Patriots vs Lions: Rob Gronkowski "Not Going Anywhere Without Brady"

Patriots vs Lions report card Grading New England's defense

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. "Brady's my quarterback. That's all".

"Yeah, it happened", Gronkowski said of Adam Schefter's report of a near trade with the Lions. "I wasn't going anywhere without Brady".

Rob Gronkowski with the Lions? Gronkowski even declined to return the Lions' calls, according to sources. Thanks to a goal-line interception from cornerback Malcolm Butler, they defeated the Seattle Seahawks, 28-24, for Tom Brady and Bill Belichick's fourth title together.




Patriots fans probably wouldn't have liked to see it come at their team's expense, but Sunday night's celebration was a cool moment nonetheless. After the Super Bowl loss to Philadelphia, he admitted that he was contemplating retirement. Perhaps he doesn't save the team, but he certainly extends their offense to another level in two weeks' time.

New England's defense looks like it could use Patricia back in his previous role after it allowed Jacksonville's Blake Bortles to throw for 376 yards and four touchdowns in last week's romp. He has nine catches for 138 yards and a touchdown through two games to start 2018.

And Sunday's comments from the 6-foot-6 tight end officially confirmed the latter point.
