We can all stop watching the video of Rob Gronkowski dancing with other celebrities, wondering if he will come back to the Patriots for the 2018 season.

Gronkowski made the announcement in a post on Instagram Tuesday. For the past couple of months, the Pats prolific tight end continued to reiterate that he "was not sure" if he would play in 2018.

Speaking on The Ringer's GM Street podcast, Mike Lombardi, a former Patriots executive and close friend of Bill Belichick, said he believes Gronkowski's actions have been all about money.

"It was very positive, and Rob is committed", Rosenhaus told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

When the team gathered at Gillette Stadium last week for the start of the offseason workout program, Gronk didn't report. With the 23 overall pick, the Patriots selected tight end Dallas Goedert from South Dakota State.

Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh on Thursday called for a thorough investigation in to the Kathua rape and murder case. Singh said that Modi's failure to speak up sooner had allowed people to think that they could get away with such crimes.

With Gronk and Brady back on board, the Patriots will look to avenge their loss in Super Bowl LII next season. That would lead you to believe he still has a few years left.

Considering the uncertainty with his long-term future, the Patriots could be in position to add another tight end.

During the Belichick era, the Patriots have won the AFC East 15 times in 18 seasons, including nine consecutive AFC East division titles, a National Football League record.

The Super Bowl finalists have traded Brandin Cooks and lost Danny Amendola to free agency, but will return Gronk and Julian Edelman in the upcoming season.
