There had been some speculation in recent months as to whether the star player, known as ‘Gronk,’ would retire soon and pursue other opportunities, like working as a Hollywood actor or perhaps a career in professional wrestling.

Gronkowski, who will be 29 in May, has suffered several injuries, including a severe back injury that ended his 2016 season early. The five-time Pro Bowler has scored 77 touchdowns during his 8-year NFL career.

A horse named after him was set to compete in this year’s Kentucky Derby, which will take place on May 5, but the horse pulled out recently due to an illness. Gronkowski tweeted about the news:

Gronkowski has had three back surgeries since joining the NFL. He said after Super Bowl LII that concussions would not be the main reason he would retire from the league.
