If Rob Gronkowski is contemplating retirement again, he’s spending some time in Foxborough while doing it.
ESPN’s Mike Reiss reported on Saturday that Gronkowski has been to Gillette Stadium “multiple times” since Super Bowl LIII, which the Patriots won 13-3 over the Rams. Reiss makes it clear that the exact reasons for Gronkowski’s presence there are unknown.
It’s possible that Gronkowski is receiving treatment on his quad that he injured during the Super Bowl. The tight end quipped “I can barely walk right now” during his postgame press conference in Atlanta.
Gronkowski also visited Boston Children’s Hospital with members of his family last Wednesday, donating $80,000 and entertaining patients in attendance.
Reiss views Gronkowski’s regular presence at Gillette as “a reflection of his being in a good place with how the season ended, both team-wise and personally”.
The tight end often dodged questions about his possible retirement during the week leading up to the Super Bowl, at times turning it into a light-hearted game with reporters.

Gronkowski may ultimately decide to walk away from the NFL, but clearly, he’s not particularly eager to walk away from Foxborough.
