Report: Gronk's agents won't comment on his plans

While the Patriots await word from Rob Gronkowski as he mulls retirement, his agents told the Boston Herald that they wouldn't comment on their client's future plans.

The Rosenhauses spoke to The Herald's Jeff Howe at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. 

NBC Sports Boston Patriots Insider Tom E. Curran reported that Gronkowski was unhappy and considering walking away from the Patriots since training camp. He was at odds with the team over training methods, an issue that was part of an atmosphere in Foxboro that needed "a hell of an air-clearing" from the principal players.

With NFL free agency beginning March 14, the Patriots would hope to have some clarity on Gronk's future by then. He is reportedly mulling joining the WWE and trying acting. Gronkowski, who turns 29 in May, made $10.75 million last season, including performance-based incentives. He's slated to make $9 million in 2018 and $10 million in 2019 but additional incentives could add to that.

Gronkowski moves up eight spots to 15th in NFL Network's Top 100

Gronkowski moves up eight spots to 15th in NFL Network's Top 100

Rob Gronkowski has jumped up eight spots in the NFL Network's Top 100 rankings - going from 23rd in 2017 to 15th this year.

Gronkowski was limited to eight games and 25 catches because of back surgery in 2016. The five-time Pro Bowl selection played in 14 games last season with 69 catches for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns in the regular season and 16 catches, three for TDs, in three postseason games. 

Players ranked 11th through 20th were revealed Monday night. 

Gronk is the first Patriot and highest-ranked tight end in the 2018 Top 100, which is voted on by players. Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce checked in at No. 24.

They'll probably be a Patriot quarterback somewhere in the top 10 when it's revealed next week. There was one ranked No. 1 last year.
