The New England Patriots reached out to the Lions this spring about a possible trade involving Rob Gronkowski, The MMQB’s Albert Breer said in a Monday radio interview, per NESN.com.

I don’t think they were shopping Gronk to the entire league, but there were some teams they trust that I know they talked to. Detroit, Tennessee, Houston, San Francisco — you guys can make the connections there, Breer said on The Herd With Colin Cowherd.

In Detroit, Gronkowski would have paired with starting receivers Marvin Jones, Golden Tate and Kenny Golladay to give the Lions arguably the best passing offense in the league.

Matthew Stafford threw for 4,446 yards and 29 touchdowns last season for the Lions, Jones and Tate were the only receivers in the NFL to top 1,000 yards receiving for the same team, and Golladay had a promising 28-catch rookie season and is in line for an even bigger role this fall.

The Lions released Ebron in a cost-cutting move in March, just before the start of the league year, and after striking out on Trey Burton, signed Luke Willson and Levine Toilolo in free agency.

Willson, a Windsor native who’s never had more than 22 catches in a season, will enter training camp this summer as the team’s No. 1 tight end.

We’re all heading into camp excited for our offense and what we have potential to be, and that’s the best offense we’ve had here in a long time, center Justin Britt said last week, via the team’s official website.

The offensive line struggles led to the team’s problem moving the ball consistently in 2017. The http://www.officialauthenticvikingsstore.com/YOUTH+MACKENSIE+ALEXANDER+JERSEY lack of a ground game left everything on Russell Wilson ‘s shoulders behind a line that struggles to keep the mobile quarterback protected long.

Britt said the addition of Solari will help grow a mostly young offensive line. The center highlighted the coaching changes bring a new perspective in a good way, a real good Authentic Mackensie Alexander Jersey way.

I think this is the youngest we’ve been since I’ve been here, so you see a lot of speed, a lot of energy, a lot of enthusiasm, a lot of want-to and not a lot of have-to, Britt added. The attitude is right, I’m excited heading into camp after having the http://www.authentictigershop.com/authentic-44-daniel-norris-jersey.html OTA and minicamp that we’ve had. If we stay on course like the way we are, I don’t see why we can’t be one of the top offenses in the league. We have the tools, we have the coaching and we have the attitude, so we just have to have a good six weeks leading up to camp, and hit it full stride.
