Rob Gronkowski’s future in the NFL is up in the air at the moment.

The 32-year-old retired following the 2018 season with the New England Patriots and then he joined Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020. It took a new team and convincing from Brady to bring Gronkowski back into the game that put endless damage on his body.

The path looked clear for him to retire and move on following the 2021 season when Brady announced his retirement — but, that clearly changed a month later. Brady announced his return to the league and now Gronkowski has a decision to make before the season begins.

While in Las Vegas during the 2022 NFL Draft, Gronkowski said Julian Edelman “needs to sign with the Bucs” in order for the tight end to return for a full season.

Unfortunately, or fortunately, for Gronkowski — Edelman recently shut down the idea of joining the Buccaneers and said he’s “a one-team guy.”
