He wanted to continue playing. Bill didn’t want to commit to him on a multi year deal at his age. I don’t blame either on their stance.Realistically, yes, he's 43 and asking him to win the SB would be a lot for his age. However, he chose to put his legacy on the line by going to the Bucs. And he brought Gronk with him. He could have done what Eli Manning did - retire after playing only for one team. I respect what Eli said and that is "Once a Giant, always a Giant, Only a Giant."
