坦帕湾海盗 星, whose team was eliminated by the 洛杉矶公羊队 in the playoffs, already has questions about what he’s going to decide on the 2022 season since he only signed a one-year deal to return to the team for this season.

汤姆·布雷迪 also mulls his future, it could be a mutual decision between both players about whether they decide to play in 2022. Gronkowski told Fox News Digital in a recent interview he will take a few weeks to decide what he will do and will leave Brady’s decision to the seven-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback.

Tom’s gotta do what he’s gotta do. 你懂, I can’t speak for him, but whatever is best for him and his family, I totally understand. Everyone really wants to see him play football,” the veteran tight end told Fox News.

But for myself, I’m just going to take some time, get my mind away from football for a couple of weeks. 你懂, let that decision come naturally in a couple weeks. 截至目前, 你懂, you can’t make the decisions. Your emotions are just flying so high, they’re up and down, especially after a loss like that. It definitely stings a little bit.

You just want to settle down, let everything flush out, and in a couple of weeks make a decision from there. See how you’re feeling, what I’m thinking then. It’s going to be a little process, but I’m definitely going to take my time with it, 毫无疑问. But we’ll see what happens man, anything can be up in the air.

Gronkowski will go down as one of the greatest tight ends of all time. The four-time Super Bowl champion has 621 抓住 9,286 yards and 92 touchdowns in 143 career regular-season games. He and Brady have the most touchdowns for a quarterback-receiver combo in playoff history.

When asked whether there was something he wanted to accomplish in his career, Gronkowski provided two things.

I definitely always wanted to throw a touchdown pass, no doubt about that. That would be legendary. 你懂, if I play again, to be able to throw a touchdown pass. That’s given me an idea that if I do play, I definitely got to try and get that. 你懂, 教练, 来吧, let’s do a reverse and I throw a pass,” 他告诉福克斯新闻.

That would be really cool, but one thing that I would really actually love to try more than that, 把手放下, is just kick an extra point, kick a field goal. I think that’s harder than even throwing a touchdown pass. But kick a field goal – that would be fun, it’d be entertaining. And no matter how bad or how good I do, I feel like it would be well worth it.

While Gronkowski and the Buccaneers are out of the playoffs, he will give one lucky NFL fan and up to 15 of their friends a chance to party at his Massachusetts home for the Super Bowl. Gronkowski partnered with Groupon for the day of fun activities and the game.
