It all started at 20 years old on stage at the NFL draft when my dream came true, and now here I am about to turn 30 in a few months with a decision I feel is the biggest of my life so far. I will be retiring from the game of football today. I am so grateful for the opportunity that Mr. Kraft and Coach Belichick gave to me when drafting my silliness in 2010. My life experiences over the last 9 years have been amazing both on and off the field. The people I have meet, the relationships I have built, the championships I have been apart of, I just want to thank the whole New England Patriots organization for every opportunity I have been giving and learning the great values of life that I can apply to mine. Thank you to all of Pats Nation around the world for the incredible support since I have been apart of this 1st class organization. Thank you for everyone accepting who I am and the dedication I have put into my work to be the best player I could be. But now its time to move forward and move forward with a big smile knowing that the New England Patriots Organization, Pats Nation, and all my fans will be truly a big part of my heart for rest of my life. It was truly an incredible honor to play for such a great established organization and able to come in to continue and contribute to keep building success. To all my current and past teammates, thank you for making each team every year special to be apart of. I will truly miss you guys. Cheers to all who have been part of this journey, cheers to the past for the incredible memories, and a HUGE cheers to the uncertain of whats next.

It's the right choice for his health. He has accomplished a lot and has more than enough money. Good luck to him

Every sports channel should throw money at Gronk to be a part of their pre-game, halftime, post game show

Even though he played for the Pats, it has been great watching him play. One of the very few Patriots players that was easy to root for in the past 10 years (the other being Vince Wilfork).

For the Pats, this is a great draft to find the “next Gronk” even if they will never find the “next Gronk“. There will never be another Rob Gronkowski.

Yeah, Gronk hasn't been a big factor recently anyway.

Not from a receiving standpoint sure,but he has been a good blocker still.

I'm not joking when I say that if he were to play guard for the Vikings he'd be their best guard on the team.
