Patriots rework deal with Rob Gronkowski, add millions in incentives

The veteran tight end has reportedly agreed to take a pay cut for the 2018 season, according to ESPN's Field Yates. Besides the $4.3 million in incentives, Gronk also has his $8 million base salary and a $750,000 roster bonus that's already been paid out.

The NFL Network's James Palmer previously reported in May that the Patriots were working on restructuring Gronkowski's deal.

The targets are all a touch higher than Gronkowski's numbers last season, in which he logged 69 receptions, 79.3 percent playing time, eight touchdown receptions, and 1,084 receiving yards.

According to OvertheCap.com, it would vault him over Jimmy Graham (10 million) and Travis Kelce (9.36 million) and Jordan Reed (9.35 million) in what he could make this year.

While Ramsey had praise for Brown and Hopkins, he tells Kimes that "great" isn't an accurate portrayal of the Pats' tight end. This time, Ramsey made it known how he feels about one of the Dolphins newest wide receivers. After a different offseason workout regimine, he believes this year will be different. "That's not really my focus", Gronk said. "I got a long season ahead, and just trying to focus on what I need to really do and just let everything else play out". He won't play Thursday night against the New York Giants.
