Rob Gronkowski reportedly won't attend start of Patriots' offseason program


Rob Gronkowski is going to follow in Tom Brady's footsteps this offseason, and no we aren't talking about his diet.

Schefter adds Gronkowski is still considering whether to play in the upcoming National Football League season, but has had "good communication" with New England.

With that in mind, Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that Gronkowski will not be at the team's offseason program that begins on Monday as he is still weighing his options.

Kevin Warych, Green Bay Police Dept. "Canadians regularly show outpourings of support for us in our time of need". She went to Humboldt Public School with one of the deceased in the crash, team statistician Brody Hinz, 18.

"I'm definitely gonna look at my future, for sure", Gronkowski told reporters. "It will be heavily attended, but I know there are a couple players that I've talked to that have other commitments, but that's the way it always is". But Brady, who is traveling with his family, now isn't believed to be thinking about not playing next season; Gronk definitely is. He also has a $250,000 workout bonus, which typically requires participation in a significant percentage of the offseason program.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick acknowledged on Friday that not all Patriots players would be present on Monday.

It's unclear whether Gronkowski is angling for more money or a trade.
