Rob Gronkowski seems to be enjoying his retirement and he’s starting out spending some quality time on the basketball court.

Gronkowski was playing in the Big 3 for a charity tournament, and he looked good rocking the Monster Energy jersey and driving to the rim. He showed some pretty fluid movement as he ran through a defender for a lay-up.

It’s not like Gronkowski doesn’t have experience on the basketball court. He played basketball in high school but dropped out when he started playing football in college.

The clip went viral with over 12,000 views. Basketball fans loved seeing what Gronkowski was capable of in this short clip.

Rob Gronkowski has retired for the second time following the 2021 NFL season. But unlike his first retirement after the 2018 season, this one seemed much more permanent.

Injuries were a constant problem for him last season, and although it wasn’t the first time he suffered from injuries throughout the season, it will be increasingly difficult for him to recover at his age.

In every interview Gronkowski has given since then, he’s claimed he’s ready to hang up the cleats and gloves for good.

But if Gronkowski can consistently make plays like this while playing basketball, he may have another potential second career path open to him.
