Tom Brady may not be at OTAs, but he tipped his cap to a teammate who was.

Brady liked a New England Patriots Instagram post, which showed receiver Julian Edelman in his return to practice after an ACL injury. The Patriots started their offseason team activities on Monday, and Edelman was grinding away after an offseason of rehab. Brady has elected to skip the start of the voluntary OTAs. 

Report: Gronk, Patriots working on another contract restructuring

Report: Gronk, Patriots working on another contract restructuring

While Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski continue to stay away from Patriots OTAs this week comes an NFL Network report that Gronk and the Patriots are working on a restructured contract that per NFL rules can't be announced until Thursday - May 24 - a year to the date of last year's restructuring.

The Patriots have an OTA session scheduled for Thursday, so we could see Gronk back in the fold with a redone deal then. 

The restructuring last year added incentives that boosted Gronk's salary to $10.2 million. This year's base salary is $8 million. The All-Pro tight end has contemplated retirement this offseason and wasn't happy last season.
