It looks like Rob Gronkowski is enjoying his time in retirement, and he's starting off by spending some quality time on the basketball court.
Gronkowski was playing in the Big 3 for a charity tournament,
And he looked good rocking the Monster Energy jersey and driving up to the rim.
He showed some very smooth moves as he powered through a defender for a layup.
It's not that Gronkowski doesn't have basketball court experience.
He played basketball in high school but dropped it when he started playing football in college.
The clip has been viewed over 12,000 times.
Basketball fans love to see what Gronkowski was able to do in that short clip.
Rob Gronkowski retires for the second time after the 2021 NFL season.
But unlike his first retirement after the 2018 season, it felt much more permanent.
Injury was a constant issue for him last season,
And while he was hardly battling injuries for the first time throughout the season, it's going to be tough
And it's hard for him to recover at his age.
Gronkowski has said in every interview since then that he's ready to hang up cleats and gloves for good.
But if Gronkowski could consistently make such basketball-playing plays,
Maybe he has another potential second career path open to him.
