Rob Gronkowski the football player is finished .Yeah Will Harris Jersey , but what about Gronk?Well, the party is about to go bazooka .Look out for Gronk gone wild, Gronk unhinged, Gronk unleashed. Without football strings attached, Gronkowski is suddenly a hot free agent year-round, his talents pitched to far more than 32 suitors, from Hollywood to endorsements to, well, whatever Gronk wants.He was fun-loving and fearless, a dominant tight end whose Super Bowls were won with New England and whose playful personality won over even the most casual fans. Gronkowski, who announced Sunday that he is retiring from the NFL after nine mostly dominant, title-filled seasons, set scores of records for the Patriots at his position and could light up the scoreboard like his smile can light up a room.The numbers only tell a speck of the story.Super Bowl wins were great.Boy, was it so much more fun just being Gronk.He stood tall at the Super Bowl and WrestleMania ; won big games and took on gamers; starred on the field and in film; and did it all with a goofy charm that belied a gritty tight end who seemingly always played through pain. The Patriots are going to miss Gronkowski as they try for yet another Super Bowl championship.But Gronk’s not going anywhere.So let’s take a look at what made Gronk so great , and what could be ahead:GRONK THE GOATGronkowski never would have had a sustained run as a popular pitchman , hosted kids shows or popped up in movies had he not been one of the greatest tight ends — yeah, probably the greatest — in NFL history.Gronkowski was hobbled by injuries last season and played just 13 games, and each ache raised constant questions about possible retirement. Gronkowski had plenty left in the Super Bowl and still had clutch catches in the tank on New England’s final drive. He had two catches on the Patriots’ go-ahead touchdown drive, the second catch set up Sony Michel’s 2-yard score in the win over the Rams.Tom Brady to Gronk, one more time for a title.“I like making big catches like that,” Gronkowski said.Gronkowski went out a champion — and he may be headed to Canton.He had 10 catches for 145 yards and three touchdowns in New England’s win at Denver in an AFC Divisional playoff win in 2011. Gronkowski might have been more impressive in the 2015 AFC championship game, when he converted two fourth-down attempts on the game’s final drive and had eight receptions for 144 yards and one touchdown, perhaps his best effort in a crushing defeat.Gronkowski is the only NFL tight end with more than 500 career receptions who averaged more than 15 yards per reception.He averaged nearly 69 yards per game and cracked juvenile jokes about setting a record 69 TDs for a tight end, thanking his mom when he reached the mark. He finished with 79 TDs receiving and one rushing.GRONK GONE WILDThe final image of Gronkowski in a Patriots uniform, greatness.The final image of Gronk out of uniform, hilarious.He celebrated the Super Bowl title on the parade route by stripping off his shirt , chugging beers, flipping his hat backward and acting like a frat boy on a float. A hurled beer from the crowd that ricocheted off his hulking chest was the final hit in his career.Gronk seemed to make as many TMZ clips as NFL Films highlights.Earlier this month , TMZ reported, “Gronk and his bikini model girlfriend have taken their hotness to sea … “cause the couple put on one hell of a twerk fest on a boat in Mexico.” Peter King prose, this was not.Who knows where Gronk will end up in retirement.Or do we?Gronkowski has a standing offer from WWE to move from the gridiron to the squared circle and become a professional wrestler like his childhood friend, Mojo Rawley. Gronkowski stormed over the barricade at WrestleMania in 2017 and bro-hugged Rawley after he won the Andre the Giant battle royal.Gronk vs. The Rock?Gronk vs. Brock?With WrestleMania just weeks away, the goofy Gronkowski could crash the show again and get mixed up in more shenanigans. Heck, “Gronk” doesn’t even need to make up a ring name.GRONK THE ENTERTAINERGronkowski might find his NFL bio condensed on a Hall of Fame plaque down the road but there’s almost no way it could fit in his offseason activities. Gronkowski was a hit with the average fan — from kids to grandparents — because of his endearing persona that made him about as A-list as any athlete. He had a personal “Talk with Gronk ” that poked fun at any idiot who wanted to eat a Tide Pod. He hosted “Crashletes” on Nickelodeon , was a fed a beer bong by Patriots teammate Julian Edelman in the “Entourage” movie, and played a heightened, animated version of Gronk on “Family Guy.”Late night TV host Conan O’Brien once invited Gronkowski and Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch to play a stirring game of “Mortal Kombat.”Gronkowski found victory lane just as fun as the end zone when he partied with Daytona 500 winner Kurt Busch and team owner Tony Stewart in 2017. He had Monster Energy drinks and Monster girls all around him, a winning combo in an offseason pit stop for Gronk.