Gronk Says He’d Retire Immediately If NFL Made Him Decide Right Now

Say it ain’t so Gronk.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski said he’d retire if the NFL forced him to make a final decision about the 2022 season right now.

Gronkowski told TMZ Sports in an interview released Wednesday he’ll instead take some time to rest and recover before making any announcements about his future.

“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,” he said. “I would be like, ‘No, I’m not playing.'”

Gronk added: “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.”

Gronkowski told Fox News the future of Brady, who’s also faced questions about potential retirement, won’t have a direct impact on his own decision.

Gronk without Brady wouldn’t be the same.
