Rob Gronkowski confident Tom Brady will not retire this season

Tom Brady is not yet ready to call it quits on his NFL career just yet, at least that’s what his former teammate and friend Rob Gronkowski thinks.

On Fox’s NFL pregame show on Saturday, Gronkowski, who played with Brady in New England and Tampa Bay, was questioned about the quarterback’s future plans after the 2022 campaign, when Brady ended his short retirement to re-join the Buccaneers, who were eliminated last week from the playoffs in the wild-card round.

“Everyone wants to know about Tom Brady’s future, and I don’t even think Tom knows what his future holds right now. But let me tell you this, he was top-five in passing yards last season, he can still play the game,” Gronkowski said.

Then, Gronkowski gave some details on where the seven-time Super Bowl champion would possibly end up next. “Let me tell you, it’s going to be whatever situation intrigues him the most. Whatever opportunity makes him the most excited to play the game of football, that’s where he will be next year.”

2022-23 was not the best season for Tom Brady

The 2022 season was not exactly the best one for Tom Brady. Not only did the Buccaneers finished the season with a record that was below.500, but his 13-year marriage to Gisele Bndchen also came to an end.

Brady stated last week that he would make a decision regarding his future “one day at a time,” but some players on the Buccaneers’ roster think he won’t stay in Tampa Bay for a fourth season.

As free agency draws near, rumors about where Brady would go next are growing, with the San Francisco 49ers, Tennessee Titans, and Las Vegas Raiders reportedly in the running, according to NFL Network.
