Free Agency has taken over the NFL, meaning what's going on with New England Patriots Tight End Rob Gronkowski has been pretty quiet. However, when Bill Belichick stepped up to the plate to answer some questions in Phoenix, he was asked about Gronkowski, and it was a pretty standard affair at first. (Source)
Question No. 1: “Do you feel Rob is on a good medical track to be ready for training camp?”
“Well, that’s a long way away,” Belichick said. “A lot of players have a lot of things to do between now and then. Coaches, for that matter, in terms of just getting ready for the season. I’m sure, hopefully, everyone will be working hard at it. We’ll see how it comes out.”
Standard. Not pissed yet.
Question No. 2: “Have you been happy with the way he’s been attentive to how he’s dealt with his rehab?”
Belichick: “With his rehab? I mean, again, I think every player has a process they go through to get ready for the offseason program and training camp. Every

THAT SEEMS STRANGE

According to Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe, while talking to Patriots head coach Bill Belehick today at the NFL owners meetings, he didn’t sound very happy about tight end Rob Gronkowski.

After the 2012 “Summer of Gronk,” perhaps the Patriots were not ready for the 2013 sequel — the “Winter of Gronk.”
Bill Belichick did not seem happy when asked about Rob Gronkowski at the NFL’s winter meetings on Tuesday, according to Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe. Belichick was asked about the wrestling move Gronkowski performed on his friend while his arm...
Always Gronkin’ Juan…
Patriots Tight End Rob Gronkowski reportedly had a third surgery on his broken forearm a month ago, this time for an infection. It’s not expected to affect his recovery time, or his party time. Gronk has always stayed Gronking no matter what the situation. You know how the saying goes, once a Gronk, always a Gronk. Even back in the day he was Gronking...
Years from now, when your grandchildren’s grandchildren dig up this odd “2013 NFL Head Coach Class Photo,” they’ll wonder where the “Gate Guys” were hiding — as in Bill Belichick of Spygate and Sean Payton of Bountygate.
OK, so Patriots fans’ great-great-great grandchildren will likely know of Belichick for much more than the “S word,” but you get the point....
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is upset with Wes Welker's agents David Dunn and Brian Murphy of Athletes First for guiding him to the Denver Broncos. "Everyone in our organization
Tom Brady pretty much confirmed earlier this offseason that he'll never be the highest-paid player in NFL history, signing a team-friendly extension in order to ensure that Peyton Manning keeps pulling away in that category. But maybe Brady was only doing so in order to be completely sure that he'll be able to keep teaming up with the greatest coach in NFL history for...
The debate about who the best coach of all time and who the best quarterback of all time can be carried for hours. The list of all time great coaches worthy of being the best ever may not be that long, but the debate about who the best quarterback of all time won’t be settled in one conversation that’s for sure.
One man in particular thinks he has the best of both worlds. Patriots...
Some things just don't happen in sports. The Chicago Cubs don't win the World Series. Bill Belichick doesn't smile. The United States doesn't excel in international soccer. Dennis Rodman doesn't solve the world's diplomacy problems. Nick Saban doesn't lose national championship games.
And 16-seeds don't beat 1-seeds in the NCAA tournament.
Bill Belichick and Tom Brady are the winning-est coach and quarterback tandem in NFL history, so calling them the best ever wouldn’t be much too much of a stretch. And that’s just what Robert Kraft did.
Kraft, who along with Belichick is out at the NFL Annual Meeting in Phoenix, Ariz., this week, joined NBC Sports Pro Football Talk crew on Tuesday and let his feelings be known...
Adrian Wilson is new to the Patriots’ organization, but he’s already catching onto some of the team’s unwritten rules. Namely, phone calls.
Soon after free agency began, Belichick gave Wilson a call to talk about the possibility of coming to New England and the All-Pro safety was wise enough to answer.
“Whenever Coach [Bill] Belichick calls, you answer,” Wilson joked during...
Here’s a picture courtesy of the folks over at Deadspin, of 30 of the 32 coaches in the National Football League for the 2013 season looking really awkward and lacking in diversity. Only coaches missing are Sean Payton and unsurprisingly Bill Belichick.
