According to Pro Football Talk, the New England Patriots expect tight end Rob Gronkowski and quarterback Tom Brady to play this upcoming season. Brady is reportedly uncertain about coming back, while Gronkowski is reportedly considering retirement.
A source reportedly told Mike Florio, who runs PFT, that the Patriots expect both of their stars to return. The football site is calling this story a “non-story.”
Brady did not appear at the Patriots voluntary offseason workouts. But he is reportedly working with his teammates offsite.
According to The Athletic’s Jeff Howe, Gronk is “happy living life and [is] generally just taking a little extra time away.” Gronkowski, according to reports, was considering walking away to pursue an acting or wrestling career.
When training camp rolls around in July, both are expected to be there for the Patriots. New England lost to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII in Feb. to win their first Super Bowl in franchise history.
The 28-year-old Gronkowski, who was a second-round draft pick by the Patriots in the 2010 NFL Draft, appeared in 14 games last season. He had 69 receptions for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns.
He had three games, where he had more than 100 yards in receiving yards. He also had three games accomplishing this in 2016 despite only playing in eight games.
Gronkowski has had only four seasons where he surpassed 1,000 yards in a campaign.
Brady, the Patriots living legend, who will be 41-years-old in Aug., appeared in 16 games last season. He went 385 of 581 for 4,577 passing yards.
During his MVP season, he also had 32 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
