Rob Gronkowski Will Miss Start Of Patriots' Offseason Program

When the Patriots begin offseason work Monday, Gronk and Tom Brady will not be there.

Gronkowski is still reportedly considering whether he'll play in the 2018 season.

The star tight end is still weighing his options for the 2018 season, Schefter reported.

Gronkowski has dealt with numerous significant injuries during his career, leading to retirement rumors after Super Bowl LII.

This year, on top of a base salary of $8 million, the 28-year-old has a $250,000 workout bonus, which normally requires him to participate in the majority of training sessions during the off-season. There is no certainty that means that he is leaning toward coming back, but it at least means that the Patriots have been kept abreast of what Gronkowski is going through.


It is not yet known how much of the program Gronkowski will miss.

As Bill Belichick noted during Friday's press conference, some players have "other commitments" that will interfere with their participation at the beginning of the offseason program.

One person who does not seem to be overly concerned by Gronkowski's future is Patriots owner Robert Kraft, who claimed the prospect of being without the two-time Super Bowl victor was nothing to be afraid of. He caught 69 passes for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns in the regular season.

Gronk also appeared in all three of New England's playoff games.
