Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been an absolute beast in his second year. His 1,327 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns (17 receiving) were both all-time single season NFL records for tight ends. He definitely owes Tom Brady a lot of credit for those numbers, but at the same time, he’s an enormous target for Brady. At 6’6″ 265 pounds and baseball gloves for hands, he’ll catch anything Brady throws that lands on this side of the equator.
With that said, Gronk isn’t known as a great blocker only because he isn’t asked to block a ton. But with his size, it’s a given that he can push guys around. Ravens defensive end Terrell Suggs learned that out first hand in the AFC Championship. Gronkowski is #87 and lined up on the right side of the screen on the hash mark. Suggs is the poor sap in white who found out what it means to be Gronk’d.
