Now that future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady has officially called it a career, his longtime teammate in both New England and Tampa Bay will need a new quarterback to play with if he decides to continue his career. And he already has one top-end name in mind.
Gronkowski, who can become an unrestricted free-agent in March, has declared that he'd love to play with Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, who has lead his team to their first Super Bowl berth in 32 years to be played this Sunday.
"I kinda like this young buck 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 just love the way he presents himself out on the football field. In the pocket, he’s just so calm, and he just slings it out on the field."
"I just love his swag, too. If I had to pick a quarterback it’d be the young buck, Joe Burrow. He’s killing it right now in the game," he added.
The 33 year old tight end was already lured out of retirement once already, joining Brady in Tampa Bay when the legendary quarterback took his talents to Florida. Could he soon join Burrow in Cincinnati?
