Since the announcement of his retirement, rumors have swirled about a return to Rob Gronkowski in the Tampa jersey during the season. A rumor notably peddled by his agent Drew Rosenhaus on twitter. The tight-end, however, gave an interview to ESPN where he wanted to cut short a possible return this season.

“I’m done with football,” he confessed. I love this sport and I feel really blessed to have had all these opportunities… But no, I will not return. Regarding what Drew said, I know he loves all things NFL and wants to see his players play forever, but no, even if Brady calls me, I’m not coming back. »

“Saqon Barkley must learn that 4-yard runs are good”

Saquon Barkley (RB) will be expected again this season. Far from his 1,307 yards covered in his first year with the Giants, the running back ran for 593 yards in 2022. Affected by injuries, Barkley seems far from achieving the career that was promised to him during his draft in second position in 2018. This week ESPN heard from an NFL franchise offensive coordinator about Barkley. A testimonial not tender with the running back.

“He wants all his races to be exceptional, he’s a mover. But he’s going to have to learn that 4-yard runs are good in this league, instead of stopping, trying to dodge and eventually backing up 2 yards… Not to mention getting screwed in pass protection. »

Will he be able to silence his detractors who are even in the NFL franchise staff? Nothing is less sure.
