With that in mind, Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that Gronkowski will not be at the team's offseason program that begins on Monday as he is still weighing his options.

The uncertainty surrounding Rob Gronkowski continues. Gronkowski is still under contract through the 2019 National Football League season, as he still has two years left on his six-year, $54 million extension with $19 million left in both base salary and bonuses. The Patriots star has a $250,000 workout bonus that's based on attending a "percentage" of the voluntary workouts. While players are expected to report to the facility, they are not contractually obligated to do so.

The Patriots restructured Gronkowski's contract before the 2017 season to add a number of incentives, which the tight end reached during that season.

Speaking Friday, Bill Belichick said it would be heavily attended, but was aware of a few players who wouldn't make it.

As Schefter mentioned Tom Brady will also be absent on Monday, but Albert Breer of The MMQB reported this week that the 40-year-old quarterback will be in Qatar doing work with his charity.
