When the NFL season begins next week, the New England Patriots will officially be without Rob Gronkowski. However, the three-time champion isn't ruling out a return to the gridiron.

Gronkowski is in New York to discuss his partnership with CBDMedic. In addition to discussing his new partnership, the former Patriot opened up about his football career.

The All-Pro tight end revealed that his joy for the game was taken away from him at times due to all the injuries he suffered.

While Gronkowski has made it clear that he retired in order to let his body recover, it appears he is leaving the door open for a potential return.

On Tuesday, Gronkowski said if he's feeling better he could return to football within the next year or two.

It's not exactly Gronkowski's way of saying he'll reunite with the Patriots, but it does show that his bond with football is still strong.

There is no doubt that Gronkowski is one of the best to play at his position. In his nine years with the Patriots, the former second-round pick totaled 521 receptions for 7,861 yards and 79 touchdowns.

It'll be interesting to see how New England handles Gronkowski's departure this season.

Do you think Rob Gronkowski will return to the NFL?
