Amidst chaos for Patriots Martellus Bennett lauds Tom Brady's leadership

Tight end Rob Gronkowski reportedly won't be in attendance when the New England Patriots' offseason program begins Monday.

Naturally, with reports of a growing strain in the relationship between Belichick and his two stars, Brady and Gronkowski, there will be a keen eye kept on their absence, and how long they remain away.

Schefter adds Gronkowski is still considering whether to play in the upcoming National Football League season, but has had "good communication" with New England. Moreover, it wouldn't be much of a shock to see the Patriots use one of their draft picks later this month on selecting a tight end to build organization depth at the position.

Gronk has still not committed to playing this season.




Gronkowski has a base salary of $8 million this year.

Monday's offseason workouts are voluntary. He caught 69 passes for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns in the regular season. Schefter does note that Gronkowski has had "good communication" with the team.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft recently downplayed the possibility of Gronkowski retiring, saying "i$3 t's not even an issue for me" and explaining that Gronkowski has been present at Gillette Stadium recently, apparently to work on rehabbing injuries.
