FOXBORO, Mass. (WPRI) — Rob Gronkowski is back—but instead of a Patriots uniform, he’ll be donning a suit and tie. (Presumably.)

Fox Sports announced Tuesday that they’d hired the former All-Pro tight end as a football analyst.

Gronkowski hung up his cleats this past spring after spending his entire nine-year career in New England.

He’s set to make his network debut Thursday night as his former team takes on the New York Giants.
