Rob Gronkowski has finally decided what he’ll do after retiring from the NFL, and no, the All-Pro tight end isn’t joining the WWE. Instead, the three-time Super Bowl champion is joining FOX Sports.
Gronkowksi decided to retire from the New England Patriots this past offseason. He leaves the game behind as one of the best to ever play his position.
There was speculation that Gronkowksi would either become a professional wrestler or join the acting industry. It turns out the neither of those options are on the table for him right now.
According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, Rob Gronkowski has been hired by FOX to appear as a regular analyst for its Sunday coverage.

This latest development should put an end to any speculation about Gronkowski returning to New England this season.
It should be fun to watch Gronkowski in this role. After all, he’s shown everyone in the past that he’s quite the character.
Not only does Gronkowski have the personality to thrive as an analyst, he’s also a smart football mind.
At this time there is no date for when Gronkowski will make his FOX debut. Nonetheless, this is pretty exciting news for the former Patriot.
