Rob Gronkowski returned from retirement two years ago to join Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Their partnership proved to be extremely fruitful, leading to a Super championship in 2020-21 and an impressive campaign in 2021-22.
With Brady having officially called it quits, many are now wondering what that means for Gronkowski’s future.
Will he retire as well?
This week, Gronkowski’s girlfriend Camille Kostek opened up about her beau’s NFL status.
“I would love to watch him play football some more,” she said. “He knows that. I tell him.”
That said, Kostek also understands that for Gronkowski it’s about his health.
“He retired when he wasn’t feeling right,” Kostek continued. “And he came back when he felt good. So, it’s really going to be, truly, like a gametime decision.”
Kostek weighing in on this matter is unsurprising. Whether she is sending public racy messages to her hubby or they’re provocatively doing it up for Halloween likely only they can – these two have become inseparable over the years.
This past season featured its fair share of ups and downs for Gronkowski. He and head coach Bruce Arians had some occasional issues, and it remains to be seen how he feels about continuing on without the only quarterback he has ever enjoyed playoff success with.

There are a lot of intriguing NFL storylines to keep an eye on over the next few months and Gronkowski’s status is definitely one of the bigger ones.
Whether Gronkowski ultimately opts to remain in Tampa Bay, go elsewhere or retire – the decision will have significant ramifications for the NFL as a whole.
