In the wake of prodding a re-visitation of football following a Super Bowl triumph, tight end Rob Gronkowski told TMZ on Wednesday that he will play again in 2021.
“I’m back, man!” Gronkowski said. “I will be back playing football, man. I love the game of football. I loved playing last year. I had a great time.”
Gronkowski, 31, got 45 passes for 623 yards and seven touchdowns in his first season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers following nine years in New England.
He caught six balls for 67 yards and two touchdowns in the Bucs’ Super Bowl triumph over the Kansas City Chiefs.
Gronkowski is planned to become a free agent, yet he’s required to stay with the Bucs and quarterback Tom Brady in 2021.
The future Hall of Fame tight end has gotten 566 passes for 8,484 yards and 86 touchdowns in his career.
