The New England Patriots kickoff their off-season workouts on Monday.  According to Adam Schefter, tight end Rob Gronkowski is not expected to be in attendance. 

Schefter reports that Gronk is still undecided on playing in 2018.  He is still communicating with the Patriots, which could be a good sign that he’ll eventually return.  

At this point, Gronk could be using the threat of retirement to get out of all the off-season workouts.  He still has time to make up his mind, although every day that passes has to be worrisome if you’re a Patriots fan.
