Patriots reportedly have 'legit' interest in Lamar Jackson, hosted him twice

Two of their most important players, quarterback Tom Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski, were both sending mixed signals about their future. "We fought all year long, all the receivers, running backs, linemen, we put all the work in together, so I'm just going to reflect on the season, proud of the boys, and just see what happens". This return was met with a sigh of relief from fans and the team's staff alike, ensuring that a key component will be ready for yet another championship run.

After missing a number of games in the 2013-2014 season, he stormed back to win the NFL Comeback Player of the Year award in the 2014-2015 season, also helping the Patriots defeat the Seattle Seahawks in thrilling fashion to capture his first Super Bowl ring.

He turns 29 in May, but has had several injury setbacks in recent years.

If Gronk did announce his retirement during this offseason, that may have prompted Brady to play elsewhere, if not call it a career himself.

While the drama out of New England isn't fully resolved, the return of offensive coordinator (and very likely next head coach of the Patriots) Josh McDaniels has prevented this offseason from completely spiraling out of control.

Rob Gronkowski does his patented touchdown celebration as he spikes the ball after scoring against the Denver Broncos.

ESPN's Adam Schefter followed up Gronk's post with a tweet reporting that Gronkowski officially won't be traded.

After skipping voluntary workouts last week, Gronkowski added fuel to the fire with a freaky promotional news conference that cited dirt-biking as the reason for his continued absence. Most importantly, he got an idea of what the New England Patriots thought about him, his talent and his ability. He threw for 3,660 yards with 27 touchdowns and 10 interceptions while rushing for 1,601 yards and 18 touchdowns his junior season in 2017. Instead, the tight end has been working out at the TB12 Center, which is in Patriot Place and next to the stadium.

This draft is full of value running backs who can be drafted in the middle rounds and Hines seems like a solid fit for New England. "That part was fairly obvious; here's where Peter goes next level (and I think directly to the heart of the matter): If Gronkowski hadn't given a commitment to playing in 2018, coach Bill Belichick quite possibly would have traded Gronk before or during the draft".
