Rob Gronkowski will not attend Patriots offseason workoutsBy Amber Lee
Rob Gronkowski continues to debate whether he’ll continue playing football or retire. Reportedly, he will not attend the team’s opening offseason workouts.
The New England Patriots are said to have positive communication with Gronkowski, but he won’t be there Monday when the voluntary workouts commence.
Like Patriots’ QB Tom Brady, TE Rob Gronkowski will not attend the start of New England’s off-season program Monday, per source.
Gronkowski still is considering whether to play the upcoming 2018 season, and has had “good communication” with the Patriots, per source.

The Patriots have maintained throughout the offseason that they aren’t concerned about Gronkowski’s decision. Owner Robert Kraft recently said he expects Gronkowski to play, and if he does play this year, it will be for New England, which has no intention of trading its start tight end.
There have been a lot of reports that Gronkowski was not happy with the Patriots last year, and that the troubles started in training camp. Still, he ended up starting 14 games for New England, catching 69 passes for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns.
