Rob Gronkowski Will Be an NFL Analyst
Gronk is coming to Fox Sports and bringing his big personality with him.
Just about a month ago Rob Gronkowski was holding a press conference to announce his next big thing after football. And now he already has another thing.
If you guessed that Gronk would be taking his talents to TV, turns out you were right.
Fox Sports has officially announced that Gronkowski is joining Michael Strahan, Terry Bradshaw, Tony Gonzalez, and Peter Schrager as a studio analyst starting with the Patriots Thursday Night Football game against the Giants.
It's not a one-off gig though. He will be part of the regular Sunday studio crew for the remainder of the season after that.
And he sounds very excited about his new job. Fox released a statement about Gronk's arrival attributing this quote to him,
For the past 25 years, they’ve offered viewers top-notch NFL programming from the field to the booth to the studio. Their deep talent roster is unmatched, which was important for me as I embark on this new chapter in my life.
This does definitely end any fan's thoughts of Gronk returning to the field this season. But it doesn't take him too far from the game.
Maybe a year of analyzing other players will give him the urge to get back out there and play himself next season.
Hey, it happened with Jason Witten right?
But whether it's one season or the next 10 seasons, it will definitely be entertaining to watch Gronk as an analyst. And I think he and Terry Bradshaw will be hilarious together.
