Rob Gronkowski is seeking a new contract from the New England Patriots, but that pursuit isn’t expected to keep him out of training camp.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, a source anticipates Gronkowski will report to the Patriots on time.
In a year in which there is the potential for some notable training camp holdouts, Patriots’ TE Rob Gronkowski will not be one. Gronkowski is expected to report to Patriots’ training camp July 25 on time, per source.

Although the reworked contract never came, the tight end recently said he’s “refreshed and super excited” for the 2018 campaign.
Gronkowski is more valuable to New England than the $10.9 million he’s being paid, but the franchise surely appreciates that an unresolved contract desire won’t prevent him from reporting on July 25.
