Rob Gronkowski appeared on FanDuel TV’s Up And Adams and shared that Burrow has the desire to be in Super Bowl contention every year. Having good players and teammates around him is essential for achieving this goal. 

By surrounding themselves with talented teammates, quarterbacks increase their chances of being competitive and successful in reaching the Super Bowl consistently.

Gron believes that Burrow should follow in the footsteps of Tom Brady and prioritize NFL legacy over money. 

“I mean, what’s the difference between 47, 48 million or 53, 54 million when the next highest guy on your team is only getting paid in the 20s? There’s already that big of a difference between your pay and the next guy’s pay on your team. So who cares? I mean, if you want a team around you, take a couple million dollars less, which is nothing in the grand scheme for a quarterback. So I’m waiting for a quarterback to do that, kind of go down the Brady route, ” Gronkowski added. 

In a sports world where big contracts and lucrative endorsements are considered more important, the advice of Rob Gronkowski carries immense weight. Legacy is more important than money. Only time will tell what Joe Burrow will choose but fans and players alike are eagerly waiting for his new deal.
