Rob Gronkowski finishes with less than 750 yards receiving and 8 TD’s
As sad as this is to say, while we might see a big, menacing tight end in an #87 jersey for the New England Patriots out on the field, the guy in it isn’t the same Rob Gronkowski we remembered. The myriad of injuries that Gronkowski endured have sapped him of his athleticism. If you want further proof that he’s no longer the same guy, then consider the fact that the Patriots reportedly almost traded him this offseason.
With three of his first five games going for less than 52 yards receiving and zero touchdowns, it wouldn’t be surprising if he finished with less than 750 yards receiving and eight touchdowns this year, the latter of which would be his lowest total in a season he’s played more than 11 games.
