He signed his deal in 2012. Perhaps he was talking to the team about another extension for additional financial security, potentially given the injuries he faced. Maybe this was meeting in the middle. There are several years left on his current deal, but if he continues to perform at a high level, then he will get additional $$. So although the team doesn't "get" anything, they keep him happy with a compromise of sorts in that they aren't committing additional guarantees to a injury-risk.

That's my thought based on what's been said here.

The offense with or without Gronk is gonna be stupid this year. 600 Points is on the table

This is probably a way for the Patriots to open the door for negotiations going forward. Gronk next year will make $9mil and then $10mil the following year.
Pats' front office will sleep better knowing that if Gronk gets injured again, it won't be such a cap crutch.

Gronk's cap hit in 2018 and 2019 is $11m and $12m, with easy outs in each year. Pats could hypothetically save $7m and $10m by cutting him in those years. Which I don't think is a realistic scenario, btw. Even if Gronk goes on IR week 1, it would behoove the Pats to simply restructure his contract rather than cut him outright. There are 31 other teams in the NFL who would pay Gronk even after a season-ending injury.

Seems like a fair salary for Gronk. He's the best tight end in the league, good to see him get paid.

Gronk's actually only had three HOF caliber seasons, because of the injury problems. His health moving forward will be huge for the Patriots, as Brady ages and declines.

I hope Gronk has one really good full season left in him. Be epic if him and Tom could get a another ring together .

I think it keeps his off field fun in check. Vegas might not have any back flips and the drink won't be mixed with anything that might cause him playing time. Also creates goodwill but Pats DO EVERYTHING FOR A REASON and seem to excel well ahead of other teams. They use to collect TE's now it's WR's...
