Rumors of Rob Gronkowski potentially joining Eagles draw divided opinion from NFL fans

Dallas Cowboys v Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Rob Gronkowski

Rob Gronkowski has had one of the best careers of any tight end to ever play in the NFL. The future Hall of Famer retired prior to the start of the 2022 season. However, there are rumors that the services of the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers star could be needed.

The Philadelphia Eagles lost their starting tight end, Dallas Goedert, to a shoulder injury in Week 10 and placed him on injured reserve. As such, a move for Gronkowski would make sense for Eagles general manager Howie Roseman.

Many NFL fans are split on the possibility of the team pursuing the recently retired player:

@nflrums LOL Eagles team loaded & still not confident? 😂😂
@nflrums I don’t see him playing for any other QB ever, other than Brady.
god please no…
Sorry, but @RobGronkowski said several times wants to play with Joey B if he comes back.…
He would never…

Other fans would like to see the four-time All-Pro play for the Eagles:

Called this a week ago. Gronk = 🦅? #FlyEaglesFly…
I would buy this jersey so fast…
Make it happen Howie.…
Come on @RobGronkowski 🦅🦅🦅…
Gronk and Goedert would be pretty crazy…

At an event in Boston back in June, the 2014 NFL Comeback Player of the Year was asked if he'd come out of retirement.

Gronkowski said:

"Love the game. Definitely blessed with all the opportunities the game of football has given me, and relationships -- obviously here in New England Patriots for nine seasons and down in Tampa for two. But done with football and stepping my feet into the business world, business ventures, and just seeing what's out there and where I can find my place."

Now, the question is, could the Eagles do the impossible and get the former Arizona Wildcats star to play this season?

What are the odds that Rob Gronkowski plays in the 2022-23 season?

Rob Gronkowski is no stranger to coming out of retirement. He initially called it a career after the 2018-19 season with the New England Patriots, but played the following season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, reuniting with his former Patriots teammate, quarterback Tom Brady.


The Philadelphia Eagles would love to see the four-time Super Bowl-winning tight end come out of retirement once more. Let's see if Rob Gronkowski will give it a go one last time for one of the best teams in the NFL in the Eagles.
