Calling the chance to compete for his third Super Bowl ring a “once in a lifetime opportunity,” three-time Super Bowl champion Rob Gronkowski told reporters this week that he was thrilled to being playing in the Super Bowl this weekend.
“I can’t wait to get out on that field and give it my all,” said the future hall of fame tight end, who recorded six catches for 87 yards in the Patriots win over the Rams. “I know the moment I step on that field is one I’ll cherish for the rest of my life.”
Gronk is reportedly not taking his blessing for granted as he plans to play in his fifth super bowl. “I feel so blessed to be able to go to my third straight super bowl, I’ve had some injury trouble in the past season or two, so I’m really grateful to participate this weekend.”
At press time, Gronkowski was seen texting teammates asking if anyone was missing a superbowl ring as he found an extra one in his bag.
