New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski isn't retiring to race motorbikes or raise racehorses at least not yet. 

 

Gronk and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, met with New England coach Bill Belichick on Tuesday, informing him that the All-Pro will play for the Pats in 2018. 

 

"It was very positive, and Rob is committed," Rosenhaus told ESPN.

I met with coach today and informed him I will be back for the 2018 season with the Pats. I have been working out, staying in shape and feel great. Looking forward to another championship run.

The decision covers one potential hole at a critical position, especially within the Patriots offense and quarterback Tom Brady's general efficiency.
