The news all Patriots fans have been anxiously waiting for came straight from the horse's mouth on Tuesday afternoon (no, not that horse!)
Gronk took to Instagram to announce that he'd met with the big boss, Bill Belichick, and will definitely back on the field next season.
Not that we ever doubted it, despite his dirt biking antics at the weekend!
"I met with coach today and informed him I will be back for the 2018 season with the Pats," Rob wrote. "I have been working out, staying in shape and feel great. Looking forward to another championship run."
Gronk's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, was also in the meeting, said: "It was very positive and Rob is committed," according to ESPN.
2018 will mark Rob's ninth season with the Patriots during which time he's already won two Super Bowl rings and earned five Pro Bowl spots.
