Rob Gronkowski has hung up the cleats on his larger-than-life on-field persona and is taking on a new role in retirement: Mr. Recovery.
The former New England Patriots tight end has spent the five months since announcing his retirement focused on recovering from his injury-riddled NFL career.
He says CBD is the product that has helped him most, and now he’s asking the NFL and other professional sports leagues to update their stances on the substance.
“It’s just time,” he said. “It would have made a huge difference for me, I believe, during my playing career. I want the same opportunity for my friends and teammates out there.”
