BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Bruins sit two wins shy of a championship with Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final tonight in St. Louis, but Patriots players will gather Thursday at owner Robert Kraft's house to receive their Super Bowl rings.
Expect Rob Gronkowski there, but the retired tight end confirmed he still has no plans to be on the field this season.
Gronkowski played the role of barber and also had his head shaved at yesterday's 10th annual "One Mission Buzz-Off for Kids" with cancer at Gillette Stadium. He's been part of the event for nine years and, naturally, was asked if he'd like to put reports of a potential comeback to rest.
"Whatever I say doesn't matter, it'll always be crazy out there, but you can put 'em to rest," he said.
Gronkowski said he's happy in retirement, but it was his agent Drew Rosenhaus who floated the idea in March that a comeback wouldn't be surprising. After all, he's only 30.
In the meantime, Gronkowski said he plans to be part of more charitable and community events around New England.
