Super Bowl rings are the only rings in the picture during Big Game weekend, at least for Rob "Gronk" Gronkowski!

The four-time Super Bowl champ and his longtime girlfriend Camille Kostek are in Las Vegas for Big Game Weekend, but quickly tying the knot in the wedding chapels synonymous with the city is not of interest to the couple.

When chatting with PEOPLE at Frito-Lay's “Chip Strip” activation off the New York New York Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on Thursday night, Gronk shared his thoughts on a Vegas chapel wedding and whether it's a possibility for him and Kostek.

"Not during the Super Bowl right now. There's too much going on," says Gronk — who first met the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model in 2013 and made their relationship public in 2016. "That would have to be more of an intimate setting."

"There's a lot going on right here in Vegas," says the NFL star who has a hectic schedule ahead of him in the days leading up to the Super Bowl, filled with various appearances at fan events and throwing an eponymous Super Bowl party of his own, his annual Gronk Beach event, on Saturday.

"We are just getting through this week and then we'll see what happens from there," Gronk explains, explaining that Kostek is also "doing appearances left and right." He adds, "She loves the whole Super Bowl experience as well."

Despite the fun couple's consistency for being the life of the party at events, he says that the pair — who aren't yet engaged — "both favor being outside of Vegas for a vacation or anything special like that." Believe it or not, Gronk admits, "Vegas is too crazy."

Between the Big Game alone and it being held in Vegas for the first time, Gronk described the Super Bowl as "a double whammy" this year. "You have to add up... this may be a dangerous weekend for many, including myself."

However, the NFL champ doubled down on an ambitious goal he has in mind for Vegas Super Bowl weekend: "I'm going to stay out of trouble, I guarantee it!" he says.

Instead, Gronk is letting out his energy in different ways, like he did at the Frito-Lay experience that transformed part of the Las Vegas Strip into the “Chip Strip” within the New York New York Hotel & Casino, featuring brand-inspired activations.

Among them was Dorito's “Dinamita Flavor Duel," which saw Gronk go head-to-head against a competitor in a jousting battle — complete with helmets and oversized foam “Dinamita sticks” in a boxing-like ring — in front of a crowd on the Strip.

"We are here with the fans. We are here with Frito-Lay. We are here with Marshawn Lynch, absolute Beast Mode. What else can I say?" Gronk tells PEOPLE exclusively backstage at the event.

"It's always a pleasure being with Frito-Lay. We did the Taste of Super Bowl commercial this year," he says of the brand's spot that's been playing throughout this year's playoffs and will air before the Super Bowl on Sunday as well.

"Just an unbelievable spot and just so much fun to do," says Gronk.
