Patriots coach Bill Belichick probably doesn’t hear from former Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski very often. If Belichick is ever going to hear from Gronkowski, it’s now.

Belichick was born 69 years ago today.

Over the weekend, we touched on the question of how long Belichick will keep going. At one point, he said he won’t coach into his 70s. Now on the brink of 70, he feels differently. He surely will continue beyond his next birthday, April 16, 2022.
