Rob Gronkowski will not attend start of offseason workouts

Rob Gronkowski will not attend start of offseason workouts

The tight end will not be in attendance for the start of the off-season workouts, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Even though he has been working out at TB12, and getting his body in shape, Gronkowski still has yet to fully commit to playing the 2018 season.

Rob Gronkowski is going to follow in Tom Brady's footsteps this offseason, and no we aren't talking about his diet. Last year, the Patriots restructured Gronk's contract, allowing him to be paid as one of the highest tight ends in the league if he hit certain incentives, which he did.

Of course, the real takeaway from Schefter's report is that Gronkowski and the Pats "have had good communication" as the tight end works through his decision. He is not expected to participate in the voluntary workouts either.

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.

Speaking Friday, Bill Belichick said it would be heavily attended, but was aware of a few players who wouldn't make it.
