Patriots picking up Gronk's option through 2019

Rob Gronkowski isn't going anywhere for at least another four years.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the New England Patriots will pick up the rest of the start tight end's $10 million option bonus before the March 9 start of free agency.

Phil Perry of CSNNE has more:
The $10 million option that will keep Gronkowski in New England for the next four seasons was included as part of the extension that was agreed upon between Gronkowski and the team back in 2012. 
The Patriots paid Gronkowski $4 million of the $10 million option bonus before the start of last season, which all but guaranteed that they would pick up the remainder of his option before the deadline.
