His cryptic message raised the eyebrows of NFL fans.
Fournette asked on Instagram how many No. 7 jersey’s he is going to see in the stands during the 2022 season. Gronkowski replied, “I’ll represent a 7 jersey in the stand for ya!”
Fournette responded to Gronkowski, “Say homie doesn’t make me tear up bring yo-a-back.”

Buccaneers star Tom Brady wished Gronkowski a happy birthday on his Instagram Stories on Sunday. He also asked if the tight end was “getting bored yet.”
It’s unclear what Gronkowski will decide to do. He told TMZ Sports in April he wasn’t ready to commit to football yet.
“Right now, I’m not ready to get back out on that field,” Gronkowski said. “I’m not ready to commit to the game of football right now.”
He’s been in a holding pattern since the Buccaneers were eliminated in the playoffs by the Los Angeles Rams in January.

“I’m just going to take some time, get my mind away from football for a couple of weeks,” he later told Fox News Digital at the time. “You know, let’s make that decision come naturally in a couple of weeks. As of now, you know, you can’t make decisions. Your emotions are just flying so high, they’re up and down, especially after a loss like that. It definitely stings a little bit. “
