It seems like Rob Gronkowski is still unsure about what to do about his future, even though his longtime teammate Tom Brady has hung up his cleats and is enjoying the good life with his wife Gisele Bundchen and their family. While there’s no doubt that things won’t be the same for Gronkowski now that Brady is gone, he did tell People, “I was asked that question two days after the [divisional playoffs] game and I said I wouldn’t play if the decision was today. And if the decision was again today, it would still be a no.”
Of course, that “no” can easily turn into a “yes” in the future, as Gronkowski’s retirement status has raised a lot of questions in recent weeks. But then again, Gronkowski does have a valid reason to stay put in Tampa Bay. “The main reason I came down to Tampa was because my mother lives two hours away. She can get to all eight of my home games,” he explained on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in May 2020. “Whenever I have days off, she’s two hours down the street and I get to see her.” Watch this space, as Gronkowski will have to make a decision sooner rather than later.
