Supposedly Gronk got advice from Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson & Sylvester Stallone that he could have a career acting in action films and Rob is debating retirement.

    Well, I hope he's better at acting than he is with stand up comedy :o

    There are rumors saying he might even try a career wrestling in the WWE.

    There can be all sorts of rumors about anything these days, but Gronkowski is not going anywhere. He will be with the Patriots for the coming season.

    With all the injuries he has had, he'd be smart to consider retirement.

    Its getting mentioned that this might be Gronk's way of asking for more money. NE reworked his contract not to long ago making it mostly incentive based because of his injury history.

    I don't believe it . I saw the interview and to me it looked like the reporter telling Gronk or asking him I should say was the first he heard about it and he wasn't sure what was going on.

    I definitely believe Gronk will have a lucrative future after the NFL but I don’t think he walks away now, the kid has fun playing outside of the injuries. I couldn’t imagine him not having friendly pressure from Brady and a few other teammates asking him to stay with them for another run at it. I could see the Pats doing another incentive laden contract based on Stats and not snaps played, basically them offering him something that won’t take such a huge toll on his body.

    After his concussions, can only hope he has his senses about him, down the road after football.

    I think its just contract leverage. He wants more do re mi . What is he the 5th highest paid tight end? He is better than the 4 guys that make more money

    Gronk should try to do whatever he can to make the money now.

    I mean how many football players have ever become successful actors? Off the cuff, only Jim Brown comes to mind who starred in a number of top movies. For example, Brown was great in the Dirty Dozen, a war movie classic.

    Yea sure, some others were in a few films, but I wouldn't call that having a successful acting career.

    OJs was pretty successful, until the incident.

    OJ came to mind, but other than the Naked Gun, I couldn't think of any other movies he was in. Of course he was on Monday Night Football for a few years and also did those Hertz commercials.

    I'm sure there's plenty of actors who'd be pretty happy with a main role in a three movie franchise and consider it a successful career. It actually shocked me when I looked up how many other TV series and movies he'd appeared in. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O._J._Simpson#Acting_career

    When Simpson wasn't butchering and robbing people, he was a personable guy. LOL

    So there's that , I mean he had that going for him anyway

    Some of the naked gun movies were funny. I seem to remember OJ strapped to a wheelchair bouncing down the steps on the upper deck of some ballpark and then flying over the railing, it was probably an OJ dummy though

    Too bad O.J. went off the deep end ..... he was a nice guy until then. ;)
    Maybe that incident in the wheelchair messed him up! :o
