It's been quite the offseason for Rob Gronkowski and it still feels like it will end with the tight end getting a new contract.

According to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, a new contract for Gronkowski is “likely,” but “nothing is imminent.” The report added there's still plenty of work to do.

Florio speculates the work left to do is to determine whether the tight end will get another incentive-driven raise (like last season) or if it will be guaranteed money. He adds the most likely scenario is he gets a new contract and then after the season decides what to do with his football future.

Gronkowski attended the three-day mandatory minicamp last week, but didn't participate in any of the voluntary portions of the offseason workout program.

The 29-year-old is currently signed through 2019 and has base salaries of $8 million this year and $9 million next year.
