That would work.

IMA Gronk fan...but, if he keeps whining about not being happy, and he is usually injured...might as well trade him to the NFC for that. Make the best of the situation.

Its a tough fit to have to give up those picks and take on that salary.

If I could see any team risking this it would be the Vikings.

Odds are he stays on the Patriots for another year and then he can go wrestle or play get traded somewhere else.

Minimum 1st this year.

Second pick conditional, if he’s rostered day one of the new calendar year another 1. If not a 4.

He's going nowhere imho. Kraft would not have said what he said last week if he had doubts Gronk wasn't returning.

Gronk has been at Gillette frequently this off season and often on a daily basis. I wouldn't say those are the actions of someone who wants out.

Let’s read between the lines on both sides. For Gronk, there was definitely some fire behind the smoke regarding his relative unhappiness during the 2017 season. But right now, if all he’s got is money on his mind, it can probably be assumed Gronk has informed the Patriots that he’ll play if the contract is tweaked. Combine a couple reports to support that theory. The Herald also affirmed Sunday that Gronk and the Patriots have discussed money, and ESPN reported Gronk and the Patriots have had a positive dialogue. It all sounds like they can reach a common ground.
And then there’s Kraft’s stance. Kraft seemed to dismiss the idea that retirement was on the table at this stage in the process, and Kraft has also preached the importance of consistency and stability with the team. That’s why he gave offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels a significant raise each of the past two offseasons. That’s why Kraft said he’ll rework Tom Brady’s contract “if it becomes an issue.” So if Kraft can ensure the Patriots won’t lose their second-best player, his track record suggests he’ll do it.
The Patriots can absolutely afford to make the money work, too. They’ve got $13.9 million in cap space, and it shouldn’t be overly difficult to sweeten Gronk’s pot.

How much more does Gronk want? $2M-$3M should do nicely remembering the Pats gave him a pay raise 2 years early that included a lot of money up front with the team's reward at the back end. Gronk gladly accepted that at the time. How rigid is BB's stance? If it's only money and if Gronk isn't being piggish then a deal should be struck IF BB wants to keep Gronk enough.

From Mike Reiss

I view this as a "peaceful statement" related to his contract and don't think it's a major deal because I believe Gronkowski will be playing for the Patriots in 2018, but I also think it can't be dismissed as insignificant based on Gronkowski's past history and his standing as one of the team's leaders.

I wonder if Bill told him to stay away if he wants, Willie Mac said he would only show up for parts of it because Bill knew what he was doing on is own to train, With Alex, was more than what he would be doing at OTA's.

It is no like Josh left and he has a new OC to learn from, as if the O'Shea would change much anyway.

I think sometimes the Media plays us fans and this is one of those times.

Gronk play football, Gronk play for Bill, Gronk not dumb (see Bennett interview) and he knows what he can and can't get away with.

This is Male Soap Opera crap and we are watching as the Ball Spikes on the Patriots network.

It’s voluntary. Brady is in the Middle East. Does he want out too?

The question is rhetorical.

I don’t think he’s going anywhere.

If he did, what would he be worth?

I'm beginning to think his family might be behind all of this because he certainly doesn't need the money considering he lives off his endorsement money and has never spent a paycheck.
