Rob Gronkowski is a Super Bowl champion once again.
Gronkowski had six catches for 87 yards, including a 29-yard grab that set up the Patriots’ game-winning touchdown midway through the fourth quarter.
It is Gronk’s third time winning the Super Bowl since he was a second-round draft pick out of Arizona in 2010. In the win he broke the record for most career catches in the Super Bowl for a tight end.
Gronkowski caught 47 passes for 682 yards and three touchdowns in 13 regular-season games this season, a down year by his standards.
The 29-year-old is expected to consider retirement in the offseason, so Super Bowl 53 may have been the last time we’ll ever see him on a football field.
If so, it was a heck of a way to go out.
