All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski announced his retirement (again) Tuesday afternoon, hanging up his cleats after two seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

But according to his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, yet another comeback might not be out of the question.

Rosenhaus told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that he wouldn’t be surprised if Tom Brady called Gronk at some point this season and convinced him to return.

That certainly worked for Brady the first time, when he coaxed Gronk out of his brief retirement after nine seasons with the New England Patriots. Gronkowski joined Brady in Tampa Bay, and the pair promptly helped lead the Bucs to a Super Bowl victory in their first season.

Rosenhaus made it clear that he’s just sharing his personal opinion, and after all the injuries Gronkowski has endured throughout his 11 seasons in the NFL, it’s certainly understandable if this is truly the end of his legendary career. He’s already a first-ballot Hall of Famer, and perhaps the greatest tight end in NFL history.

That said, even just a glimmer of hope might be enough to keep Bucs fans out of the dumps after Gronkowski’s announcement.
