Rob Gronkowski Says Girlfriend Camille Kostek Wants Him to Play After Tom Brady Announces Return

Rob Gronkowski hasn't quite yet decided if he's returning for another NFL season but if his girlfriend Camille Kostek has her way, he'll be back.

"I think she wants me to go back," the 32-year-old player tells PEOPLE. "She supports me for sure."

There has been speculation about the tight end's future since quarterback Tom Brady announced he was retiring and then decided to play again. The duo played together for nine NFL seasons. After leaving the New England Patriots, Brady switched teams and headed to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers where Gronkowski eventually came out of his own retirement and followed.

Speaking to PEOPLE at the rehearsals for Saturday's Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards, which he is hosting, Gronkowski says he knows one thing is for certain.

"There's one thing, if I do play football, though, it would definitely be with the Bucs," Gronkowski tells PEOPLE.

While Gronkowski takes time away from football, he certainly is not just kicking back and relaxing.
