Earlier this week, former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski landed a new job. Sorry, wrestling fans, he’s not headed to the WWE.
Instead, the three-time Super Bowl champion is joining FOX Sports.
After the news was announced, reporters asked Patriots quarterback Tom Brady about Gronk’s new position.
Here’s what Brady said to reporters, via 247Sports.
“He’ll be good. He’s been pretty good at everything he’s done. Good for him. great opportunity. He’ll (give some) hard-hitting analysis. It’s great to see a lot of our guys get a lot of great opportunities like that.”
Brady and Gronkowski, who played together from 2010 to 2018, won three Super Bowl titles together. The two future Hall of Famers connected on 79 career touchdowns and are arguably the best quarterback-tight end duo in NFL history.
Gronk had a variety of options open to him when he retired from the NFL. Instead of going into Hollywood or the WWE stage, he’s headed to the broadcast booth.
As for when he’ll make his broadcast debut, that’s still up in the air.
Meanwhile, the Patriots will face off against the New York Giants on Thursday night. New York is without wide receiver Sterling Shepard, running back Saquon Barkley and tight end Evan Engram.
