Rob Gronkowski Not 100 Percent Sure He’ll Be Back Playing in New England in 2018

Just moments after the Pats lost a heartbreaker to the Eagles in Super Bowl LII, the question was asked to New England tight end Rob Gronkowski about coming back to the team next season.

Again dealing with injuries but short of 30 years old, ‘Gronk’ answered the question stating that he wasn’t 100 percent sure that he would be back in 2018.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk sent out a tweet in the hours leading up to the game saying that it would “not shock me” if Gronkowski retired after the game. It was preceded by a disclaimer saying it was probably “99 percent” speculation, but the tweet led to questions nonetheless, and the All-Pro tight end did nothing to shoot it down.

“I’m definitely going to look at my future for sure,” Gronkowski said after wondering aloud how the story “got out there” so quickly. “I’ll sit down in the next couple of weeks and see where I’m at.”

So while various reports speculated that Belichick could hang up his whistle after the season, it was Gronkowski talking about the end after the game. He finished with nine catches for 116 yards and a pair of touchdowns, but it wasn’t enough.
