Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Expresses no doubt with regard to Week 1 status
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski, who was placed on IR this past December after undergoing a procedure on his back, relayed that he has "no doubt" that he will be ready for the start of the upcoming regular season, CSN New England reports.

While Gronkowski's optimism on the injury front is encouraging, the tight end's status will still be worth monitoring closely in the coming months due to his lengthy history of back woes (including three surgeries) as well as other assorted ailments. When healthy, Gronkowski -- who turns 28 in May -- is fantasy's top tight end, but following a 2016 campaign in which he only played eight games, logging 25 catches for 540 yards and three TDs in the process, his durability issues will no doubt be a concern for prospective fantasy owners. Meanwhile, fellow tight end Martellus Bennett -- who filled in capably for Gronkowski down the stretch -- is headed toward free agency and is a candidate to sign elsewhere this offseason.

Patriots' Michael Floyd: Pleads guilty to extreme DUI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Floyd pleaded guilty to extreme DUI and began serving a 24-day sentence at Maricopa County Jail on Thursday, FOX 10 Phoenix reports.

Floyd was charged with seven counts, including extreme DUI and failure to obey a policy officer after he was found passed out behind the wheel of his car at a Scottsdale, Arizona intersection in December. The receiver was released by the Cardinals immediately after that incident, but later signed with the Patriots for the remainder of the season. Following his sentencing, Floyd will serve 24 days behind bars before spending 96 days on house arrest. He'll also be required to pay a $5,000 fine, perform community service and attend an alcohol abuse class. While discipline from the NFL also potentially awaits, so too does Floyd's unrestricted free agency this offseason.

Patriots' Dont'a Hightower: Won't require surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hightower won't need offseason surgery on his knee or shoulder, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

Hightower dealt with a myriad of injuries throughout the 2016 season but still played in 13 regular-season games and four playoff games. It's an encouraging sign that he won't need surgery and he should be a full participant in offseason practices.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gronkowski signed a reserve/future contract with the Patriots on Tuesday.

Gronkowski returns to New England after having four different stints with the Patriots' practice squad. He spent time with the Bills during last year's preseason but was released by the team after Week 1 of the regular season. He'll now work to remain on the Patriots' 53-man roster for the foreseeable future.
