Rob Gronkowski wants to play alongside this quarterback now that Tom Brady is retired


If Rob Gronkowski wants to continue his career in the NFL, he will have to move forward without Tom Brady.

Gronkowski, who’s a sure bet to be a first-round Hall of Famer, has played his entire career with the seven-time Super Bowl champion, and he’s previously said Brady is the only quarterback he wants to play with.

However, Gronkowski might change his mind.

During a Q&A with Autographed NFTsGronkowski admitted there is another QB he would like to play with.

“I kinda like this young quarterback. He’s in the Super Bowl now: it’s Joe Burrow, man,” Gronkowski said Tuesday, via MassLive.com. “I watched him in college. I love the way he presents himself on the football pitch. In the pocket he’s so calm and he throws it on the pitch.”

“I love his swag too. If I had to pick a quarterback, it would be young buck, Joe Burrow. He’s killing it right now in the game,” he added.

Burrow led the Cincinnati Bengals to a 10-7 record and winners AFC North. Next Sunday, the former LSU product will play his first Super Bowl. In 16 regular season games this season, Burrow threw for 4,611 yards, 34 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

Gronkowski will become an unrestricted free agent in March, and there will be a handful of teams looking to lure the former All-Pro tight end. Bengals tight end CJ Uzomah is also expected to be a free agent after the Super Bowl, meaning there’s a real chance Cincinnati will look to sign Gronkowski if it makes sense for both parties.

Gronkowski has made it clear he would like to play with Burrow, so it will be interesting to see if the Bengals show the same interest in him once free agency rolls around in a few weeks.
