The New England Patriots’ tight end, Rob Gronkowski, announced his retirement from the NFL after nine years on March 24 via an Instagram post.

“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,” Gronk said on Instagram.

After nine seasons with the Patriots, he is ending his professional football career. The 29-year-old was rumored to be considering retirement ever since the end of the 2017 season after New England’s Super Bowl LII loss. Gronk leaves the game as one of the most dominant tight ends of all-time. He had over 1,000 receiving yards in a season, four times out of nine seasons, and caught 38 touchdowns in his first three seasons. He finishes his career with 521 receptions, 7,861 receiving yards and 79 touchdowns. Since his announcement, Gronk’s teammates have been sending him support through social media.

“What an honor and privilege to play with you these past nine years @gronk! You accomplished so much and our team was almost unbeatable when you were on the field! Your fun-loving, inspiring, and positive energy made an impact on everybody you came into contact with,” Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said on Instagram.

Coach Bill Belichick said it was his “pleasure and privilege” to coach Gronk in their nine years together, and credited him as a major reason the Patriots won championships.
