It may take a little while longer before we get clarity regarding Rob Gronkowski's relationship with the New England Patriots.

As Bill Belichick noted during Friday's press conference, some players have "other commitments" that will interfere with their participation at the beginning of the offseason program.

Gronkowski won't be the only Patriots star not on the field Monday.

Gronkowski reportedly grew exhausted of the "high-strung" culture within the Patriots organization.

Gronk is not expected to attend the start of the Patriots' offseason activities, according to ESPN and the Herald.

Belichick didn't seem too anxious about the absence of Gronkowski or Brady, noting that players miss the offseason program due to prior commitments every season.
