Rob Gronkowski is heading to TV.
The former Patriots tight end has signed with Fox Sports to join the network’s NFL Sunday coverage as a regular analyst. Gronkowski will make his broadcasting debut for Thursday’s game between the Patriots and Giants.
“I’m extremely excited to be joining FOX Sports,” Gronkowski said in a statement. “For the past 25 years, they’ve offered viewers top-notch NFL programming from the field to the booth to the studio. Their deep talent roster is unmatched, which was important for me as I embark on this new chapter in my life because I’ll be able to learn from the best in the business.”
“He is one of the most popular players to ever play the game and also one of the best tight ends in NFL history,” FOX executive vice president Brad Zager said. “His passion for the game and larger-than-life personality make him a perfect fit for FOX Sports.”
