Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski calls trade rumours ‘fake news’

June 10 2018 12:05 AM

Rob Gronkowski thinks reports suggesting he was going to be traded by the New England Patriots were “fake news.”

Multiple reports surfaced on Friday claiming New England were prepared to deal the 29-year-old tight end.

A team spokesperson denied the reports and said there was "zero truth" to the rumours, according to NBC Sports.

Gronkowski duly addressed the speculation himself on Saturday, telling reporters: "It just shows how much fake news is out there.

"Hashtag fake news, that's all I know. It's true. It exists.

"I see it all the time about me. It's wild.”

Gronkowski registered 1,084 receiving yards and eight touchdowns in 14 games for the Patriots last season.
