Although unconfirmed, Rob Gronkowski has already started applying to work as a dancer at various Chelsea nightclubs.

The Boston Globe’s Ben Volin reports Patriots star Rob Gronkowski will likely start the season on the reserve/PUP list.

Undergoing back surgery on June 18 to alleviate pain caused by degenerative disc disease, the 24-year-old Gronkowski is set to miss at least the first six games of 2013.

Shelved for the entire 2009 campaign at Arizona following a back operation, the 6-foot-6, 265 pound Neanderthal will ideally return by midseason.

However, also battling a mangled forearm, it’s evident that Gronkowski’s body is rapidly deteriorating.

A two-time All-Pro who established records for the most touchdowns (17) and yards (1,327) by a tight end in 2011, Gronkowski is a dynamic playmaker and one of the greatest talents to ever lineup at the position.

Although the immortal Tom Brady could succeed throwing a pigskin to an alligator, losing the former Wildcat will badly hinder New England’s offensive attack.

Signing a six-year contract extension worth $54 million in June 2012, Gronkowski seems destined to retire prematurely.

Regrettably, expect injuries to force Rob Gronkowski out of the sport within the next five years.
