Pats' Gronkowski To Detroit Lions: It's Not You, It's Me

However, Gronkowski threatened retirement to ensure he did not land with the Lions.

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was almost dealt to the Detroit Lions the week before the 2018 NFL Draft, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday morning.

It's all Patriots or nothing for Rob Gronkowski.


Amusing enough, the Patriots play against the Lions on Sunday Night Football in a game that marks the first time Matt Patricia will be coaching against his former team. The sources who leaked the "nixed deal" assure ESPN that Gronk simply doesn't want to play anywhere other than New England, where he remains the focal point of a Tom Brady-led offense.

Detroit was about three months removed from hiring former Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia as its new head coach when a trade appeared imminent. He popped up on the Patriots injury report Thursday but the ankle issue he dealt with was a minor one, and he is expected to be good to go Sunday night.

By structuring the deal in this manner, Gronkowski's salary-cap charge for 2018 won't be dramatically affected, as the $3.3 million in incentives won't increase the charge.
