Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski says if he had to make a decision today he would retire from football.
According to TMZ, Gronkowski, who is yet to make a decision on whether or not to play for the Buccaneers in the 2022 NFL season, has said he would probably retire if he was asked to make a decision today.
“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. I would be like, ‘No, I’m not playing,’” Gronkowski said.
The footballer added that he’s just too beat up right now following his 11th season in the NFL, to make a decision on his future.
“I just want to heal completely, see where my thoughts are from there. Just let things settle down — got to just heal a little bit. Fix all the bumps and bruises,” he said.
Elsewhere, Gronkowski was asked by TMZ if he thought the Bucs’ messy breakup with Antonio Brown helped play a role in the teams early playoff exit, to which he replied:
“There’s so many experienced pros in our locker room to let that affect us negatively. It’s not like we have a young locker room or anything like that.”
