Report Patriots Rob Gronkowski engage in contract talks

Schefter adds that Gronkowski and the Patriots have had "good communication" throughout the offseason.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Gronkowski is not planning to attend the start of the Patriots' offseason program.

The New England Patriots tight-end's future has been subject to speculation since he admitted he was contemplating retirement after the Patriots lost the Super Bowl against the Philadelphia Eagles in February.

Gronkowski has a $250,000 workout bonus in his contract for 2018, which is paid out based on attending a percentage of the voluntary workouts.

Rob Gronkowski's contract is back on the negotiating table.

With training camp set to begin next month, the Patriots should get their answer concerning Gronkowski at some point over the next few weeks.

Brady is missing due a commitment in Qatar for the charity, Best Buddies. He's now on a "business trip" in Qatar, according to Schefter. Brady reportedly also will miss the start of the offseason program.

Gronkowski's absence from the offseason program adds to his unusual offseason.

The star tight end is still weighing his options for the 2018 season, Schefter reported.

Gronkowski turned in yet another strong year with the Patriots in 2017.

Gronk also appeared in all three of New England's playoff games.
