Some are surely convinced that Gronk will return to football at some point this year. And the fact he's set to make an announcement on August 27 about his "next chapter" is pretty interesting (and convenient) timing.
So, what do you think he's going to announce? Is he going to Hollywood to star in "Hobbes & Shaw & Gronk"? Is the WWE offering him a full-time role? How about writing some memoirs?
Patriots fans certainly hope that he's coming back to football, but the chances of this are slim for the moment.
Gronkowski's last book, "It’s Good to be Gronk," came out in 2015. The former Pats tight end never came off as the kind of guy who would end up authoring multiple tomes, but hey, perhaps it's time to learn not to underestimate this man in his post-NFL life.
