Now that Rob Gronkowski has retired from the NFL, he will have a lot more free time on his hands.
While the former Patriots tight end likely will take that time to explore other endeavors and endorsements, Bud Light has taken the opportunity to offer Gronkowski a position on their social media team.

Sounds like a pretty sweet deal, right?
Gronkowski is no stranger to tossing back a few adult beverages in celebration — during his numerous Super Bowl parade appearances he has been seen chugging beer, liquor and even wine.

Gronkowski, 29, has toyed with the idea of retirement before, but his announcement Sunday on Instagram came as a bit of a surprise.
He spent all nine of his NFL seasons with New England, notching 521 catches, 7,861 yards and 79 touchdowns in 115 career regular-season games. He’s also earned five Pro Bowl selections, four first-team All-Pro honors and the award for the 2014 NFL Comeback Player of the Year in that time.
