Rob Gronkowski signed a six-year extension with the New England Patriots, international sports sites reported on Friday, June 8, 2012.
According to a report on the NFL‘s website, Gronkowski agreed to stay with the Patriots for another 6 years for a $54 million contract, making him the highest-paid tight end in the history of NFL.
ESPN reports that the deal includes $16.5 million guaranteed. There is also a $10 million option – if exercised by the Patriots in 2015 – would extend the deal through 2019.
“Congrats to Gronk & his family on his contract extension with the Patriots,” Drew Rosenhaus, Gronkowski‘s agent tweeted. “My thanks to Mr. Kraft & Coach Belichick for making this possible.”
Reports said that Gronkowski has two more years left in his contract. However, New England added this on his rookie deal so that he could be with the team until 2019 season.
