NFL teams are eyeing New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.
A couple teams were preparing trade offers for Gronk during owners meetings in Orlando, according to MMQB's Albert Breer.
Last week, we mentioned this in the GamePlan (https://t.co/3cCCQbHsEU), and I'd repeat it -- my expectation is the Patriots will be getting trade calls on TE Rob Gronkowski. In fact, a couple teams told me in Orlando that they were planning on making them.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 2, 2018
The news comes after ESPN reported Gronk will likely return to the Patriots in 2018 despite mulling retirement. However, he and Bill Belichick are dealing with lingering frustrations. Belichick is concerned about Gronk's buy-in while Gronk is growing weary of the high-strung environment Belichick creates at One Patriot Place.
Gronk finished the 2017 season with 69 catches for 1084 yards and nine touchdowns. He helped the Patriots make a Super Bowl berth, where Gronk logged nine catches for 116 yards and two touchdowns in the Patriots' losing effort against the Philadelphia Eagles.
