Which quarterback does Rob Gronkowski wants to play with?

It is hard to even imagine Gronk on the field without Brady. But if the TE wants to continue playing, he will have to move forward without Tom. Rob Gronkowski did a Q and A with Autograph. During the session, he revealed which quarterback would he love to play with? 

“I kinda like this young buck quarterback. He’s in the Super Bowl now. It’s Joe Burrow, man,” Gronk said. “I watched him in college. I just love the way he presents himself out on the football field. In the pocket, he’s just so calm, and he just slings it out on the field.”

It seems like Gronk has followed the career of Joe Burrow for a long time. And he is a fan of the way Burrow presents himself like a true superstar. “I just love his swag, too. If I had to pick a quarterback, it’d be the young buck, Joe Burrow. He’s killing it right now in the game.” Rob added.
