Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has hinted about walking away from football at 28 and apparently World Wrestling Entertainment is listening.
According to Dave Meltzer's Wrestling Observer newsletter, WWE is willing to offer Gronk a "similar style deal" that it offered UFC star Ronda Rousey, who made her WWE debut late last month, is scheduled to be part of its "Elimination Chamber" event Feb. 25 and is being advertised as being part of their WrestleMania signature event April 8.
Gronk was part of Wrestlemania last year (see video below) and his friend, wrestler Mojo Rawley, hinted earlier this week that Gronkowski might be looking to give up football for the ring. Gronk has also reportedly been considering retiring to pursue a movie career.
Antonio Brown is fitting in very nicely on the field for the New England Patriots.
Brown and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady connected for their first touchdown together late in the second quarter of Sunday's Week 2 game against the Miami Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium.
Brady fired a pass towad the left side of the end zone, and the veteran wide receiver beat his defender to haul in the touchdown and give the Patriots a 13-0 lead entering halftime. Check out a replay of the 20-yard score in the video below:
It didn't take long for Brown to make an impact in his debut with the Patriots on Sunday.
Brady's first three targets all went to Brown, and the 31-year-old hauled in each of them for 36 yards. Brown also drew a defensive holding penalty in the red zone that helped set up Sony Michel's touchdown on that opening drive.
Brown finished the first half with four receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown on four targets.

The Patriots offensive line depth continues to get tested in Miami.
Starting left tackle Isaiah Wynn exited New England's game against the Dolphins Sunday with a foot injury, according to the team. He did not return to the game.
Marshall Newhouse, who was starting at right tackle for the injured Marcus Cannon, slid over to replace Wynn. Julien Davenport came in to play right tackle.
With Cannon out for Sunday and Andrews lost for the season, losing Wynn leaves just Joe Thuney and Shaq Mason as the only regular starters left on the line. It might not end up mattering against the Dolphins, but the Patriots will have trouble throughout the year if they continue to suffer injuries up front.
Wynn also missed the entire 2018 season with a torn Achilles, so any lower leg injury for him is worth monitoring.
