Rob Gronkowski will consider retirement again this offseason

Report Rob Gronkowski will consider retirement again this offseason

It's a year later, but it is pretty much the same conversation when it comes to Rob Gronkowski.

Reports following the 2017 season suggested Gronkowski considered retiring rather than be traded to the Detroit Lions, Rapoport notes in his piece.

According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, the tight end will once again contemplate retirement after the season and "some people close to him believe Gronkowski's decision will go the other way".

"The Patriots' long-time fixture is expected to weigh retirement once again, and he may be playing the final games of his likely Hall of Fame career", Rapoport reported. Rapoport adds that he dealt with ankle and back injuries during the season and stopped demanding double teams in coverage like he has for most of his career.

Over nine National Football League seasons, Gronkowski has 7,861 yards and 79 touchdowns. "Perhaps strongly considering retiring a year ago put him in a place where it was hard to get fired up for this season", Rapoport wrote.

"It's been more challenging", Gronkowski said this season. Rappoport says this information came from people close to the tight end.

Gronkowski's numbers and production are significantly down this season.

The 29-year-old had his worst statistical season since his rookie year in 2018, catching just three touchdowns for 682 yards in 13 games.

The Patriots play the Chargers at home on Sunday. If they win, they'll advance to the AFC Championship Game next week in Kansas City.
