Regarded as one of the greatest tight ends of all time, Robert Gronkowski contributes to both FOX NFL SUNDAY and FOX NFL KICKOFF on Sundays during the NFL season.

Gronkowski had two stints in the NFL, beginning with the New England Patriots (2010-2018). New England drafted the tight end out of the University of Arizona with the 42nd pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. Gronkowski won three Super Bowls with the Patriots, and was named to five Pro Bowls, four First-team All-Pro’s, and won the NFL Comeback player of the Year in nine years with the team.

After a brief retirement in 2019, Gronkowski returned to the NFL and spent two seasons in Tampa Bay (2020-2021) with his former quarterback, Tom Brady. Gronkowski won his fourth Super Bowl in 2021 with the Buccaneers. Before the end of his NFL tenure, he was named on the NFL 2010s All-Decade Team and the NFL 100th Anniversary All-Time Team. He officially retired in 2022 after an 11-year career, ending with 92 touchdowns, 621 receptions, and over 9,200 yards.

Gronkowski attended Woodland Hills High in Pittsburgh for his senior year of high school. He was named a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette first-team all-conference and an all-state player before committing to Arizona in 2007. Gronk compiled 16 touchdowns and 1,197 yards in two years with the Wildcats (2007-2008). He was a first-team All-Pac-10 member in 2008.

Off the field, Gronkowski works with the community through the Gronk Nation Youth Foundation. He focuses on inspiring youth to reach their maximum potential through sports, education, community, and fitness. Gronkowski and his brothers provide appearances at events with selected nonprofit organizations that strongly serve and benefit youth with a focus on health, education, and overall fitness. Gronkowski has also regularly helped the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Patriots Foundation. He received the Ron Burton award Community Service Award from the New England Patriots in 2016 for his charitable works and leadership.

In 2015, Gronkowski co-wrote a memoir: It’s Good to be Gronk, which became a New York Times Bestseller. Gronk and his brothers also operate Gronk Fitness, a business that sells Gronk-branded gym equipment. Gronkowski owns homes in Foxborough, Massachusetts, and Tampa, Florida.
