Bilichick is not covertly sabotaging Gronk out of spite ?♂️. Bilichick just saw the writing on the wall and tried to trade him at his highest value. But since Gronk refused a trade, it wouldn’t make sense to not continue to use him. There’s no conspiracy to hold Gronk back, Gronk’s low production is because his lessened performance due to so many injuries. I had Gronk last year and refused to touch him in any drafts this year. If you watched closely enough, you could see a drop off was going to happen this year. And who closer than Bilichick to Gronk? Once you heard he was being shopped, it should have made you look closer.
