Rob Gronkowski didn’t play in last night game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
And while it didn’t cost the Patriots dearly, it may very well cost him dearly.
As was noted by the “Boston Herald,” it could cost the New England Patriots tight end $2-million, as well.
That’s because Gronk has an incentive-heavy contract that rewards him for being on the field and his being inactive last night set him on pace to reach his $8.75-million incentive tier and, barring an All-Pro selection, this could cost him $2-million.
And that downward turn in income is not the kind of spike Gronk likes.
