Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski announces retirement

BOSTON (AP) The party's over for Rob Gronkowski. Then again, it might just be getting started.

The New England Patriots' fun-loving, touchdown-spiking tight end announced Sunday that he is retiring from the NFL after nine mostly dominant, Super Bowl-filled seasons.

The four-time All-Pro posted his decision on Instagram , saying that a few months shy of his 30th birthday "it's time to move forward and move forward with a big smile."
