Tom Brady is returning to the Buccaneers, but one of the key members of his offense, tight end Rob Gronkowski, is not.
The four-time All-Pro announced his second retirement in three years on Instagram. After thanking his teammates and coaches, Gronk said he looks forward to “chilling out.”
Gronkowski won four Super Bowls, including one with the Bucs in 2021.
“I will now be going back into my retirement home, walking away from football again with my head held high knowing I gave it everything I had, good or bad, every time I stepped out on the field,” he wrote.
