tight end Darren Waller, Gronk praised the former Raider, noting, “I always believed having two tight ends makes the defense have a difficult time. If you have two tight ends, that could make an offense unstoppable. It’s rare. If you go back to the days when I had another tight end with me, it just makes the offense prolific. It gives you so many options in the run game and the pass game”
After playing the first nine seasons of his career in New England, winning three Super Bowls and setting the single-season tight end touchdown record, Gronk retired in March 2019 at the age of 29, saying that the pain and injuries throughout his career wore him down mentally.
Following a short run in WWE, where he hosted WrestleMania 36 and won the 24/7 Championship, Gronk unretired and joined former teammate Tom Brady in Tampa, where he won one more Super Bowl before retiring a second time in 2022.
As he’s just 34 years old, the clip has naturally generated a lot of buzz and gotten NFL fans thinking about what Gronk on the Giants would look like.
