Gronkowski Will Return for the 2018 Season

Florida defensive tackle Taven Bryan

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski says he is returning for his ninth National Football League season.

According to ESPN News, Gronkowski and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, met with Patriots head coach, #Bill Belichick, telling him that Gronk will play for the Patriots this season.

After Super Bowl LII, Gronkowski raised quite a few eyebrows by admitting that he was contemplating retirement.

Rob Gronkowski is just days removed from one of the strangest press conferences in the history of Gillette Stadium. This story will be updated with the latest. Per his very own Instagram post, Gronkowski confirms that he'll be back with the Patriots in 2018.

Pats fans can breath easy knowing Gronk will be back. After all, Tom Brady is going to wear down eventually right?

After Gronk's freaky appearance Saturday at Gillette Stadium to promote Monster Energy Supercross, this likely cleared the air and mended a few fences if there was a need with Belichick.

Gronkowski had fueled the speculation he could walk away from the sport after telling reporters at the Super Bowl he meant to "look at my future for sure".

Gronkowski finished with 69 receptions for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns in 14 games for the Patriots last season.

Speaking on The Ringer's GM Street podcast, Mike Lombardi, a former Patriots executive and close friend of Bill Belichick, said he believes Gronkowski's actions have been all about money. "Looking forward to another championship run", Gronkowski said.
