Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski announced he is retiring on Tuesday. This will be Gronkowski’s second retirement.
The tight end’s status was uncertain all offseason, but now it appears he’s finally calling it a career.
“I want to thank the whole entire first class Buccaneers organization for an amazing ride, trusting me to come back to play and help build a championship team,” Gronkowski said in the Instagram post. “I will now be going back into my retirement home, walking away from football again with my head held high knowing I gave it everything I had, good or bad, every time I stepped out on the field.”
