Report: Gronkowski ‘Pretty Certain' He'll Return to Pats Next Season

Rob Gronkowski is reportedly looking to return to the New England Patriots next season.

Sources tell ESPN the star tight end still hasn't made a decision about whether he'll retire, but seems "pretty certain" he'll return to Gillette's field if quarterback Tom Brady stays with the team.

Speculation about Gronkowski's future with the Patriots started after he refused to rule out retirement following a tough 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl.
