Gronkowski was drafted by the New England Patriots in 2010, and quickly became a star player, and a fan favorite, on the team.

"Gronk" won three Super Bowl titles with the Patriots before announcing his retirement from the NFL at just 29 years old.

About a year after announcing his retirement, Gronkowski joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and his longtime quarterback, former Patriots QB Tom Brady.

The duo would win another Super Bowl championship together with the Buccaneers, marking Gronkowski's fourth title in his career.

Gronkowski has been spotted numerous times in Connecticut, as his longtime girlfriend, Camille Kostek, is a native of Killingworth.
