The goodbye of Gronkowski to NFL ended up affecting the team of Bill Belichick which has remained with an 8-1 mark thanks to the second best defense of the league in total yards, but do not find the offensive pace of years ago and have fallen to the number position 15 in total yards (366.8), after finishing fifth in 2018 (393.4).
However, Ian Rapoport recently announced that the now member of the analyst panel of Fox Sports had a talk with Robert Kraft when the first emptied his dressing in Massachusetts.
The owner of Patriots he commented to Gronk that I wanted him back for November or December, in the high part of the calendar, so that he got fit and could play the playoffs without setbacks or cramps – or what will come first for Gronk.
If it happens, it would be a good addition to Belichick and company at this point.
However, if this happens, it must necessarily occur before November 30 or during that day as a rule. The 31st day, Patriots they will travel to Houston to face Texans in the duel of Week 13, in the NRG Stadium.
When meeting Gronkowski in the list of reservations / withdrawals, if it does not reach Patriots before that date the closed wing will not be eligible in the squad to play in the remainder of the year.
But although Kraft and the team have contemplated dates and tasks of the calendar to the agenda to return to Gronkowski to his roster, the 30-year-old former player confessed before and during a live broadcast that he is happy with the decision to retire.
Rob Gronkowski is second in the history of New England with 7,861 yards received behind Stanley Morgan (10,352) and the first with more touchdowns (79) in the ranks of Patriots, for both open receivers and players of their position.
