Via Instagram Rob Gronkowski has announced he will be returning to the Patriots for his ninth season.
“I met with coach today and informed him I will be back for the 2018 season with the Pats,” Gronkowski wrote. “I have been working out, staying in shape and feel great. Looking forward to another championship run.” – Rob Gronkowski
The is excellent news for Patriots fans and I am fairly certain Bill Belichick was pleased as well. The best TE in the NFL is a mismatch nightmare on game-day giving Tom Brady superior options in the passing game as well as supplying the running game a plus blocker as well.
When you are an elite competitor losing any game is rough. Losing a Super Bowl can be downright brutal. Losing one that as a team you thought you should have won can be epic. The post SB hangover hit the Pats hard this time.
It took awhile, but the band is back together and yes, the Pats are now favorites to return to the Super Bowl. Again.
