The Patriots will kick off their offseason program without Rob Gronkowski.

According to ESPN, which cited an unidentified source, the veteran tight end doesn't intend to participate in the team's voluntary offseason conditioning program Monday.

The report noted that Gronkowski is still considering whether to play in 2018 but has had "good communication" with the Patriots.

While his absence doesn't necessarily mean he's ready to call it quits, Gronkowski has been rumored to be contemplating retirement. On the other hand, he's also at risk of being traded as coach Bill Belichick's aggravation with him seemingly grows.

However, "lingering frustrations" are ongoing and Belichick has questioned whether Gronkowski is "all in" with the team after he reportedly considered retirement to pursue a career in acting.
