Rob Gronkowski isn't ready to talk about retirement yet, but the New England Patriots tight end did offer a timetable regarding a decision on his playing future.
"As of right now, those are the last things I'm thinking of. ... I love playing the game," he said when asked about his future. "After a long season, after the [Super Bowl], a few weeks down the road, you sit back, you relax, you get some downtime, enjoyment time. And you just see where you want to go with it."
Pressed on whether he wants to play beyond this season, Gronkowski replied, "That's a tricky question. You're trying to get around me. You're just trying to get you some answers over there, baby. But, like I said, I don't know. I haven't done that sit-down yet. I've got to do that sit-down. About two weeks after [the season]. Then I'll know."
