BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Patriots won their sixth Super Bowl earlier this month but, before the Big Game, Rob Gronkowski said he was still debating whether to return for the 2019 season.
"After a long season, after the game, a few weeks down the road, you sit back, you relax, you get some downtime, enjoyment time, and you see where you want to go with it," Gronk said.

There's still no word from Gronkowski, but the tight end's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, stopped by ESPN's "NFL Live" Tuesday and provided an update.
"Right now Rob is thinking it through, giving it a lot of thought," Rosenhaus said. "Rob will certainly, I think, make a decision in the foreseeable future. I don't want to put any pressure on him and give him a time frame, but I would imagine that it would be sometime within the next couple of weeks."
Gronkowski's 29. Next year would be his 10th in the NFL, but this is the second straight offseason the four-time All-Pro's wavered over whether to continue playing, and he's coming off an injury-plagued campaign that limited him to some career-worst numbers in 13 regular season games.
