Rob Gronkowski will not attend start of offseason workouts

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski

After not shooting down reports that he could stepping away from football after Super Bowl LII, the Patriots tight end will not report to the beginning of New England's offseason program Monday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Patriots tight end is still weighing his options and contemplating his future.

The Patriots begin their voluntary off-season conditioning program Monday and Rob Gronkowski will apparently not take part.

ESPN's Mike Reiss reported the five-time All-Pro has a $250,000 workout bonus in his contract for 2018 that he would receive in the event he attends a certain amount of his team's offseason program. While most players are expected to report to the facility, they are not contractually obligated to do so. The workouts are voluntary.

This has pushed the Patriots into a hard situation where the organization has had to continue to wait on their star tight end to make a decision.

Tom Brady will also miss the opening session, as he is in Qatar on a Best Buddies mission.

Speaking Friday, Bill Belichick said it would be heavily attended, but was aware of a few players who wouldn't make it.
