A bad week for Rob Gronwkowski got even worse after he and the Patriots returned from Super Bowl LII. When Gronkowski entered his Foxborough, Massachusetts home on Monday following the Super Bowl, he discovered that his house had been broken into.
Gronk then called the Foxborough police department and the audio of his 911 call was released to the public. The normally excitable Gronkowski remained very calm as he told police that his home was burglarized.
We now have the 911 call that Gronk made, saying "my whole house got robbed" pic.twitter.com/sDHqQbWUqL— Blair Miller (@BlairMillerTV) February 6, 2018
“Hello, this isn’t an emergency. This is just uh, this is Rob Gronkowski calling and while I was gone, my whole house got robbed, uh, while on the Super Bowl trip. And I just got back.“
The police didn't say what items were stolen but a recording of the call between officers and dispatch possibly revealed some of the possessions. A dispatcher said, "multiple safes and possible guns" were stolen from Gronk's residence which is just a few miles from Gillette Stadium.
It's been a rough 2018 for Gronkowski who suffered a concussion in the AFC Championship Game vs. Jacksonville. He recovered in time to suit up for the Super Bowl where he had nine catches for 116 yards and two touchdowns. Gronk tied John Stallworth for the second-most postseason receiving touchdowns (12) in NFL history, trailing only Jerry Rice (22).
Minutes after losing Super Bowl LII, Gronk had to answer questions about his football future and said it's no sure thing he will return next season.
"I am definitely going to look at my future for sure," said Gronkowski. "I am going to sit down the next couple weeks and see where I am at."
He is just 28 years old, but Gronkowski's body has been thru hell and back with an emphasis on back. He's had three back surgeries, four forearm surgeries, a knee surgery and an ankle surgery! If he chooses to walk away, no one will fault him and his next stop (if not the WWE) would be the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
