Rob Gronkowski at a press conference announced he is becoming an advocate for CBD on August 27, 2019 in New York City.

Former New England Patriots tight end and Woodland Hills graduate Rob Gronkowski shared on Saturday night that he has a big announcement coming.

Gronkowski posted an Instagram story to his account telling fans to come back to the page on Tuesday for the news.

“What’s up Gronk Nation. I have a big announcement to make. I can’t wait to drop in on you this coming Tuesday,” he says in the video. “It’s going to be fun. It’s going to be wild. It’s going to be a good time. Come check out my Instagram page this Tuesday at 9 a.m. Let’s go!”

“Let’s go!” has become a catchphrase for quarterback Tom Brady.

Adding to speculation that he could be rejoining his former team or another NFL team, Gronkowski shared a 3-year-old video from Tom Brady titled “RECEIVERS… ASSEMBLE!!!” Sunday afternoon on Facebook. He added the caption, “Tom Brady, do you think this thing still works?!!”

Gronkowski has until Nov. 30 to declare for the rest of the NFL season, otherwise he can not play this season.

Past announcements from the All-Pro tight end included becoming a spokesperson for a CBD company and joining Fox Sports as an analyst.

On the Fox NFL pregame show, Gronkowski joked that maybe he was coming back to join the Dallas Cowboys.

Last week, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported that team owner Robert Kraft wanted Gronkowski to rejoin the team ahead of the playoffs.

Gronkowski retired from the NFL in March and went on to publicly say he wasn’t having fun anymore.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
