With Or Without You: Rob Gronkowski Open To All Options, Regardless Of Brady’s Decision

Videos by OutKick

Buccaneers tight end and future Hall of Famer Rob Gronkowski is a free agent, which means once again, retirement is on the table.

He was asked whether Brady’s decision will impact his future in the NFL, and he insisted that he might play next year, regardless of Brady’s future.

(Insert Will Ferrell’s “I don’t believe you” GIF.)

Gronk reeled in six touchdowns and 802 yards in 2022, which was his most since 2017. Obviously he can still play effectively. However, Tom Brady had a ton to do with that. Gronk likely knows that.

We should also remember one thing: Rob Gronkowski isn’t going to tell the media that Tom Brady’s potential retirement blows the candles out on his career too. That’s too much responsibility on Brady. A grown man must decide for himself what’s best for him and his family.

Gronk very well could retire because Tom Brady leaving would jeopardize the impact he would have on the field. He’s just never going to admit that. Ever.

Honestly, this is the first time Brady ever sounded like he was ready to move on from football. Perhaps Gronk feels the same way?
