Rob Gronkowksi has joined many other Patriots teammates who wished Danny Amendola well on social media after he reportedly agreed to sign with the Dolphins on Tuesday.

Within the post Gronkowski had an interesting line where he said, "stay lit, Be FREE, Be HAPPY" with the emphasis on free and happy. Without knowing for sure, it could be referring to the culture Bill Belichick has created in New England with it being so serious and not as fun as some other places. 

This could give some insight into what Gronkowski is feeling and not being fully committed to playing in 2018.

Here's the full post: It was a honor playing with ya the past 5 years @dannyamendola Thanks for all the hugs and memories! Stay lit, Be FREE, Be HAPPY. Your hard work, the way you play at your size, the pain you fought through, the hits you take and get right back up talking shit back. I appreciated it all. Congrats. Enjoy Miami kid.

Tom Brady also chimed in, replying: "Well said gronk!!!!"
