Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who was seen last week spending time in the pool with his on-again, off-again girlfriend Camille Kostek, appears to have no plans to attend the team’s voluntary offseason workouts.
Today, Gronk was at Gillette Stadium today for a Supercross event in Foxboro, and when asked if he’s planning to join his team next week during the optional workouts ,he answered, “I’ve been training for this dirt biking.”
When asked if he was returning next season Gronk fired off another dirt-biking joke.
“Status is: Doing really great. I’ve been riding dirt bikes, training really hard. I can VROOM VROOM really good. I can ride that bike like no other, and my speed is up there.”
Gronk was obviously joking but some Pats fans seem annoyed with his antics this offseason.
While it’s probably bad timing for Gronk to be joking around about the Pats situation considering all the drama going on in New England right now it’s still really early in the offseason to sound off the alarms. I highly doubt Belichick would trade Gronk if he thinks he’s healthy and can contribute to the team next season.
