“They never do extensions two years out, but they are at least open to taking a look at Gronkowski’s deal and giving him some more money which he no doubt deserves,” Rapoport said on Monday’s NFL Up to the Minute.
“He has stayed away from the Patriots, which is believed to be related to his contract,” Rapoport continued. “When they do come up with a new deal or part of a new deal, Gronkowski will in fact probably show up.”
None of the specifics are known at this point, but Gronk is currently set to make $8 million in base salary, including a $656K roster bonus and $250K workout bonus. His current contract runs through 2019.
