Rob Gronkowski’s ‘big announcement’ leaves Patriots fans disappointed
Rob Gronkowski took to social media over the weekend to tease a “big announcement” that he was planning to make on Tuesday, and New England Patriots fans have once again been let down by their former tight end.
Gronkowski is planning to be in attendance at the Super Bowl in Miami, but not as a player. He is hosting a music festival called “Gronk Beach.”
“Future Hall of Famer and 3X Super Bowl champion Rob Gronkowski is no stranger to Big Game Weekend. He may not be playing in the game this year, but he is taking Miami by storm with his personal music festival – Gronk Beach,” a description on the event’s official website reads. “Constructed right on the sand of Miami Beach, GRONK’s eccentric personality will come to life combining his favorite artists, food, drinks, beach performers, and more!”
So, there goes that. Gronkowski has until Nov. 30 to decide whether or not he will return from the reserve/retired list, but this almost certainly means he has no plans to play again this season. We probably could have guessed that based on what Bill Belichick said this week about Gronk’s upcoming announcement.
This is the second time Gronk has teased a big announcement that made Patriots fans think he could be making a comeback, but he is simply using all the comeback buzz as a marketing tool. Fans in New England probably don’t appreciate it, but it’s a smart approach.
