occasions about possibly returning to football. In a new interview with John Kryk of the  White Patrick Chung Jerseys , Gronk makes it clear that the door hasn’t closed.“[M]aybe, one day, if I’m missing the game and I feel I need to play, then I’ll go do it,” Gronkowski said. “But that’s what I love about it, is I have the option to be able to go back and play. Which is great. That’s what I love. Having the option to be able to go back and play.”Gronkowski said that Patriots owner Robert Kraft has made it clear that Gronkowski is welcome to return whenever he wants. So could he return this season?“Let’s put it this way Patrick Chung Jerseys 2019 ,” Gronkowski said. “I just really haven’t thought about it. Like I said, I love that I have the option, but I haven’t thought about going back at all. I’m really busy with what I have going on. I have a lot going on. I don’t really see myself at all. But it’s always just good, like I said, to have the option. If it’s this year, next year White Duron Harmon Jerseys , or even in four years, I feel like it’s just great to have [the option].”He seems to think that the option would disappear if he files retirement paperwork, which is inaccurate for two reasons. First, retired players no longer file retirement paperwork. Second, the filing of retirement paperwork was never an impediment to returning.For 2019, one very important impediment to returning exists: He must return by the team’s Week 13 game Duron Harmon Jerseys 2019 , or he can’t return at all. That means he has roughly four weeks to emerge from the reserve/retired list and rejoin the Patriots. After that, he can’t return at all until next year.
