Rob Gronkowski: Skipping optional workouts

CRAWFORD | Report: Gronkowski's Derby status in question after training setback

CRAWFORD | Report: Gronkowski's Derby status in question after training setback

But, on Monday, it was announced that Gronkowski the horse will not compete in the Derby due to a "slight infection".

The tight end did slip up during this 10-minute press conference.

Let me preface this by saying I love me some Rob Gronkowski. Probably not. But it's unusual to see them in such an odd spot.

"It will be a new experience", Gronkowski said. Gronkowski, along with Tom Brady, didn't report to Gillette Stadium.

"(I'm) not dirt biking or anything.

Like Gronkowski, Brady, 41, skipped out on the Patriots' first set of voluntary workouts, traveling thousands of miles from Foxborough, Mass., to Qatar for charity work.

"I really can't think of anything cooler than having a top-class thoroughbred named after me", Rob added.

Mo Salah crowned Premier League Player of the Year
Suarez won the award, and also scored 31 league goals, back in 2013/14, when he nearly single-handedly dragged Liverpool to the title.

But, he is also not committing himself to retirement; "It depends how my racing skills go today", he joked when asked if he was considering stepping away from the game at the age of 28.

Does he plan on playing football in 2018?

"The idea that he's going to play for four or five more seasons ..."

Just ask Randy Moss, Richard Seymour, Jamie Collins, Chandler Jones, or any of the numerous stars Belichick has sent packing because of unrealistic financial desires, declining play, or an inability to keep to The Patriot Way (or all of the above). "I'm working hard. I'm riding these bikes - once you teach me - and drinking Monster Energy so you can get wild and do insane stuff that people don't like when I do it but I'll just do it".

Q: Have you been in contact with Belichick?

Maybe it's nothing. But for now, aside from being his normal goofy self, Gronkowsi's stunt simply seemed more like an ill-advised attempt to be amusing than it did anything else. "Time" docu-series said on the "MMQB podcast with Peter King" last month.
