There has been so much controversy about the Patriots in the off season so far. Why didn't Belichick play Butler in the Super Bowl? Is there beef between Brady and Belichick? Will Rob Gronkowski return for another season? And if he does will it be with the New England Patriots?

Yesterday two of those questions were answered via Gronk's Instagram account.

  • "gronkI met with coach today and informed him I will be back for the 2018 season with the Pats. I have been working out, staying in shape and feel great. Looking forward to another championship run.

This is great news for Pats fans and horrible news for the rest of the NFL as the almost unstoppable #87 will return for another championship season!
