Rob Gronkowski lands NFL analyst job with FOX
NFL fans are going to be seeing a lot more of Rob Gronkowski going forward this season, but that does not mean the star tight end is coming out of retirement — at least not yet.
Gronkowski has agreed to a deal with FOX to serve as a regular studio analyst for the “NFL on FOX.” The news was first reported by Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo of NFL Network and later confirmed by Gronkowski himself.

There has been talk of Gronkowski serving as a studio analyst since the moment he announced his decision to retire, and he should be great for ratings. He’s a huge personality in addition to being arguably the best tight end to ever play, so it goes without saying that people will want to hear what he has to say.
Gronk has not entirely ruled out making an NFL comeback, and a recent roster move the New England Patriots made will only add to the speculation. Whether he eventually plays football again or not, Gronkowski should be a perfect fit for FOX.
