    when there was speculation that gronk would return, there was an article that said he had till Week 11 to report, I believe. How is it that lynch can return at playoff time and gronk could not? i thought lynch was still under contract with oakland and had not been released.

    I googled it quick and found that Lynch signed a 2-year contract with Oakland in 2017, so seems like he was an unrestricted free agent this year when he retired. So, I assume he had no issues with when/how he can return, vs. a player like Gronk who still has an active contract that he retired during.

    Lynch was not placed on the “reserve/retired” list. Gronk was to remove his salary. There’s the difference, unfortunately.

    You'd prefer the Patriots were still paying Gronk?

    Oh, no, the Pats had to do it. I also don’t think Gronk is ever coming back, either.

    I just prefer the dream stay alive. :)

    Yeah, I don't get that either. I assume the move to put him on return/retired was to free up cap space to be used elsewhere.
