New England Patriots almost traded Rob Gronkowski to the Detroit Lions

May JohnsonSep 24, 2018

It appears the offseason trade rumors surrounding Rob Gronkowski were legitimate, as the New England Patriots almost sent their star tight end to the Detroit Lions before the NFL draft, league sources told Adam Schefter of ESPN.

And after the loss, Gronkowski confirmed the report - and all of the other ones, even - as being the truth. "Brady's my quarterback. That's all". "That's all. Wasn't going anywhere without Brady".

New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead left Week 3 action with a neck injury in the third quarter against the Detroit Lions.

Iran says Europe offers new trade proposals amid US sanctions
In May, the Trump administration had pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal and brought back economic sanctions against Tehran. So far, the 28-nation bloc has not put forward a concrete proposal for making payments to Iran for buying of oil.

The return for Gronkowski may never be known, but it's not unfathomable that Detroit would give up a first round pick for one of the greatest tight ends in National Football League history.

Gronkowski was asked about the report on Sunday night and stated in no uncertain terms that it was correct. "There's no basis to it and it gets a life of its own". "I don't think anyone is eliminated today". He has 138 yards and a touchdown through two weeks this season heading into Sunday night's contest versus the Lions. That prompted the Patriots to sit down with him and give him a refashioned contract that adds $4.3 million incentives for the 2018 season.
