Detroit Lions make easybeats of New England Patriots

Report TE Rob Gronkowski almost traded inside NFC North

Khalil Mack was nearly the second big name traded inside the NFC North this offseason.

The Patriots play the winless Lions in Week 3.

Amusing enough, the Patriots play against the Lions on Sunday Night Football in a game that marks the first time Matt Patricia will be coaching against his former team.

The New England Patriots tight end reportedly killed what would have been a blockbuster offseason trade that would have sent him to the Detroit Lions, ESPN reported.

Man arrested after jumping fence, boarding empty plane at Florida airport
Police say Sankat, who carries a Florida driver's license, has dual citizenship with Canada and Trinidad and Tobago. The airport was on lockdown for about five hours, returning to business as usual by 7 a.m., Booker said.

When Gronkowski discovered he could be traded to Detroit that week, he threatened to retire rather than go to the Lions.

The Packers already got a taste of Mack, who was traded to the Chicago Bears the week before the season opener.

Adding Gronkowski to the Lions would have only served to make winning the NFC North a more daunting task in 2018. The two were atop the Patriots receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns list a year ago, combining for 134 catches, 2,166 yards, and 15 touchdowns.

Gronkowski, 29, pondered walking away altogether following Super Bowl LII in February, but he met with Patriots brass to discuss his future, which included only catching balls from quarterback Tom Brady.
