Rob Gronkowski Confirms That He Threatened Retirement Over Trade To Lions

24 September 2018

"Yeah, it happened. Brady's my quarterback, that's all".

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.

And after the loss, Gronkowski confirmed the report - and all of the other ones, even - as being the truth. However, Gronkowski learned about the proposed trade and threatened to retire if was dealt to Detroit despite the Lions' significant New England connections with GM Bob Quinn and head coach Matt Patricia. "I'm not going anywhere without Brady". 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.

The Patriots finally called off the trade, likely leaving the Lions very disappointed.

He made that clear to Bill Belichick, and that ended all trade talks back in April. It was at that point, the both sides reconciled.

Detroit refused to let the five-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback get any closer.

In the end, it looks like a bullet dodged for the Pats. The reigning MVP managed to complete only 14-of-26 passes for 133 yards, a touchdown and an interception, while his new wideout, Josh Gordon, who came over this week from the Browns, was inactive with a hamstring issue.

On Sunday, Gronk led the Patriots with four catches for 51 yards as the offense struggled overall.

Tight end Jacob Hollister, who has shown promise as a receiving target, also was also inactive.
