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.

Belichick isn’t happy with Gronk’s rehab since he ended up having to undergo surgery again after suffering an infection in his broken forearm.

I’m sure Belichick also isn’t thrilled about his star tight end doing wrestling moves at a Vegas night club.

Update: Below is what Belichick said regarding Gronk, per the Boston Globe.

Question No. 1: “Do you feel Rob is on a good medical track to be ready for training camp?”

Belichick: “Well, that’s a long way away. 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.”

Question No. 2: “Have you been happy with the way he’s been attentive to how he’s dealt with his rehab?”

Long pause.

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 player, or most every player, has to deal with some aspect of it, including the normal things like conditioning, overall training relative to their physical abilities and their position.”


“The program hasn’t started yet. When the program starts on April 15, we’ll have a lot better evaluation of where everybody is.”


“There’s some limited information now, but I wouldn’t put too much on that at this point. I’d say in most cases, it’s pretty incomplete.”

Several minutes later, Belichick was asked if he had caught Gronk’s wrestling moves, the grainy video of him dancing shirtless on stage at a Las Vegas nightclub during Super Bowl week, still sporting a black cast and picking up a companion and body-slamming him to the stage.

Long pause.

Reporter: “Guess not?”


Belichick: “Let’s stick to football questions.”
