Rob Gronkowski to miss Patriots offseason program

Rob Gronkowski to miss Patriots offseason program

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will not attend the beginning of the team's offseason program, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Rapoport reports that Gronkowski has trained this offseason at the TB12 Sports Therapy Center and the expectation remains that he will play in 2018. Moreover, it wouldn't be much of a shock to see the Patriots use one of their draft picks later this month on selecting a tight end to build organization depth at the position.

Monday's offseason workouts are voluntary.

Schefter adds that Gronkowski and the Patriots have had "good communication" throughout the offseason. The Patriots quarterback now is in Qatar with Best Buddies International and is not set to return until Monday night.




Quarterback Tom Brady is returning home from a trip to Qatar.

Gronkowski's absence from the offseason program adds to his unusual offseason. But Brady, who is traveling with his family, now isn't believed to be thinking about not playing next season; Gronk definitely is.

The 28-year-old is coming off yet another highly productive campaign that saw him lead the Patriots with 69 receptions (69), 1,084 receiving yards (1,084), and eight touchdowns that earned him a Pro Bowl selection and a First-Team All-Pro nod. He was also a force in the playoffs, catching three scores in three games.
