Rob Gronkowski will miss the first day of Patriots offseason program on Monday as he continues to mull retirement, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Tom Brady will be absent Monday as well, but for different reasons. The Patriots quarterback will be in Qatar as part of a program for his charity, Best Buddies.
Gronkowski, on the other hand, has been contemplating his future throughout the offseason and his rift with coach Bill Belichick has been far from a secret. That makes this a story to keep an eye on as the Patriots' offseason program gets underway.
