Brady, Gronk Still not Happy About Butler Benching

Quip Coady

Gronkowski incurred a minor infection that will force him to miss a potential start in the Derby, Tom Ludt, who directs Phoenix's worldwide operations, confirmed Monday.

"We've had a minor setback and we will know where we are in the next 24 hours", trainer Jeremy Noseda said, according to Racing Post.

When asked if he would be appearing at the Patriots optional workouts, he again declined to answer in a serious manner, saying: "No, I've got dirt biking skills to work on.".

This has really nothing to do with Gronkowski the horse, but seemed like a good memory to share.

Super Bowl LII was long over, but #New England Patriots quarterback #Tom Brady and tight end #Rob Gronkowski are both still asking for an explanation about the benching of cornerback Malcolm Butler in their 41-33 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Though he could not run down top Derby contender Magnum Moon in the April 14 Arkansas Derby, Quip has three wins in five career starts and would be a respectable challenger to the Derby champion. "I'm all in: Welcome to the Gronk Family, Gronkowski the Horse!" He does have just two years remaining on a contract that has averaged $9 million per season, and has arguably never been paid his true worth as one of the NFL's premier weapons.

Named after Patriots tight end and new part owner Rob Gronkowski, the horse was set to enter the race at 4-1-0.

"This is a game where money invested should be thought of as disposable income", racehorse expert and consultant Tony Cobitz told CNBC in 2010. Josh Rosen is also said to be on the team's radar as is Baker Mayfield. "The chances of losing are 90 percent". The Steve Asmussen-trained colt finished fourth at the Arkansas Derby on April 14.

Gronkowski said fans could expect a "freak-a-leek" when he returned, but backtracked soon after.
