Anonymous AFC exec thinks Gronk is still on trading block
NFL Trade Rumors
Superstar tight end Rob Gronkowski is reportedly working on a new contract extension with the Patriots--but until that deal is signed and the ink dry, executives around the league think he could still be on the trading block. Per the Boston Sports Journal's Greg Bedard, an anonymous AFC exec said the following about Gronk's situation:
"Where's the restructure of his contract? Until that's done, I think he's still available. I wouldn't be surprised if Belichick is going to test Gronk's buy-in with the contract."
After missing an opportunity to reload at the tight end position in the draft, trading away the best tight end in league history now seems highly unlikely at best. But knowing Bill Belichick and his nose for value, it's never going to be out of the question completely.
