Rob Gronkowski, Patriots Discussing New Deal

Jul 31, 2016 7:18 PM

Rob Gronkowski and the New England Patriots are discussing a new contract.

Gronkowski's agents were on hand for Sunday's practice. No deal is imminent at this point.

Gronkowski is currently playing under the eight-year, $55.23 million pact he signed in 2012. New England in March notably picked up the pass-catcher's $10 million option, which keeps Gronkowski locked in at a team-friendly amount through 2019.

Gronkowski has openly complained about his deal this offseason.

Jul 31, 2016 4:01 PM

DeAndre Hopkins will report to camp with the Houston Texans despite his disappointment in not having an extension.

"I too am disappointed that the Texans organization has elected not to enter into contract negotiation to secure my future as a Texan," the statement read. "I have expressed my sincere position regarding my contract status and with sound mind have expressed my stands (sic) to the Texans organization.

"My focus also is on the 2016 season and to help my team reach our ultimate goal.

"Having said that I am returning to the Houston Texans to play for a Super Bowl in Houston, Texas. ... We are excited about returning to the team and grind this camp."

Hopkins is entering the fourth year of his rookie contract and is set to make $1.4 million this year.

DeAndre Hopkins Holding Out Of Texans' Camp

Jul 30, 2016 1:10 PM

DeAndre Hopkins is holding out of training camp as he seeks a new deal from the Houston Texans.

Hopkins, who is entering the fourth and final year of his rookie contract, did not report for the start of the Texans' camp, according to sources. He will be subject to fines of $40,000 for each day of camp he misses.

Because the Texans picked up the fifth-year option available on all first-round pick contracts, Hopkins technically has two seasons left on his deal. He also has a $445,000 roster bonus due Wednesday, the fifth day of camp, that he will miss out on if he hasn't returned by then.

Hopkins was a first-round pick in 2013, and the Texans extended their 2011 and 2012 first-round picks [J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus] as they entered their fourth seasons.
