Lions Were Close To Trade With Patriots For Rob Gronkowski

Josh Gordon figures to capture plenty of eyes- and defensive backs- if he takes the field for the Patriots tonight against the Lions in Detroit

Tom Brady dropped to throw, felt a little delayed pressure off the edge and just whipped the ball 50 yards downfield to no one in particular. "Brady's my quarterback, that's all". Schefter reports that Gronkowski threatened to retire upon learning of the talks and did not return any of the Lions' calls. The two were atop the Patriots receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns list past year, combining for 134 catches, 2,166 yards, and 15 touchdowns. "We had a positive drive and you would hate to come away from it with no points".

New England tight end Rob Gronkowski confirmed an ESPN report in which sources said he threatened to retire instead of being traded to Detroit in the offseason.

It got to the point, according to the report, that Gronkowski was so unhappy with almost becoming a Lion that he wouldn't return any phone calls from the Detroit organization.

She has so far refused, saying she would testify only if the FBI first investigated her allegation. Gail Zika, 74, who is also a Nashville Democrat, said Ford appears to have a "legitimate claim".

"Yeah, it happened", Gronkowski said.

Josh Gordon's New England Patriots debut is going to have to wait at least a week. RB Rex Burkhead left the game in the second half with a neck injury.

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. The Patriots drove 57 yards in 11 plays but had to settle for Stephen Gostkowski's 36-yard field goal when they failed to convert a third-and-1 situation.
