Rob Gronkowski said after the Super Bowl that he would wait “a couple of weeks” to make a decision on retirement.
That was five weeks ago and it doesn’t appear that any news on Gronk’s future will be coming out soon.
Drew Rosenhaus, Gronkowski’s agent, was on NFL Live Monday afternoon and said that his client is still weighing whether or not he wants to play in 2019.
“I honestly don’t know,” Rosenhaus said about Gronkowski’s future plans.

The injury Gronkowski played through in the Super Bowl was a thigh problem, according to Mike Giardi of NFL Network.

Gronk also dealt with back and ankle problems in 2018. He had 47 catches and 3 touchdowns in the regular season.
This marks the second year in a row that Gronkowski has publicly weighed retirement. He is owed a base salary of $9 million with a cap hit of just under $12 million for the 2019 season.
