Today, Rob Gronkowski retired from the NFL after 9 seasons with the New England Patriots. During those 9 seasons, he caught a total of 79 touchdowns and received for 7,861 yards. He also has 2 Super Bowl rings to show for his postseason success. He is, to me, the greatest tight end ever to hit the gridiron. I wish his career could have been a little longer. But, with Brady as his quarterback, he was very blessed. The duo is definitely the best quarterback-tight end duo ever. He was the #1 target for the greatest quarterback which means he had to be a great player.
