Rob Gronkowski participated in offseason throwing session with Tom Brady

Rob Gronkowski participated in an offseason throwing session with Tom Brady at UCLA’s campus.

Fantasy Impact

Gronk is currently retired, but this workout will spark rumors of a possible NFL return. This isn’t the first time an ex-teammate participated in a offseason throwing session with Brady. He has continued to insist he is officially done, and has lost around 20 pounds since retirement. Rumors of a possible NFL return will continue until he actually sits out the whole season.

Rob Gronkowski announces he's retiring

Rob Gronkowski announced on Instragram Sunday that he is retiring.

Fantasy Impact

This doesn't come as a huge surprise as Gronkowski has been considering retirement since last off-season. Despite hanging up his cleats before his 30th birthday, Gronk will still go down as the best tight-end of all time, or at least the most dominant. The 2010 second-round draft pick finishes his career with 521 catches, 7861 receiving yards, and 79 receiving touchdowns in 115 games. Had he stayed healthy this whole time there's seemingly no limit to the types of eye-popping numbers he could've put up. Gronk was also a part of multiple championship teams in the latest Patriots' dynasty.

Rob Gronkowski still hasn't made decision on retirement

Appearing on ESPN's NFL Live, super agent Drew Rosenhaus has stated that his client, Rob Gronkowski, still hasn't made a decision on whether or not he'll retire.

Fantasy Impact

The Patriots have to be preparing for life without Gronkowski, who was reportedly playing injured in the Super Bowl. At this point, it shouldn't shock anyone if he's done, as his body has deteriorated much faster than anticipated. Rosenhaus stated that Gronkowski won't even tell him which way he's leaning. If he does return for the 2019 season, he's no longer someone you should consider spending a high-round pick on in fantasy drafts. If you own Gronkowski in dynasty leagues, it may be best to sell right now for whatever you can get, even if it's a second-round rookie pick.

Rob Gronkowski could make decision in 'next couple of weeks'

Esteemed NFL agent Drew Rosenhaus appeared on ESPN NFL Live on Tuesday and said that he anticipates his client, Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski, to make his decision on his playing future in the "next couple of weeks."

Fantasy Impact

Right around the Super Bowl, reports loomed stating that Gronkowski was expected to make a decision on his playing future in "1-to-2 weeks." However, now that the window is just about to close, we have now seen reports stating that Gronkowski has been present at Patriots facility as well as today's remarks from Rosenhaus, suggesting that the future Hall of Fame tight end will need more time to come to a conclusion. “He’s thinking it through, he’s giving it a lot of thought... I imagine a decision will happen in the next couple of weeks," Rosenhaus said via NFL Live. The longer Gronkowski sits and ponders his future, the more time he has to reflect on this performance in the final two games of the postseason, heal from his nagging injuries and convince himself that he has at least one more year left in him. Regardless of Gronkowski's decision, I do expect the Patriots to be in the tight end market in April's Draft. In fact, with 12 picks, it wouldn't surprise me if they took multiple tight ends a la the 2010 draft -- Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez.

Rob Gronkowski a 'regular' at Patriots facilites this offseason

ESPN's Mike Reiss is reporting TE Rob Gronkowski has been a "regular" at Gillette stadium this offseason since the Super Bowl.

Fantasy Impact

While Gronkowski has been present at Patriots facilities this offseason, Reiss does not believe it holds any significance when it comes to projecting his future with the team. Reiss cited that Gronkowski could be at Gillette to receive "treatment on his thigh" as well as using his time at the facility "as a reflection of his being in a good place with how the season ended, both team-wise and personally." Gronkowski is expected to make a decision on his playing future sooner rather than later.
