New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski and his 6-6, 265 pound frame may not be between jobs for much longer, as pro wrestling could be in Gronk's future.

According to Mojo Rawley, once Gronk finishes up healing from the decade of abuse that comes with being an NFL tight end, he's heading to the wrestling circuit.

"He just wrapped up a decade-long career breaking records," Rawley said. "Right now he's doing nothing. He’s going to lay low and stay off the television a little bit and heal up...but in the future, we have talked about it extensively. Wrestling is something that he both loves watching, and that little bit of taste he had in the ring with me at WrestleMania a couple years ago with me got him all fired up."

You couldn't construct a wrestler in a lab more perfect than Gronk. Given his size, physique and athleticism, the demands of the job will be nothing for him. On top of that, his infectious personality should make him an instant hit, no matter if he is written as a good guy or a heel.

WWE is in the market for another superstar, and that need could be filled in a big way by the most dominant tight end to ever play the game.
