Gronk won't be at start of Patriots' offseason program, still weighing future

Gronk won't be at start of Patriots' offseason program, still weighing future

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

This all began after the Super Bowl when Gronkowski wouldn't commit to playing in 2018.

If Gronk does decide to step away from football, Dwayne Allen is now in line to be quarterback Tom Brady's No. 1 option at tight end.

Schefter adds that Gronkowski and the Patriots have had "good communication" throughout the offseason. The Pro Bowl tight end has two years and $17 million remaining on his contract.

Gronk does have incentive to be in Foxborough for the workouts at some point.

Dwayne Johnson powers Rampage past A Quiet Place at the box office
" A Quiet Place ", in its second week, took in a healthy US$32.6 million, buoyed by rave reviews. The film, which earned $10.5 million on Friday, should net $31-35 million for the weekend.

The Patriots open the voluntary portion of their offseason program on Monday. While most players are expected to report to the facility, they are not contractually obligated to do so.

ESPN's Adam Schefter was the first to report the news of Gronkowski missing the beginning of the workouts.

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

Last season, the Patriots tight end picked up 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns in 14 regular season games.
