Detroit Lions make easybeats of New England Patriots

  • 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

It appears the offseason trade rumors surrounding Rob Gronkowski were legitimate, as the New England Patriots almost sent their star tight end to the Detroit Lions before the NFL draft, league sources told Adam Schefter of ESPN. However, once he was informed that New England was serious about trading him, Gronkowski threatened to retire.

That was a scenario the tight end wasn't a fan of. He and the Patriots eventually worked out a plan for Gronkowski to stay in New England.

It sounds as if Gronkowski killed off the trade attempt with threats to retire and an unwillingness to work with those inside the Lions organization. New England would take Georgia products Sony Michel and Isaiah Wynn.

7 takeaways from 49ers loss to Chiefs
Strong safety Jaquiski Tartt did not suit up for Sunday's game because of a shoulder injury, and Antone Exum started in his place. It will be interesting to monitor whether or not Goodwin is limited at all, but I'd expect him to be full go.


It's not a surprise that the report was true, it's surprising Gronkowski confirmed it.

Wide receiver Josh Gordon is a member of the Patriots. 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. They lost Jordan Matthews to a hamstring injury and Eric Decker to retirement in the preseason, and have had a parade of receivers come through every week, including Corey Coleman.
