Former Patriots tight end Gronkowski joins FOX Sports as NFL analyst

October 8 2019 7:37 PM

Former New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has joined FOX Sports as an NFL analyst, the broadcaster announced on Tuesday.

Gronkowski in March retired following nine seasons in the league, all spent with New England, despite only turning 30 last May.

A second-round selection of the Patriots in 2010, he finished his career with five Pro Bowl selections, four first-team All-Pro honours and three Super Bowl victories.

Gronkowski will make his first appearance in his new role on Thursday, when his former team the Patriots host the New York Giants in Week 6.

"I'm extremely excited to be joining FOX Sports," Gronkowski said. "For the past 25 years, they've offered viewers top-notch NFL programming from the field to the booth to the studio.

"Their deep talent roster is unmatched, which was important for me as I embark on this new chapter in my life because I'll be able to learn from the best in the business."

Gronkowski is New England's all-time leading touchdown scorer and is tied for the second-most receiving scores in postseason history.

He is also the NFL's postseason leader among tight ends in catches (81) and receiving yards (1,163).
