Rob Gronkowski is calling it a career.
The All-Pro tight end announced on his Instagram that he is walking away from the game.
Gronkowski, 29, is statistically one of the best tight ends to ever play the game given Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors on numerous occasions.
He was the 2011 NFL receiving touchdowns leader and won three Super Bowls with the team.
The Patriots now have only Ryan Izzo, Jacob Hollister, Stephen Anderson, and Matt LaCosse at tight end.
