Willie McGinest Teases Rob Gronkowski Comeback With Video Of Him Playing At Patriots' Stadium

Willie McGinest Teases Rob Gronkowski Comeback With Video Of Him Playing At Patriots' Stadium

New England Patriots legend Willie McGinest teased fans that retired Rob Gronkowski could be returning to the NFL.

The three-time Super Bowl champion posted a video on Instagram that showed former tight end Gronk throwing and catching a ball at Gillette Stadium on Saturday night.

Gronkowski, 30, retired early after nine years of taking a physical battering and battling numerous injuries.

But McGinest, 47, posted the video with the caption: "Major comebacks happening in Foxboro stay tuned news will drop tomorrow night!"

The post did also come complete with a devil emoji, so maybe former linebacker McGinest was just being mischievous.

At his best, Gronkowski was the most dominant force in his position and helped New England win three Super Bowls in 2015, 2017 and 2019.

Patriots fans are already excited by the news that the team snapped up free agent wide receiver Antonio Brown on Saturday night.

Brown was released by the Oakland Raiders after a turbulent summer in California since his trade from the Pittsburgh Steelers.

And New England swooped to bring him in on a one-year deal that could be worth up to $15million.

The star receiver had problems with frostbite on his feet and finding a new helmet that met the NFL's safety regulations, both of which forced him to miss parts of training camp.

He was fined by the Oakland Raiders and clashed with general manager Mike Mayock, which led to further fines and the guaranteed $30million in his contract being voided.

Brown then took to social media and demanded to be released, and the Raiders granted his wish.

He signed with the Patriots hours later but will not be eligible to play their season opener on Sunday night against his former side Pittsburgh.
