Compare that to Tom Brady, who made clear that he will continue to play and is not retiring.
Retirement rumors dogged Gronkowski during last year’s Super Bowl and was a topic during the offseason. He decided to return for another season, but after winning it all, you have to figure it would be a good time for Gronk to finally walk away. He played hurt all season, has dealt with multiple injuries throughout his career, and he’s a future Hall of Famer. What more does he have to prove?
