Rob Gronkowski will not attend start of offseason workouts

16 April 2018

Tight end Rob Gronkowski reportedly won't be in attendance when the New England Patriots' offseason program begins Monday.

The Patriots tight end is still weighing his options and contemplating his future.

Gronkowski said after the Super Bowl he was considering his options and has not committed to returning for a ninth National Football League season in 2018. The final two years, however, weren't touched. The Patriots star has a $250,000 workout bonus that's based on attending a "percentage" of the voluntary workouts. He is not expected to participate in the voluntary workouts either.

Gronkowski joins teammate Tom Brady, who will also sit out the beginning of the offseason due to a business trip overseas.

Per the report, Gronkowski is thought to still be mulling his playing status for the upcoming season, but on that note Schefter relays that the tight end has had "good communication" with the Patriots on that front.

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

This has pushed the Patriots into a hard situation where the organization has had to continue to wait on their star tight end to make a decision.
