New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski announced his retirement Sunday on Instagram, but his agent isn\u2019t convinced we\u2019ve seen the last of him.

REUTERS\/Lucy Nicholson\/File PhotoAgent Drew Rosenhaus, speaking on ESPN\u2019s Get Up! on Monday, suggested the league\u2019s most dominant tight end might come back for a few games if he was asked by Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. \u201cIf the team was struggling or they needed him at some point next year, and let\u2019s just say hypothetically Tom Brady gave him a call and said \u2018Rob, I need you.\u2019 I wouldn\u2019t be shocked if he came back to play a few games,\u201d Rosenhaus said. Gronkowski, who turns 30 in May, has battled injuries to his back and knee and missed 29 games in his career. He openly pondered retirement last offseason, but he returned for another campaign. Before Super Bowl LIII this year, he said he would make a decision about his future a few weeks after the big game. He also discussed the physical wear and tear he endures throughout the season, as a 6-foot-6, 268-pounder who takes big hits as a receiver, regularly blocks defensive linemen and often plays through injury. Brady, who has thrown twice as many touchdowns to Gronkowski (78) as any other player (Randy Moss, 39) in his career, commented on the tight end\u2019s Instagram post, writing, \u201cLove u man!! The!! Couldn\u2019t be a better person or teammate!!!!\u201d Over the last several years, Gronkowski has steadily added experience in other fields, making a WWE appearance in 2017 and taking roles in various movies. Many reports have said the tight end has his eyes on an acting career in Hollywood, while some expect him to go into wrestling. A three-time Super Bowl champion, four-time First Team All-Pro and five-time Pro Bowl selection, Gronkowski caught 521 passes for 7,861 yards and 79 touchdowns in 115 games from 2010-18. Despite playing just nine seasons, he ranks ninth in NFL history among tight ends in receiving yards and tied for third in receiving TDs. No player at any position caught more touchdowns than Gronkowski during his NFL tenure, and only LeSean McCoy equaled his 80 total touchdowns. Gronkowski added 81 catches for 1,163 yards and 12 touchdowns in 16 postseason contests, all top marks among tight ends all-time. Only Jerry Rice (22) has caught more scores in playoff history. \u2014Field Level MediaOur Standards:The Thomson Reuters Trust Principles.
