Rob Gronkowski feels super ready

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski took part in his only offseason work with the team at their mandatory minicamp in June and he said at that time that working out on his own was the best thing for me to get ready for the 2018 season.

It appears the approach worked. Gronkowski told former Patriot Willie McGinest this week that he is super excited for training camp and the 2018 season after a rejuvenating offseason.

The mere perception that the Lakers were anxious about that opt-in deadline was obviously good for the Spurs. LeBron’s decision to decline probably chips away a little of their leverage in trade talks with the Lakers. They don’t want to trade Leonard to the Lakers, but in the end, insiders are betting Gregg Popovich, a franchise-first pragmatist, will bite the bullet and dance with whomever offers the most. (What the Spurs want for Leonard is a point of some contention. They should pivot into full rebuild mode, but they have indicated to at least some teams that they would prefer to remain competitive, sources say. It might depend on what exactly is offered.)

The AAF clearly doesn’t require this. Daryl Johnston will remain at FOX while serving as the San Antonio G.M., and AAF co-founder Bill Polian has not relinquished his on-air role at ESPN, even though fellow AAF co-founder Charlie Ebersol is devoting his Indianapolis Colts Youth Jersey full efforts to the new league, joking in a recent #PFTPM appearance that he’s devoting 36 hours per day to Joe Blanton Jersey the AAF.

A replacement for Savage has yet to be named. When he took the job nine years ago, Savage replaced Alabama legend Kenny Stabler.

Peters: The defense market would scare me quite a bit as a GM. Losing John Carlson from the free agent pool was good news for everyone else on that UFA list. Mike Green seems like a guy that’s ripe for overpayment. As much as I think the 32-year-old can still play, I’d be concerned that the weak market raises his dollar value to a point where it just doesn’t help. He’s still a solid option at the right amount, but I’d have a hard time committing multiple years and anything close to the $6 million average annual value he made on his last contract.
