No, just our thought of what we wanted to add to the room and add to the competition, Quinn said. So, nothing that another team did really forced us to make that call.
Rudock and Cassel are both operating on one-year deals. Rudock is playing on a non-guaranteed exclusive-rights tender that would pay him $630,000 this season. Cassel’s contract carries $350,000 in guaranteed money, which is not enough to weigh into a roster decision.
The tight end stood at the same podium in the Patriots media workroom where head coach Bill Belichick holds news conferences during the season. Gronkowski, dressed from head to toe in Monster Supercross gear, essentially made a mockery of his absence from the Patriots offseason workout program.
Patriots reporters were alerted to Gronkowski’s media appearance Friday morning. If the team knew about it before the media, it certainly wasn’t long before. And every media member who walked into the Gillette Stadium media workroom Saturday at noon knew exactly what was about to go down. It was described as a fun and informative pre-race press conference that will Johnny Manziel Authentic Jersey play up Rob’s whereabouts. There were no hard feelings when Gronkowski didn’t explicitly say whether or not he was going to play in 2018.

I’m under contract for the next two years, Rodgers told reporters via Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Obviously, we’d like to lock something in, I think, at some point. The team has made that public knowledge that they’d love to do that. As I said many times I’d love to finish my career here. So there’s more than mutual interest on both sides.
Last month, Packers president Mark Murphy talked to reporters about Rodgers’ contract and he said he hopes to have a new deal done before the start of the season.
Yes, I think so, yes, Murphy said. Obviously, there’s a lot going on with free agency, and now the league meetings; so I don’t think there have been a lot of discussions recently. But I’m confident we’ll work something out. I think you’ve seen in recent years and increase in the amount of guaranteed money in contracts. I think this is the first probably that I’m aware of that is guaranteed to that percentage.
