A clip is making the rounds in the aftermath of last night’s #1
ESPYs that Youth Julian Edelman Jerseys , even without context, will do nothing to kill the growing belief that retired Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is destined to emerge from retirement this year.Talking with Saints quarterback Drew Brees on the red carpet, Gronk at one point says, “Yeah, I’m coming back.” He laughs (more like squeals) after saying it, and so beyond not being able to tell what he’s referring to, it’s also impossible to tell whether he’s simply being sarcastic.Amid plenty of hints and clues regarding the possibility that Gronkowski could return, the strongest came (in my view) when Gronk said this to Rich Eisen last week: “I mean I can’t really say how I’m going to feel about it when the games start rolling around and everything.”It reminded me of Brett Favre’s April 2008 visit to David Letterman, when the then-retired-for-the-first-time Favre blurted out the clearest indication of the annual unretirements to come: “I think when training camp gets close, I will — something’s bound to happen.”It feels even more inevitable that something’s bound to happen with Gronk. One key question that remains unanswered in all of this is whether Julian Edelman Jerseys Stitched , if/when something does happen, Patriots coach Bill Belichick will welcome Gronkowski back with open arms.Eleven years ago, the Packers didn’t want Favre back. In March, Belichick declined to comment on “hypotheticals” related to Gronkowski. There’s a chance Belichick, as a matter of principle, won’t slay the fatted calf for a prodigal son who simply wanted to avoid the offseason program, training camp, and/or the first half of the regular season.That hurdle won’t become relevant, however, until Gronkowski decides how he’s going to feel when the games start rolling around and everything. But if Gronk wants to play and Belichick isn’t willing to disrupt the existing team vibe and/or to set a potentially bad precedent by accommodating him Youth Rob Gronkowski Jerseys , maybe Gronk will end up catching passes from someone else.Maybe even the guy he was talking to on the red carpet last night. The Patriots gave up a 2nd and 3rd round pick to get the CB from Vanderbilt."WhitePatriots News Opinion and Analysis Contribute!

Here’s a look at why they did it. 1. He was the best player on their boardThe Patriots were reportedly thinking about taking Williams at 32, so it made all the sense in the world for them to come up and get him in the first half of the second round. 2. His ceiling is Richard ShermanIs he going to be Richard Sherman? Probably not. But that’s his ceiling. He, like Sherman, was a wide receiver in college before switching to cornerback. He’s a big bodied corner at 6’4 who can get physical with bigger receivers and tight ends — and with the way the league is trending, you can’t have enough of those guys.Pats Pulpit reacts to the Joejuan Williams pickSubscribe to the Pats Pulpit podcast for more draft reactions!3. The Patriots needed to shed some picksThe Patriots had 11 more picks when the draft started today. They have no place to put all those guys, so they needed to get rid of some of them. Look for them to possibly make another move up Rob Gronkowski Jerseys Stitched , or trade for a veteran or a pick next year. 4. The depth isn’t fantastic in this draftWhen you look at the players that would be available at 101, it doesn’t exactly excite you. Clearly, there will be a few stars that get drafted later, or don’t even get drafted at all, but the overall depth isn’t great, so trading up doesn’t hurt as much this year. 5. Because Bill can’t help himselfBelichick has made a trade in every draft since 2001, and he wasn’t planning on letting another night go by without making a trade. Yet another Patriots streak remains intact.
