MINNEAPOLIS (WBZ-AM) -- No parade this week--just questions over which Patriots players will be back for the 2018 season.
Some of them were asked whether they'd be back next year by reporters after their Super Bowl LII loss Sunday night.
"I'd like to process this a little bit, and I wouldn't see why I wouldn't be back," he said.
Good. Bill Belichick?
"I'm just talking about this game," said the coach.
But it was Rob Gronkowski's answer that surprised everyone.
"I'm definitely going to look at my future for sure," he said. "We'll sit down the next couple weeks, and we'll see where I'm at."
He's dealt with a number of injuries, but he's also just 28 years old, and has two lucrative years left on his contract.
"What would make you retire?" asked one reporter.
"I'm not ready for these type of questions right now," he said.
