Rob Gronkowski reveals what his plans are for retirement
There has been a lot of talk about Rob Gronkowski potentially returning late in the 2019 season to help the Patriots make a run at another Super Bowl, but he may be elbow-deep in dog poop by then.
Tom E. Curran of NBC Sports Boston had a chance encounter with Gronkowski outside a charity event in Boston on Saturday, and he asked the former tight end about the possibility of his retirement lasting only until Thanksgiving. Gronk shook his head before revealing the big plans he has for himself now that his playing days are over.
“I’m into new opportunities,” Gronkowski said. “I was at CVS today with (my friend) Jim. Bagged all his stuff. I might do that, be a bagger. I might open a dog-walking business, be a dog-walker, I don’t know.”
Curran then informed Gronk that his friend just started a dog-walking business and might be looking for someone to clean up after the dogs.
“No doubt! Get a long stick with a scooper on the end and a handle. I just hit the trigger and it scoops it up. Then I reach back and drop it in a big bag on my back. Put all the poop in there and empty it every once in a while! So many ideas!” Gronkowski replied.
There have already been some gambling odds released for what Gronkowski’s next career move might be, and we can tell you pooper scooper and grocery bagger are not on the list. We’re guessing a guy who has supposedly saved every penny of his NFL salary and lived only off endorsements probably doesn’t need to get into anything like that, but you never know.
