Gronkowski tells Belichick he's playing this year

  • Louisville Cardinals quarterback Lamar Jackson

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski says he is returning for his ninth National Football League season.

Gronkowski announced via his Instagram account Tuesday that he'll play in 2018, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports. We can all look forward to seeing more Brady-to-Gronkowski touchdowns next season.

It's possible that the Patriots are offering some extra financial incentives for him to return, as they did last year in re-working his contract, which has two years left, to pay him more money if he attained certain thresholds. Not so much because of his talent as some have called Jackson the most talented player in this draft, but I have a hard time imagining the Patriots taking a quarterback in the first round.

Scores Killed in Fresh Attacks On Benue Community
They recognized the challenges faced by the herdsman, but expressed the need for better alternatives to open grazing. Akase also said 10 people were killed in a similar incident a few days prior to the attack.

The announcement allows members of Patriots Nation to take a deep breath - yes, there was speculation following the Super Bowl that Gronkowski would retire and pursue other opportunities. Though he missed his junior season due to back surgery, he was later drafted by the New England Patriots in the 2010 NFL Draft. "I would expect that Gronkowski and the team are going to discuss that".

Gronkowski, who hasn't played a full season since 2011, caught 69 passes for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns last fall to earn All-Pro honors.

Coach Bill Belichick must have been pleased with the meeting, as agent Drew Rosenhaus told ESPN that "it was very positive and Rob is committed". An injury kept him sidelined for all but one game his rookie season, but he's bounced back to have 13½ sacks over the past two seasons.

Even with the off-field headlines and Brady and Gronkowski's delay in fully committing to a return, the Patriots figure to be on the short list of Super Bowl contenders if they do both play. Like the Coca-Cola secret formula, a team's strategy on draft night is closely guarded to give them as great an advantage as possible in landing their player.

Gronkowski added that he was "not ready for these type of questions right now".
