The internet was set on fire after New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski retired Sunday.

The three-time Super Bowl champion called it quits after one hell of a successful run with the Pats. He put up huge numbers, stacked up plenty of cash, won himself some rings, and now, the journey is over. (RELATED: Patriots Beat The Rams In The Super Bowl)

That’s just part of life in the NFL. Plenty of people shared their thoughts on the legendary TE hanging up his cleats. Below are the best reactions.

What an incredible run for Gronkowski. He’s had the kind of career most athletes can only ever dream about. He showed up and showed out for several years and was entertaining the entire time.

There’s no question that he’s earned the right to relax and cut loose in retirement. I can’t wait to see what’s on the horizon for him.

I’m sure that it’s going to be incredibly entertaining.
