Gronk is back.
Well, sort of. The former Patriots tight end has returned to the NFL…but as an analyst.
Former #Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is coming to a TV near you: Sources tell me and @MikeGarafolo that Gronk has been hired by FOX to appear as a regular analyst for FOX NFL Sunday. A dynamic role for future Hall of Famer.

If you have Rapoport’s notifications on, this notification might’ve made you jump to your feet –– and then the back-half of the report was the equivalent of banging your head on the ceiling.
However, for Patriots fans looking for a silver lining to this as a potential return to the Patriots, remember that Jason Witten spent a season as an ESPN analyst before returning to the Cowboys.
