Rob Gronkowski's future in the NFL has still yet to be decided, but we now have more insight on the situation. Before making his comments after the Super Bowl LII loss, Gronkowski also considered retirement before the 2017 season even started.

Injuries have taken a toll on Gronkowski's career, but it looks like that's just part of the problem as NBC Sports Boston's Tom Curran explained. The pettiness of Bill Belichick and the Patriots also played a role.

It now goes even further than that.

Beat writer Mark Daniels expanded on Curran's original report, detailing that the team denied him from writing a story about Gronkowski adopting the TB12 diet and working with trainer Alex Guerrero.
