Go ahead and call Rob Gronkowski’s debut on Fox’s NFL studio program a soft launch. He’d probably find that worth a guffaw.

And we could all use a laugh after Fox’s hammy debacle of a pregame show Thursday night, none of which was Gronk’s fault.

If your expectations were reasonable, he was actually pretty good in his first appearance since Fox announced Tuesday that the former — and perhaps future — Patriots tight end had signed on to be part of their NFL studio programming this season.

Gronkowski was unpolished, of course, and meandered some. But his effortless charisma and energetic good nature came through, and while he bounced around almost out of camera frame at times, he was not as wide-eyed or nervous-seeming as expected here. He got off a good — if probably scripted — line at fellow co-host Terry Bradshaw when he said, “You’re a legend to my father.”

Gronk joins FOX Sports as NFL analyst

  Gronk joins FOX Sports as NFL analyst Five weeks into the season, Rob Gronkowski is coming back to the NFL, but not in the same capacity he was once known for. The retired tight end has been hired as a regular analyst for FOX Sports' NFL programming. He'll debut on the Thursday Night Football pregame show ahead of the matchup between the New England Patriots and the New York Giants. "I'm extremely excited to be joining FOX Sports. Their deep talent roster is unmatched, which was important for me as I embark on this new chapter in my life because I'll be able to learn from the best in the business," Gronkowski said in a press release.

Gronkowski , who retired as a player in March after an electrifying career that was often interrupted by injuries, had not During a promotional event announcing his role doing that in August, the usually

Gronkowski also confirmed that his foray into broadcasting does not necessarily mean the end of his playing career.

“Does that mean football’s out now, you’re never going back?’’ asked Bradshaw late in the broadcast. “Because I know you didn’t sign that closure contract [retirement papers].”

Said Gronkowski, “I’ve answered this question many times before.”

“Not from me,” said Bradshaw.

“I would have to be feeling it, you know, feeling it big time to come back,’’ said Gronkowski. “It’s always going to be open in my mind. I love the game of football, you know, I love playing the game, I love being around the game, I even love watching the game of football now . . . the appreciation of watching it, seeing the hits, seeing the glory of it, you understand the game so much more, the fans of the game so much more.”

Sherman plans to apologize to Mayfield over handshake flap

  Sherman plans to apologize to Mayfield over handshake flap BEREA, Ohio — Richard Sherman is backpedaling after blitzing Baker Mayfield. The outspoken San Francisco 49ers cornerback said Wednesday that he plans to apologize to Mayfield after accusing the Cleveland Browns quarterback of not shaking his hand before Monday night's game. Sherman initially said he felt Mayfield disrespected him before the pregame coin toss by ignoring him. But after videos showed that Mayfield did shake hands with Sherman, the defensive star changed his tune."It's definitely my bad," Sherman said Wednesday during an appearance on The Pat McAfee Show. "I never want anybody to have to deal with some stuff that they didn't do.

Bradshaw, who knows a thing or two about meandering around an answer, cut him off.

“So tell me that,’’ he said.

“So, I’ll always keep it open,’’ said Gronkowski, bouncing around some more. “I’ll always keep it open, I’ll always keep it open, I’ll always keep the door open.”

Asked if he had to take pay cut to join Fox, Gronkowski got off a good line: “I’ll tell you this. To get a deal done here was a lot easier than getting a deal done with the Patriots.”

Other than Gronk, whom Fox eventually got around to introducing 34 minutes into the show, it’s almost as if the entire program were designed solely to annoy Patriots fans.

Rob Gronkowski has joined Fox Sports as an NFL analyst. The 30-year-old Gronkowski will make this debut Thursday, when he will join Terry Bradshaw, Michael Strahan and Tony Gonzalez, and NFL insider Peter Schrager, for the Thursday Night Football pregame show .

It was introduced by the Jonas Brothers, those NFL icons, telling us the 2-3 and injury-plagued Giants would have a shot against the 5-0 Patriots because of history — and you know the history to which they were referring.

All of two minutes passed in the broadcast before we saw Eli Manning’s winning touchdown pass to Plaxico Burress against the unbeaten Patriots in Super Bowl XLII in February 2008. The words “wicked,” “Beantown,” and “chowder” were all referenced in the first three segments. There was a hammy segment in which comedian Tracy Morgan showed up in a David Tyree jersey to reenact his helmet catch in Super Bowl XLII.

The only thing that would have agitated Patriots fans more deliberately in the first half-hour is if they’d brought Dan Fouts over from CBS for a visit.

Speculation that Gronkowski may end up being part of Fox’s WWE programming gained some credence when he followed up an Erin Andrews interview with Julian Edelman by praising his teammate, while also appearing to audition for a bigger role at Wrestlemania (he’s been a past participant as a guest) at the same time.

“He calls himself the squirrel,’’ said Gronkowski, staring directly into the camera. “You want to know why he calls himself a squirrel? Because he is a squirrel! He is a squirrel! He’s furry, he’s cute, he’s elusive, he’s feisty, and most importantly, when he gets a chance, he gets that nut. Just like he gets a first down, just like he gets the touchdown, just like he’ll give you a catch when you need it.’’

OK, it wasn’t exactly vintage Hulk Hogan, but Gronk pulled it off well enough on his first test run. And it sure beat another Bradshaw skit or cameo from a grown-up boy band.
