Patriots: Rob Gronkowski tight-lipped about return

CRAWFORD | Report: Gronkowski's Derby status in question after training setback

On Saturday, however, Gronk returned to Gillette Stadium for a freaky press conference before a Monster Energy Supercross event.

Rest easy, New England Patriots fans-the team reportedly expects quarterback Tom Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski to play during the 2018 season.

Gronkowski told NBC Sports Boston on Saturday that he is training for dirt bike racing. He still hasn't committed to playing for the 2018 season. Missing organized team activities to go dirt bike riding. I can vroom vroom really good. "I can ride that bike like no other", he said.

He added: "Wow. Coming at me". I mean, this is just me, the guy who's been around him for a while now. "I'm working hard. I'm riding these bikes - once you teach me - and drinking Monster Energy so you can get wild and do insane stuff that people don't like when I do it but I'll just do it". Just drinking Monster Energy Gronks, so you can get wild, do insane stuff that people don't like when I do it, but I'll just do it. Get insane. When Gronk was asked if he planned on attending offseason workouts Gronkowski said no because he had "dirt biking skills to work on". They probably are a little ticked off.

Brady hasn't said whether he will play in a 19th season, while Gronkowski has been just as quiet about his plans. This is worthy of being talked about and not dismissed "because they are voluntary".

Last month, Lightfoot announced he would retire on April 30, which put into question who would lead the agency. Vice President Mike Pence, chairman of the White House National Space Council, will officiate.

Gronkowski is making a joke of this situation.

But after Gronk accidentally let something slip and The Athletic uncovered a new development in his decision to bypass the start of the voluntary offseason workout program, more signs continue to point toward a return to the field in the 2018 season. Great. All the power to him.

If Belichick has taught us anything over the past 19 years, it's that something like Gronk's bizarrely flippant attitude toward offseason workouts can't possibly put a smile on his face.

Gronkowski is no longer a 22, 23-year-old young player.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the team "relatively quietly" brought Jackson to Foxboro two weeks ago, which left the organization "intrigued and impressed" with the Heisman Trophy victor. He should be a player younger players look up to, and while he does a lot of things other players should take notice of, this weekend's press conference was not one of them.
