Rob Gronkowski created headlines throughout the NFL in September when he appeared to vehemently shake his head in response to a question asking if transgender women should be allowed to compete against biological women in sports.

Gronkowski didn’t provide an explanation for his stance because he says there isn’t a need for one, according to a new interview with Fox News Digital.

“There’s really no thoughts to really even share. It’s the obvious,” Gronkowski said. “There are men’s sports for men, there’s women’s sports for women. It should just stay like that. It’s just as simple as that, man. There’s really no argument. There should really be no conversation about it.

“How it’s been is how it should be. Men play men’s sports, women play women’s sports. It’s as simple as that. It’s really unfair if a man went into a women’s sport and played it. It just doesn’t really make much sense to me.”

As Fox News Digital noted, Gronk was a five-time Pro Bowler and four-time first-team All-Pro. He had 802 receiving yards in the dozen games he played with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in his final NFL season.

The NFL world was quick to react to the news:
