Can New England handle two Gronks in the house?
We’re about to find out as Glenn Gronkowski was signed to the Patriots practice squad on Saturday, just in time to join big bro Rob against the Bills.
The 23-year-old rookie fullback out of Kansas State had been signed to the Buffalo but was released on Sept. 12, and what is Rex Ryan’s loss is Bill Belichick’s gain!
At 6-foot-3 and 234-pounds, Glenn — a.k.a. Goose — ran a 4.71-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine with a 7.10-second 3-cone, 4.45-second short shuttle, 10-feet broad jump and 33-inch vertical leap. He bench pressed 17 reps of 225 pounds.
While with the Wildcats, Baby Gronk named First Team All-Big 12 in 2014, and First Team Academic All-Big 12 from 2013-15.
With the Pats getting doubly-Gronked, New England had better be ready for twice as party-rocking, zubaz-clad mayhem this Sunday as the family is finally reunited in Foxboro Sunday.
Of course, this isn’t the first time that there were two Gronkowskis on the Patriots roster at the same time, as big brother Dan was also signed as a tight end in 2011.
The Pats also signed tight end Greg Scruggs to their 53-man roster on Saturday, NESN reported. They released defensive tackle John Hughes to make room for Scruggs. They also released wide receiver Da’Ron Brown from their practice squad to make room for Glenn.
