The last time Rob Gronkowski took over the field, he had nine catches for 116 yards and two touchdowns in Super Bowl LII against the Eagles. The patriots lost.
Could that have been Gronks last game with the Patriots?
Apparently this possibility is on the table. After the loss, Gronkowski would not commit to returning to football, with the possibility of retiring. It seems the wind blows in the direction of Gronkowski
According to Boston Sports Journal, the product of the University of Arizona, which vacillates in its decision, could be disappointing for coach Bill Belichick.
By BSJ …
A Bill Belichick-friendly source agreed with my thoughts that once a player gets Belichick to think about life without him, Belichick starts to warm up without this player to be. "He imagines you're off," he said. The longer Gronkowski takes for granted, the greater the chance that he will be traded, the source said.
The price quoted is a "first choice" if the team has it, but rather a high second rounder and a third. "
If this is indeed true and Gronkowski is in the trading bloc, the next question will be, what exactly will the market be for him.

Which Teams Are Candidates?
The Grants could compose a compelling package for Gronkowski's wind-up winding assets in stores for the # 2 total pick and / or star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Although, Beckham and Gronkowski in the same offense practically un would be sustainable.
The 49ers owns a two-round pick and two third-rounders, as well as Gronkowski's old teammate in quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.
The bills are flush with draft picks and Gronkowski comes from Buffalo.
The cowboys would be useful as a candidate. With recipient Dez Bryant on a steep decline – and possibly released anyway – Dallas is lacking for offensive arms and general manager / owner Jerry Jones is vulnerable to brave personnel decisions.
The Rams appear to be associated with every star player available lately, including Beckham, and there is no reason to believe that they would not inquire about Gronkowski's availability.
It is unclear – and unlikely – if the Patriots are actually interested in trading the league's best tight end, but they will have options if they go in that direction.
