Rob Gronkowski could possibly be traded?

Recommended Posts

The Boston Sports Journal's Greg Bedard passes along word from a "Bill Belichick-friendly source" that the longer Rob Gronkowski goes without committing to the team, the chances of the Patriots trading him increase.

This is pure speculation, but it isn't the first time we've seen it, as MMQB's Albert Breer hinted at it as well in a piece on Thursday. Both Breer and Bedard are ex-Patriots beat writers with plenty of connections to the team. Gronkowski has yet to inform the Patriots of his 2018 plans, and some think Belichick could use that as fuel to trade the star tight end, who may be tiring of playing at a massive discount in New England. Bedard mentions the 49ers and Rams as suitors should Gronkowski become available. 29-year-old (in May) Gronk is the fourth-highest-paid tight end at $9 million per year and has two years left on his deal.

Just waiting for the "Rams are interested in trading for Gronkowski after landing OBJ in a blockbuster trade"

I think this is likely a ploy to get him to commit to the team before the draft. 

 

Gronk isn't going to be traded imo

don't the Rams need a TE since they don't have an All-Pro at that position? 

They're probably hoping either Higbee or Everett take the job and run with it.

Why would anyone want him after he’s said he’s contemplating retirement. Next concussion would be it. 

He’s making $9m per year.  He likely won’t make that in his entire lifespan after he retires.  He’s not retiring any time soon.

I think Gronk could make that and more after he retires. He's a popular guy for endorsements and other outside ventures. Guy's been in a lot of commercials

Gronk would easily make more than $9m after he quits football. He pulls around $6mil a year in endorsements.

Few things:

 

1)are the Rams just assumed the favorites to get everybody now?

 

2)As dominant as he is I wouldn't trade for him. Just a bad feeling that he wouldn't produce anywhere near like he has & he wouldn't be thrilled playing for a mere mortal team, and we'd hear more & more about wrestling

 

3)why does everybody seem so miserable in NE? Things just seem different there, for the first time it almost sounds like players are wearing down from Belichick. I get the impression that the players really thought Butler got fucked in the Bowl, and I'm not even saying thus because he's on our team now
