New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is not letting his Super Bowl win be drowned out by any potential announcements. He is noncommittal on the 2019 season after the win.
The Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.
“It would be an unbelievable way to go out, but it’s not about that tonight,” he said in an interview with CBS Sports’ Tracy Wolfson. “It’s about celebrating with teammates, and then I’ll sit back, relax over the next week or two and see where I’m at.”
Gronkowski’s retirement rumors have been going on for quite some time. Even last off-season, it was first brought up, as he said he would retire if he wasn’t playing with Tom Brady.
The Patriots even considered trading Gronkowski to the Detroit Lions before those talks fell through.
He had six receptions for 87 yards. He was the second receiver in terms of yardage, behind Super Bowl LIII MVP Julian Edelman, who had 10 receptions for 141 yards.
Gronkowski also had six receptions for 79 yards in the AFC Championship game against the Kansas City Chiefs. However, in the Patriots first playoff game, he had a 25-yard reception against the Los Angeles Chargers at Gillette Stadium.
This season, Gronk made 13 appearances, including 11 starts. He had 47 receptions for 682 yards and three touchdowns.
The 682 yards were his fewest in a season since he had 540 yards during the 2016 season. The 540 yards are the fewest he ever had in a season.
