Robert Kraft holding out hope that Gronk will play again
As Rob Gronkowski made his debut as an NFL analyst for FOX, New England owner Robert Kraft says he is still holding out hope that the former Patriots tight end will return to the field.
“We all love Gronk, and I think the bottom line is he hasn’t put his retirement papers in,” Kraft said on NFL Network’s “NFL Gameday Kickoff” ahead of New England’s matchup with the New York Giants.
When pressed by his fellow FOX co-hosts about a possible return, Gronk repeated several times that, “So I’ll always keep it open. I’ll always keep it open. I’ll always keep it open. I’ll always keep the door open.”
