Rumors have been rampant about ROB GRONKOWSKI returning to football and yesterday, ‘Gronk’ announced that he is, but not as a player!
The former all-pro tight end is joining Fox Sports as a football analyst, and he’ll make his debut tomorrow night during Fox’s pregame show for the New England Patriots’ game against the New York Giants. It’s not clear what Gronk’s overall role with Fox will be.
Tom Brady said, quote, “He’ll be good. He’s been pretty good at everything he’s done. It’s great to see a lot of our guys get a lot of great opportunities like that . . . [it will be] hard-hitting analysis.”
