Rob Gronkowski could be back on a gridiron as soon as 2028 … telling TMZ Sports he’d unretire from football if it meant he could play the flag version of it for Team USA in the Olympics.
The New England Patriots legend didn’t mince words when talking about the sport and its potential inclusion in the ’28 Games … saying point-blank Thursday, “Count me in already!”
“Hopefully there’s no tryouts and they just accept me,” said the former tight end, who walked away from the NFL for good in 2022. “But I’m in. I’m going for that if there is flag football in the Olympics in 2028. USA going all the way!”
Gronk would be 39 years old when the Olympics officially kick off in Los Angeles … but he says he’s been taking care of his body so well in retirement, he’s now back to 100 percent — and he seems to anticipate things staying that way if and when it comes time to put the flags on.
In fact, he says if the NFL created a league of its own prior to any sort of Olympic action, he’d be down to lace up his cleats ASAP for it.
