Rob Gronkowski recently played for a charity event; he initially announced his retirement in 2019 but returned in 2020 to join New England Patriots teammate Brady on the Buccaneers. He recently explained why he is still undecided on his future in football.
Gronkowski appeared for an interview with TMZ Sports and talked about how he wanted to throw instead of catching because he wouldn’t want to get an urge to make a decision that he might regret later. He pointed out he’s “not ready to commit” to another season.
“I knew if I started catching some passes that my head would have started turning, like, ‘Oh, crap, I got to get back out on the field. Right now, I’m not ready to get back out on that field. I’m not ready to commit to the game of football right now.”
Gronkowski is currently a free agent and plans not to sign a new contract until he is hundred percent sure about his future.
“Even in your 30s, I mean, you just can’t just slack it and just be 50% all-in, then you’re going to get caught off with the game and it’s going to just spit you right out. You’ve got to be fully dedicated. I’m not ready to do that yet, I’m not going to sign a contract if I’m not fully ready.”
In the meantime, he’s enjoying his offseason and announced that Gronk Beach is making its return this year at the NFL draft in Las Vegas later this month. He said the party would happen on April 29. Fans eagerly wait to know what the 32-year-old will plan for his future on the field.
