Gronkowski 'strongly resisted' Patriots trade talk

Cassandra Castillo | 09 September, 2018, 22:26

The report also notes Alex Guerrero played a role as well, as Gronkowski didn't want to leave him as he has helped him feel the best he's ever felt playing the game.

NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Sunday that trade talks involving the star tight end got "pretty intense" and a deal was all but finalized before Gronkowski stepped in to stop the team from shipping him to another team.

According to Rapoport, that's when Gronkowski himself intervened.

When the tight end learned that a trade was nearing, he strongly resisted.

After mulling retirement this offseason, Gronkowski is returning for his ninth season in the National Football League, all with the Patriots. Gronkowski told the Patriots that he would rather retire than play for another team. He then signed a reworked contract to add $4.3 million in incentives and bonuses for the 2018 season.

Rob Gronkowski doesn't want to play for anyone else or with anyone else. But as long as he's suiting up, it looks like it will be in a Patriots uniform.
