Is Gronk's Boston condo being for sale an indicator of his future with Patriots?

Is Gronk's Boston condo being for sale an indicator of his future with Patriots?

It's another offseason of uncertainty for the Patriots and their fans as they again await a decision from Rob Gronkowski on whether he'll continue his football career or retire.

On one hand, the All-Pro tight end has still been frequenting the team facility at Gillette Stadium since the Super Bowl, on the other, the seaport condo that is likely his Boston digs was just put on the market for $2.4 million.

While the listing agent for the property wouldn't reveal the name of the owner to Boston Magazine, the Boston Herald reported back in 2016 that the penthouse sold to Gronkowski Endorsements LLC for $1.9 million. 

Here's a look at the place, via zillow.com:

While a mere real estate sale doesn't begin to predict a player's future, that didn't stop the speculation to begin that Gronk has his bags packed and he's ready to kick that movie career into high gear.

Earlier this week, NBC Sports Boston Patriots Insider Tom E. Curran wrote that getting Gronk some help at tight end, after the Patriots released Dwyane Allen, could be a factor in the big guy's decision, along with him not exactly being ecstatic about his contract situation.

Crazy stat reveals how unlikely Josh Gordon's sideline catch vs. Jets was

Crazy stat reveals how unlikely Josh Gordon's sideline catch vs. Jets was

Josh Gordon's skills as a receiver are unquestioned. He's been a Pro Bowler and he has a career average of over 17 yards per catch.

On Sunday afternoon against the Jets, those skills were on full display as he skied over Jets cornerback Darryl Roberts to make a phenomenal 28-yard reception on third and 22. Gordon somehow got both feet inbounds to set up a first-and-goal, and a Patriots touchdown just three plays later.

Watching it in real time — and again in slow motion — the grab was highly improbable. Now we know exactly how unlikely it was.

According to NFL's Next Gen Stats, the play had only a 15.8 percent chance of resulting in a completion. That's the third-lowest completion probability of any completed pass so far this season.

Making the catch even harder? Gordon had injured his hand earlier in the game when trying to block New York's Trumaine Johnson — and that's after going to the blue medical tent earlier in the game after a hard fall.

No wonder Phillip Dorsett called him a "warrior" after the game.

Tom E. Curran's Patriots-Jets Preview/Review: New England didn't dominate

Tom E. Curran's Patriots-Jets Preview/Review: New England didn't dominate

While the Patriots defense once again dominated for a fourth straight game, dating back to last season's Super Bowl, Sunday's win over the Jets wasn't as overwhelming as it could have been.

Though New England jumped on top early and raced out to a 30-0 lead, the offense stalled in the second half thanks in part to injuries and absences. Meanwhile, the Pats allowed defensive and special teams touchdowns to ruin a bid for a second straight shutout.

So what did Tom E. Curran get right about Sunday's game? And which predictions failed?
