Analysis: The 26-year-old Gronkowski alluded to the move on Monday when he tweeted that he was taking a pay cut for the next four years. The deal made in 2012 was a six-year extension worth $54 million, including a $10 million option that would activate the deal for 2016-19. The Patriots paid $4 million of that option last year, making this week's move a formality.