“I’m just having a blast,” he said. “I never really got to tailgate. I never really got to run-around (on Sundays). It’s cool to run around and meet people, enjoy the atmosphere, see what really goes down on this side of the stadium.”GRONK SAID IT“Yo soy fiesta.”Always the life of the party, Gronkowski quipped he was the party in an interview with ESPN Deportes after one of New England’s Super Bowl wins. He was a hit in any language Darnell Savage Jr. Jersey , especially compared to the milquetoast Brady. Among his best just-for-laughs takes, reading erotic Gronk fiction to Jimmy Kimmel such as, “I would have the pleasure to spike a football between butt cheeks,” he told a Boston talk radio station that he was a virgin and said Patriots fans were “going bazooka” at Gillette Stadium.But he went from whimsical to warm on the Insta post where he called it a career.“Cheers to all who have been part of the journey,” he wrote, “cheers to the past for the incredible memories, and a HUGE cheers to the uncertainty of what’s next.” CINCINNATI (AP) — Down to its last chance, the Bengals‘ defense dug in to stop the run. The Carolina Panthers ran the ball six straight plays, got a pair of first downs and finished them off.This time, there was no big play to save a defense that’s given up a lot of yards in three games.The Panthers ran for 230 yards — averaging 5.6 per carry — during a 31-21 victory Sunday that highlighted one of Cincinnati’s biggest concerns in the opening month. The defense is giving up a lot of yards to quarterbacks and runners.Andrew Luck and Joe Flacco each threw for more than 300 yards in the first two games, but the Bengals were able to stop the run and come up with late turnovers to hold on for wins. In Carolina, they simply got run over all game and were unable to save themselves at the end.“We felt like we were close,” defensive end Carlos Dunlap said. “I hope it looked that way too. They did a lot of little things that worked to their benefit.”Mainly, the NFL’s top running game took advantage of them. Christian McCaffrey ran for 184 yards — averaging 6.6 per carry — and Cam Newton ran for a pair of touchdowns. McCaffrey ran for 99 yards in the first half alone , when the Panthers got ahead 21-14.The decisive possession came after Andy Dalton was picked off at midfield with 3:33 left and the Panthers up by seven points. McCaffrey had a pair of runs for 13 yards against a defense that knew he’d get the ball. Newton then faked a handoff and went 12 yards around left end, leaving the Panthers well inside field-goal range.The Panthers ran three more plays to drain the clock, and they kicked the clinching field goal with 1:11 to go.“Sometimes it’s just one of those days,” defensive coordinator Teryl Austin said Monday. “We had a stinker.”The Bengals (2-1) held the Colts to 75 yards rushing in the opener and the Ravens to 66 yards rushing the following game, forcing them to throw. They didn’t expect a lot of runs from McCaffrey, who had carried only 18 times in the Panthers’ first two games but caught 20 passes.“They did some things we hadn’t seen on film, and it kind of shocked us a little bit,” cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick said Monday.”The Bengals face another unfamiliar offense next Sunday when they travel to Atlanta (1-2) for their third road game in the opening month.The Falcons lost to the Saints 43-37 in overtime on Sunday. Kirkpatrick plans to challenge his teammates in practice this week to get beyond the bad performance in Carolina and get ready for a wide-open offense.“Everybody’s down now,” Kirkpatrick said. “We expect more.”GREEN’S STATUSCoach Marvin Lewis provided no update on the status of A.J. Green, who suffered a groin injury early in the third quarter and didn’t return. The Bengals struggled to move the ball in the second half with him on the sideline, going 0 for 4 on third down. Green caught five passes for 58 yards.ONE MORELinebacker Vontaze Burfict serves the final week of his four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancers. He’s eligible to rejoin the team next week.
