Rob Gronkowski will not attend start of offseason workouts

Rob Gronkowski will not attend start of offseason workouts

Since the New England Patriots fell short in Super Bowl LII against the Philadelphia Eagles, there has been much uncertainty surrounding All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski's future.

Gronkowski reportedly grew exhausted of the "high-strung" culture within the Patriots organization. He is mulling retirement, and is unsure if he'll play in 2018. The final two years, however, weren't touched.

"We have the voluntary offseason program that starts on Monday", Patriots coach Bill Belichick said last week. While most players are expected to report to the facility, they are not contractually obligated to do so. The workouts are voluntary.




Tom Brady will also miss the opening session, as he is in Qatar on a Best Buddies mission. "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, too".

The Patriots restructured Gronkowski's contract before the 2017 season to add a number of incentives, which the tight end reached during that season.

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