The Patriots’ 2019 season will continue without Rob Gronkowski.
The former tight end, who announced his retirement in March after nine seasons, is ineligible to return this year as he was not taken off the retired/reserved list before Saturday’s deadline.
Last month, NFL Network reported that Patriots owner Robert Kraft had extended an invitation to Gronkowski to join the team ahead of the playoffs.
Should New England’s new year include another Super Bowl run, Gronkowski will be in Miami to cheer them on. The five-time Pro Bowler, who became a Fox NFL commentator in October, recently announced the first-ever Gronk Beach bash ahead of the big game.
“No one knows Super Bowl weekend like myself. I’ve experienced it in every aspect — as a player, as a spectator — I wanted to do my very own thing and Gronkify it,” Gronkowski previously told Page Six. “Why not spice up the Super Bowl?”
As for the Patriots, they’ll try to secure their 11th win of the season on Sunday night against the Texans.
