Following Tom Brady‘s retirement address, his long time teammate Rob Gronkowski has revealed that he might just be thinking about calling it quits once again.

Gronkowski and Brady have played together on the same team for 11 years, first on the New England Patriots and most recently on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers team. In 2019, Gronk briefly retired from the NFL but later came back in 2020 to play alongside Brady for the Bucs. As Brady is contemplating retirement, it seems as if Gronk might be as well. The tight end recently said that if he was forced to make the decision to day, he would walk away from the sport,

“If they’re like, ‘Rob, you’ve got to decide right now, right this second if you’re playing next year,’ I would say no right now. It’s two days after the season.

I would be like, ‘No, I’m not playing.’ … You’ve got to give it some time. You’ve got to rest. I would say to see how everything goes, how everything plays out.”

He clarified that he wants to “heal” his body and see where it takes him, “Just let things settle down — got to just heal a little bit. Fix all the bumps and bruises.” Gronk recently posted to Twitter, thanking his fans for the season and later posing the question of whether or not he should continue next year with, “Year 12???” While he has not yet made his decision, Gronk did say that his answer could differ in the coming weeks, “If I had an answer right now, it would be no. But in three weeks, it might be yes.”

Gronkowski enters the offseason as a free agent.

In other sports news, Jake Paul invested in the UFC and has revealed plans to make changes from within.
