I live in Tampa and Bucs are my home team. But I love you guys too. Always enjoy watching you play your heart out. Would love to see you at home if you would permit? I'm a good looking dude and would not be an eye or mind sore. I have been following football since I could walk. You guys are awesome.

Would love to get my Rob Gronk's jersey signed but so not know where to send it of go to get it done can you help
thank you

Submitted by Cory on

I highly recommend that you only try to get your jersey signed when you have a chance to see him do it yourself. If you were to mail the jersey off to him, there is the risk of it being lost my the postal service, lost at the Patriots' campus, and lost on the journey back to you. If you decide to mail it, be mentally prepared for never seeing it again.

If you are willing to do that or you would just like to request he autograph a picture or something else, use the address near the top of this webpage for the best way to reach Gronk.

You can also use our FanMail Delivery service and pay us to send him an autograph request along with a self-addressed, stamped envelope for the autograph to get to you.

Good luck!

Hi, my name is Mercedes. I am currently stationed at Fort Wainwright with my lovely husband Greg, He's been up here for about 4 years while I've been here for 1. His birthday is coming up soon and I want to fly out to Boston with him to see your game on Nov 13. He is honestly one of your biggest fans. I am only a PFC so I really don't make that much and I can barely afford to do that. I would usually never even ask this but it would mean the world to him if we could have your tickets. Thank you so much for your time.

Hi Gronk,
I am 9 year old. I had to change the words for "you are
My sunshine" and write a
Song for my music class.
Here is my new song- it's about you.
You are
My favorite player
My only favorite player
You make me happy
When you catch a pass
You'll never know Gronk
How I cheer for you
Patriots, please don't take my favorite player away.

Mr. Gronkowski

Yesterday afternoon my cousin Zachary Sealey who is in 7th Grade was walking to his class and collapsed out of no where. The teachers and medics tried to bring him conscious. Later that afternoon he was declared dead. I'm writing to you because in a Florida today article about Zachary his coach mentioned that he choose the number 87 to pay homage to you as a Patriots fan. Our entire family are from Mass and you happened to be his favorite player. As a result of this Brevard country schools in Satellite Beach, FL are going to wear your number 87 as a tribute to Zachary. I just thought it would be nice for you to know the impact you have on our youth. Thank you for your time and for listening.

Hi Gronk, we are three students from South Dakota doing a report on kneeling for the national anthem. If we win, we have a chance to go to Washington D.C. Your input would make our research progress awesome. So, what is your perspective on kneeling for the national anthem? please email us.

I am a Bills fan from Western NY who lives in CA due to military/job. While a Bills fan, my kids and I always WERE Gronk fans because of your shows, work ethic, and our WNY background like you. What you did on Sunday ruined that and very disappointing to me and to us. What a cheap shot and really sheds a light on your character as a competitor and person. This probably means nothing to you but I really hope you can man up and give a real apology and not just blame the refs as kids look up to you. Go Bills.

Dear Gronk,

Many of us in Maine are loyal fans of yours and of the Patriots. Friends and I were devastated to hear that your house was broken into while you were in Minnesota preparing for and playing in the Super Bowl, and cannot imagine what it was like for you to return home to find the remnants of an intrusion there. I am certain you are unsettled and feel incredibly violated. We are so very sorry for your loss, and for the heartbreak for you of the Super Bowl you actually didn't lose (the Foles TD, the first TD with foot out of bounds, the "runner" TD-none legitimate). We hope you recover on both counts, and know that your fans are thinking of you and hoping for your safety and return to the field next year. With every good wish-Celeste

Hey Rob. I see you on the football field and commercials and on shark tank and other places. Several years ago me and my ex husband took you to a Pittsburgh Steelers football game. My ex did that for his clients. It was a cold day for the game. I think you had a girlfriend with you. You have gone a long way and you and your family are making it too. I just wanted to say hello. You are about the age of my own children. Good luck. I know you will continue to go far. Always remember where you CD ame from. All the best to you and your family.

He should be out of the game after throwing the full weight of his body on a helpless player.

I know you had a rough year. Why did you have a rough year? Cuz you are awesome!!! All the teams game plan against you. You still have it. It’s just more difficult. So don’t give up. Just keep finding ways to keep producing. That’s what separates the good players from the great players. And for the love of Pete, don’t listen to the dumb ass media!!! They are morons
Love you Gronkowski!!! And love what you bring to the table.

Rob, I will miss watching you play. You're the guy that totally sacrificed on the field to win!

I've got a deal lined up for you that will change the world, but no doubt you have all kinds of opportunities right in front of you.

Thank you, for being you. You are not aware of this, but you saved my son.

He is a big kid, only ten years old, and was locked in a depressive downward spiral. He did not believe in himself and was convinced as a big kid he could not fit in. HOWEVER, I told him about a big guy who dominated football, and convinced him to watch one of your games last season. He ended up looking forward to every game of yours and even started playing football last year. His personality and self-esteem has changed drastically for the positive.

Thank you. I know you and your teammates probably will not see this, but I am a father who is very thankful for a person like you in football who I can point out to my child as a role-model to emulate.

It was hard to write this, but I felt I should try to let you know somehow.

I'm a huge fan of your and when I was told you retired I was devastated. But then when I heard you were coming back I was jumping for joy I'm so glad! GO PATS! and good luck this season!
