New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will not attend the start of the team's offseason program Monday, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. There is no certainty that means that he is leaning toward coming back, but it at least means that the Patriots have been kept abreast of what Gronkowski is going through.

Monday's offseason workouts are voluntary. The Patriots quarterback now is in Qatar with Best Buddies International and is not set to return until Monday night.
