There’s no doubt that he will be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility.
After all, his accomplishments on and off the field are hard to forget.
Yes, he is a party animal, but he is not offensive when having fun.
He also dabbled into professional wrestling during his first retirement and looked like a natural in the business.
However, it was in football that he became a household name because he was one of the best to do it.
He won four Super Bowl titles and gained four First-Team All-Pro selections.
He also owns significant records like most touchdowns by a tight end in a single season and most postseason touchdowns at his position in league history.
Since he gave his all while playing the game, he earned the big bucks while collecting achievements.
For that, he had to thank his agent, Drew Rosenhaus.
Thank you for everything! https://t.co/5NGbdZbW6m

Rosenhaus tweeted, “@RobGronkowski it’s been an honor & privilege to be your Agent these past 11+ years. You’re the best to ever do it. As great a player as you are, you’re an even better person. I’ll never forget our incredible journey together. Thank you for all the joy you’ve given us.”
NFL Contracts Signed By Gronkowski
He and Rosenhaus agreed to a four-year, $4.4 million rookie contract in 2010 which included $2.5 million in total guaranteed money.
However, he quickly proved that he was worth way more than that by scoring 31 total touchdowns in his first two seasons, including the playoffs.
His excellence prompted the New England Patriots to give him a six-year, $54 million deal by his third year.
That contract included $12.9 million in guaranteed money and was still live even when he retired and was eventually traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
His last contract in the NFL was a one-year, $8 million deal.
Through Rosenhaus’ assistance, Gronkowski made $70 million in salaries.
