Rob Gronkowski Confirms That He Threatened Retirement Over Trade To Lions

Report TE Rob Gronkowski almost traded inside NFC North

Detroit was in control from the start, creating holes for rookie running back Kerryon Johnson and giving Matthew Stafford time to pass.

According to ESPN.com, the Patriots were in talks with Detroit to trade Gronkowski around the time of the National Football League draft.

This hamstring nonsense could certainly be a cover for Gordon's inability to learn the Pats' complex playbook in just one week, but it's also very likely New England simply doesn't want to play its hand, especially in such a noncompetitive game, following a loss.

Brady pulled the Patriots within three points on a 10-yard TD pass to James White early in the third.

Mourinho Confirms Injury Boost But 4 Players To Miss Wolves Game
"I would say 75% of them are now managers, Nuno reaches the Premier League level and reached it be his own merit and credit". Wolves have benefited from close links with Portuguese super-agent Jorge Mendes, who also represents Mourinho.

"Brady's my quarterback", Gronkowski said. After the Super Bowl loss to Philadelphia, he admitted that he was contemplating retirement.

Schefter reported what would have been a blockbuster trade Sunday morning on NFL Countdown, saying the deal would have reunited Gronkowski with former Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, who took over as the Lions head coach.

"Yeah. It happened", Gronkowski said. Gronk was Brady's best target in Week 1, catching nine passes for 183 yards and one touchdown. "Brady's my quarterback. That's all". S Patrick Chung and DE Trey Flowers were inactive because of concussions.

Still, last night's game was up +18% from SNF's Game 3 last season (Washington Redskins - Oakland Raiders), which hit a then-season-low 11.6/20 at the height of the fall 2017 players protests during the national anthem, and the highest-rated Week 3 game since 2015. RB Rex Burkhead left the game in the second half with a neck injury.
