Earlier this week, Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski made headlines with a tweet about his potential future.

"Year 11 in the books. What a ride it’s been," Gronkowski tweeted. "Grateful to the Bucs for giving me an opportunity to play another year. To my teammates, thank you for giving everything you had. The sweat we shed & memories made will never be forgotten. Thanks to the #Krewe too. Year 12???" 

Fans are all wondering if Gronk will be coming back for another year. However, the star tight end doesn't seem to be in a hurry to make his decision. Instead, he's doing media rounds and giving the football world some content.

During an interview with Kevin Clark of the Ringers, Gronkowski was asked to name the toughest player he ever played against. After a brief moment of thought, he decided to go with former All-Pro linebacker Terrell Suggs.

"Terrell Suggs. That guy's a beast. He's big, but he's also fierce when he comes off the ball and he's got power," Gronk said about Suggs.

Gronk has played against some of the NFL's best during his decade-plus in the NFL. Suggs was one of the most dominant linebackers on one of the most dominant defenses in the NFL - so Gronk's choice makes sense.

There's still one question fans want answered, though.

Will Gronk return for another year?
