Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski

Tight end Rob Gronkowski reportedly won't be in attendance when the New England Patriots' offseason program begins Monday.

Schefter adds Gronkowski is still considering whether to play in the upcoming National Football League season, but has had "good communication" with New England.

The 28-year-old tight end has been secretive about whether he's going to play next season, and stories about possible friction between Gronkowski and head coach Bill Belichick have only added to that uncertainty.

The Patriots will open their voluntary offseason workouts on Monday.

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


Gronkowski reportedly grew exhausted of the "high-strung" culture within the Patriots organization.

Gronkowski turned in yet another strong year with the Patriots in 2017.

Gronk has still not committed to playing this season. The workouts are voluntary. The Patriots quarterback now is in Qatar with Best Buddies International and is not set to return until Monday night.

It's unclear whether Gronkowski is angling for more money or a trade.

Gronkowski is under contract with the Patriots through 2019.
