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

The Virginia-based Flippin Bruce Porter Incorporated has invested 0.77% in Williams-Sonoma, Inc. 15,161 are held by Eqis Cap Mgmt. Following the transaction, the insider now owns 22,410 shares of the company's stock, valued at approximately $1,753,806.60.
"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.
