Gronkowski will be 31 years old when next season opens. Brady, of course, just left the Patriots for the Buccaneers in free agency.

Heres TMZ with more on the latest with Gronkowski:

Just call Rob Gronkowski the pancake man ... 'cause hes flipping AGAIN on retirement talk -- this time saying hes not totally done with football after all!!! The NFLs greatest-ever tight end has been in a tug-o-war almost since the day he quit the NFL in 2019 ... going back and forth on whether or not hes officially done.

The latest? Gronk told Andy Cohen this week on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen that a reunion with Tom Brady in Tampa Bay aint totally out of the question.

Im feeling good right now, the Patriots legend said. Im happy where Im at. You just never know, man. You just never know. You never know. Im not totally done.

Gronk says the only thing thats holding him back is a passion for the game ... adding, I like to stay in shape, but Ive gotta get that feeling back.

Rob retired in March 2019 ... and has said injuries -- including roughly 20 concussions -- played a big role in him calling it a career at the age of 29.

Gronkowski appeared on Cohens show to promote Survive & Thrive: COVID-19 Celebrity Challenge, which will be live streamed on the Facebook channel of the Arthritis Foundation on Wednesday at 8 p.m.

During the event, Gronkowski and other celebrities including Hall of Fame linebacker Brian Urlacher will face off in various physical and personal challenges that provide an authentic peek into the lives of celebrities as they adjust to a life in isolation.

Free to watch, the event will include both entertaining and educational culinary, athletic, and business challenges, along with challenges for the viewers with a chance to win special prizes for those who donate to the Arthritis Foundation.
