Rob Gronkowski will be joining the Fox NFL Sunday team. Many Patriots fans had been hoping he would return later in the season but it appears Gronk has his sites on television. Gronk hung up his cleats in the offseason after winning 3 Super Bowl rings with the Patriots. Gronk is likely going to be a future first ballot Hall of Famer after amassing 521 receptions for 7,861 yards receiving and 79 touchdowns over his nine year career.
“I’m extremely excited to be joining FOX Sports,” Gronkowski said in a statement. “For the past 25 years, they’ve offered viewers top-notch NFL programming from the field to the booth to the studio. Their deep talent roster is unmatched, which was important for me as I embark on this new chapter in my life because I’ll be able to learn from the best in the business.”
Gronk will debut on Thursday night prior to the Patriots game against the Giants.
Former #Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is coming to a TV near you: Sources tell me and @MikeGarafolo that Gronk has been hired by FOX to appear as a regular analyst for FOX NFL Sunday. A dynamic role for future Hall of Famer.
