Patriots, Rob Gronkowski discussing new contract

Are the Patriots preparing to furnish the most talented tight end in football with a brand new contract?

NFL Media's Mike Garafolo reported Sunday that Rob Gronkowski's agents, Drew and Jason Rosenhaus, are working with the team on a new deal, according to a source informed of the negotiations. Both agents were on hand for Sunday's Patriots practice, but Garafolo reported that a new contract is not imminent, noting that Drew Rosenhaus on Sunday declined to comment on any talks.

New England in March notably picked up the pass-catcher's $10 million option, which keeps Gronkowski locked in at a team-friendly amount through 2019.
