    Gronk will NOT return to play in the NFL.

    Guaranteed.

    Hello Olsen.

    I wouldn't mind bringing him in if he was cheap and let him work as a 1A/1B option with a relatively highly drafted rookie. Take some of the load off Olsen and let the rookie learn from him.

    I think it was a tongue in cheek comment.

    I don't know how serious Olsen was being. But, if it was serious, this would seem to be a classic example of "Why not both?".

    My biggest concern (however I am open to a Gronk return) is very recently I thought I read Gronk admitted he knew he lost a step during his last season. Do you think Gronk can be good enough in 2021? Again, not against a Gronk return. Just curious.

    A lesser version of Gronk is still a pro bowler since his level of play was GOAT status

    Gronk with a step lost in 2018 was better than anything the Pats put out at TE in 2019. View him as part of the offense and not the man in the offense. Of course if they’re paying him as if he’s the man, that could cause an issue.

    Sounds like Olsen is just working the crowd. Also, when are the Raiders getting investigated for Brady tampering? ;)

    I don’t think Gronk wants to play for Belichick anymore.

    Odd question, but how do you guys think we do in 2019 if we had Gronk at TE?

    Correct. If NE is trying to get Gronk to come back, it will be futile. There is close to 0% chance he's returning based on his comments about him hating his 2018 season.

    Assuming he stayed reasonably healthy? Not to put to fine a point on it, but there would be another Patriots game day thread going on today in my opinion.

    Report: Ratings-driven NESN makes unsubstantiated claim that Greg Olsen was serious in saying the Patriots will pursue him, Rob Gronowski’s return

    Maybe make the AFC championship, but nothing beyond that. 5 million variables involved.

    For whatever reason many like to ignore 2018 Gronk and reality in general, and pretend 2019 Gronk would be prime Gronk.

    Still think the lack of a true # 1 receiver would've hurt us. Even with Gronk. Tight End wasn't the biggest issue this year.
