It has been nearly two months since the New England Patriots lost to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LI, and Rob Gronkowski still has not committed to playing in 2018. According to one report, it is not out of the question that the star tight end could be traded even if he decides to return.
Greg Bedard of Boston Sports Journal speculates that Bill Belichick could toy with the idea of trading Gronkowski if the indecisiveness lasts much longer. One Bill Belichick-friendly source apparently agrees with that line of thinking.
I’m just going to do, like I did today, everything that’s in my power, Bonnafon said. Hopefully somebody likes me, and if the opportunity presents itself to get drafted, I’ll be happy. And if not, I’m definitely going to go into camp ready to go. Whichever way is fine with me.
Jerry Jones has been coy about discussing Bryant’s contractual situation, but vice president Stephen Jones has been public about the need for Bryant to shave his deal a bit.
More It’s become a sports cliche for evaluating NFL at this point, but the greatest ability being availability is true. Randy Gregory has been one of the more disappointing prospects in the last few years as his NFL career has been derailed at nearly every juncture in the last three years. The former second-round pick was once projected as a high first-round selection until he tested positive for marijuana at the 2015 NFL combine.
He then missed or failed as many as five drug tests after being drafted, which led to the Dallas Cowboys defensive end being suspended for the entire 2017 season. However, Gregory is now preparing to apply for reinstatement according to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. There are still steps to take and paperwork to file before Gregory is close to going before commissioner Roger Goodell to petition for his reinstatement.
