Rob Gronkowski Retires: "It all started at 20 years old on stage at the NFL draft when my dream came true, and now here I am about to turn 30 in a few months with a decision I feel is the biggest of my life so far. I will be retiring from the game of football today." -- Rob Gronkowski on Instagram Sunday afternoon.

Big loss for the Pats. He didn't have a great postseason, but the Chiefs game was close enough that his absence could've been enough to send New England home.

He probably won't do what Jason Witten did: make a national annoyance out of himself for a year and then jump back into the uniform.

Would love to hear Belichick's thoughts about Gronk retiring on Snapface and Instachat.

87 was courteous to hold off on making his announcement while BB was on holiday.

@12upSports tweeted some fake career stats for Gronk, all containing his favorite number, 69. Improbably enough, @MatthewBerryTMR tweeted this real stat: In his career Gronk has scored exactly .69 touchdowns per game. Somehow this is fitting.
