New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski admits he does not know if Super Bowl LIII will be his last NFL game.
Asked at Super Bowl media night if he is considering retirement after this season, Gronkowski responded, "Oh ... I don't know. I don't know."
He then reiterated that he's not thinking about the possibility one way or another yet, with his focus remaining on the Super Bowl.
He plans to ponder the "tricky question" two weeks after Sunday's game.
Meanwhile, one of Gronkowski's 2010 draft classmates spoke openly about possibly considering retirement.
Patriots safety Devin McCourty suggested that a victory on Sunday - which would give him his third ring and give his twin brother, Patriots cornerback Jason McCourty, his first - could lead him to walk off into the sunset.
"I don't know for sure, man, but I do look at it - if we can win this game, win it with my brother, I don't know what else I can do that'll top that," Devin McCourty said.
"So I'm just trying to make sure I enjoy this season and enjoy these last couple days with these guys."
