ATLANTA — Sunday’s 13-3 win over the Rams will likely be the last game for at least a few members of the Patriots, but it isn’t known exactly for who just yet.

It wasn’t just Rob Gronkowski getting asked about it after the game.

Here’s a sampling of the Patriots who were asked if Sunday was their last game.

Rob Gronkowski: “Tonight, it’s about celebrating with my teammates, and that decision will be made in a week or two down the future, because that’s what it’s about, celebrating with my teammates, and that’s what I’m worried about tonight. We’re going to have a good time — Bill [Belichick] told me he’s partying tonight, so you know it’s going to be good.”

Devin McCourty: “I don’t know. I’m going to enjoy this. I don’t even know what I’m going to do tomorrow, so just going to have fun, enjoy this. Like I said all throughout this year, there’s going to be no special year like this year. Just the fun we had, the group we had, playing with my brother. The guy I started playing with when we were 10 years old, to come up here and play a whole season and win a Super Bowl together, it’s amazing.”

Matthew Slater: “You know, look, I always have to evaluate what I’m going to do, talk to my wife. I’ve always been a year-to-year player. That’s just the nature of my position. I still love to compete. I still love to play. I still feel like I can do it at a high level, so we’ll see what that means moving forward.”

Dont’a Hightower: “I mean, I don’t think that I would not play. I haven’t thought about that. I think maybe, I guess. whenever the time comes I’ll know, but until then I’m just enjoying what I’m doing and I’ll keep trying to win.”
