News Blitz 4/11: Kraft on Gronkowski

Yesterday, it was Tom Brady, today, Rob Gronkowski. This Wednesday, the new sports site The Athletic offers Part II of its one-on-one interview with Robert Kraft, who is asked about the tight end's uncertain football future.

"It's not even an issue for me," Kraft insists, who expects Gronk to be in uniform this season. "I was impressed that he was coming [to Gillette this offseason] and doing whatever he had to do to make himself feel right and get his body right."

Meanwhile, as we look toward the upcoming NFL Draft, linebacker is a position of interest to several media outlets today. The Providence Journal, NBCSportsBoston.com , and WEEI.com all offer analyses of the potential for the Patriots to select a linebacker high in this draft.

The Boston Globe examines New England's "value" approach to free agency this offseason in a detailed featured, while the Boston Sports Journal website has a related opinion piece that suggests two more veteran moves the Patriots could make this year to solidify its roster.

We'll end today with a wonderful human-interest story about Patriots DE Derek Rivers, whose compassion inspired a Lyft driver on a recent ride.

Oh, and keep your eyes peeled for some NFL schedule news in the next week or so.
