Gronkowski's game is predicated on him taking punishment and destroying the competition. But with his passion for the game waning and his body breaking down, the Patriots have to move him now before he retires and the team gets nothing in return. 

Gronkowski is one of the most valuable assets in the NFL. Teams will give New England the moon and the stars for a chance to have Gronk running in the middle of the field for them. The Patriots have a chance to rebuild their team quickly. They should take it by trading Gronk.

Gronkowski will be 29 years old this NFL season and is coming off a 1,084-yard season. The Patriots would be morons to trade the best tight end in the game. Here is Ben Volin at the Boston Globe with more:

Now to the other aspect — whether Belichick has tired of Gronk’s attitude and contract gripes. Belichick shipped Richard Seymour, Logan Mankins, Wes Welker, and Vince Wilfork out of town, so why can’t he do it to Gronk?

Belichick absolutely could, but it would be foolish. The aforementioned players were all good to very good, but Gronkowski is a first-ballot Gold Jacket. He’s also still on the positive side of 30 (29 this upcoming season), and still one of the five most dangerous weapons in the NFL. Realistically, no trade compensation is going to be worth it, even multiple first-round picks.
