The urban legends never cease
First anything that comes out of espn on internal team matters I ignore. Espn = NYC or some one trying to make news
Gronk had 5 Surgeries in about 7 months including infections, he got a reccomendation from the top Doc, If u wanted to play longer than a few games and be sure for the playoffs, what would you do?
TB has spoken. He is the unquestioned leader. he said Gronk wants to play but hasn't been cleared. JE this morn when asked said the same and also said he only worries about what his job is.
This is now a non issue
Any player would have to look at what he would do. Players stay out of other players contracts, same here, they cannot make another players medical decisions
The Pats are 5-1 -Winning means no controversies
AND the other urban legend
TB renegotiated his contract to keep WW and the Pats screwed him -heard this from CC this morning on M and M. really? TB has said it? Bb has said it?
Didnt TB get all of his guaranteed money and to play thru 40? isn't that what he wanted?Who else gets a contract like that? if TB goes down the sal cap will be ruined
Furthermore every team has to figure out if anyone player is worth 10% or more of the cap with 53 players and then the possible injuries. for these top Qbs they make as much or more in endorsements. The Qbs themselves have to figure out what's best. and getting the small incremental money may not be the answer. It also does not make a difference to the team, they have to spend X anyways. the Rubik's cube is not always easy. Everyone has to manage their egos
