Chatter regarding a potential trade of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski continues to bubble up from time to time in part because Gronkowski has yet to get a new contract. And a new contract won’t be coming in the immediate future.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, a new contract for Gronkowski is “likely,” but “nothing is imminent.”
According to the story and the source, there is still plenty of work to do. While a trade is possible, Gronk was quoted as saying that was 'fake news.'
