Rob Gronkowski opens up on NFL comeback and admits he held talks over ending retirement | NFL | Sport
NFL star Rob Gronkowski has admitted he nearly returned to the NFL before the start of the season, claiming he almost signed for the Buffalo Bills. Gronkwoski has been heavily linked with a return to the NFL just one year after retiring.
Gronkowski walked away from the NFL for the second time after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were eliminated from the postseason in the NFC Divisional Play-Off by the LA Rams.
The tight end joined his team-mate and close friend Tom Brady into retirement, and though Brady reversed his decision a month later, ‘Gronk’ chose to stay retired. Throughout the season, however, Gronkowski has been tipped to come back to the sport and return – most likely with the Buccaneers again to reunite with Brady for a third time.
But now, the man himself has admitted he almost returned before the start of the season – joining the Buffalo Bills and megastar quarterback Josh Allen.
