-- A video of Rob Gronkowski made the rounds yesterday showing the tight end dancing with a small dog. 

And people on social media noticed he has lost quite a bit of muscle mass. 

The weight loss might suggest the retired tight end is not thinking about returning to football any time soon. 

-- Gronkowski’s friend Mojo Rawley also suggested recently the former Patriot will likely stay retired. 

Rawley, a WWE star, said he and Gronkowski have spoken about a potential future in wrestling. 

“We have talked about it extensively,” Rawley said. “Wrestling is something that he both loves watching, and that little bit of taste he had in the ring with me at WrestleMania a couple years ago with me got him all fired up. So, he’s ready to do something at some point.”

Gronkowski appeared at WrestleMania in 2017 to help Rawley beat Jinder Mahal and win the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal trophy.

But Rawley thinks Gronkowski is happy right now without the NFL or the WWE. 

“He just wrapped up a decade-long career breaking records. For every record he had he probably had as many injuries or surgeries putting his body on the line for the team and the fans,” Rawley said. “Right now he’s doing nothing. He’s going to lay low and stay off the television a little bit and heal up. He’ll reflect and make that next move and make that decision carefully.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "To have something like that going on in your hand and your wrist and to be able to diagnosis and be able to take positive steps forward to fixing it, I think that makes me a lot - it lets my mind ease a little bit knowing what’s going on. Knowing how we can fix it and taking steps in that direction to fix it." -- David Price, on the cyst in his wrist
