Rob Gronkowski Has the Most Gronk Dating Experience Ever with Tinder

Gronk is just too much fun! New England Patriots All Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski has no shortage of potential suitors. He's rich, he's famous, he's a lovable goof ball, and he loves charity work. But even Gronk had to join in the fun with the dating app "Tinder", according to a recent ESPN feature on athletes and online dating. Patriots star Rob Gronkowski tried Tinder four years ago just for laughs, he says, "and I was matching like crazy!" I tell the "chickmagnet4life" -- seriously, that was his AIM screen name -- I'm not faring as well. It hits him like a bolt of lightning. "You're...

Hybrid Edge Rushers that Could Interest the Patriots

Hybrid Edge Rushers means players who can play inside and outside in virtually any defensive scheme. My definition of a hybrid edge player is a player who can play both the edge and inside well. Typically that means they are best suited to be a 3-4 5-technique defensive ends, but would also play either the 5 or 7-technique in a 4-man front. I have no idea if the Patriots are shifting back to a 3-4 defense for the ~25% of downs where they play "base" defense. That's really a moot point since the Patriots typically play 2/3 of their snaps in their nickel, although it was 83% last year due to...

2016 NFL Draft Prospect Profile: Will Kansas State FB Glenn Gronkowski Join his Brother Rob in New England?

Should Rob Gronkowski's little brother be on the Patriots' draft radar? The last time the New England Patriots spent a draft pick on a Gronkowski, he turned into arguably the most dominant tight end the NFL has ever seen. Rob Gronkowski, now entering his seventh season in the league, is the prototypical modern-day tight end. He also is the only member of his family to have a successful pro football career. This could change in 2016, though, as another Gronkowski is on his way to the NFL: Rob's youngest brother Glenn. The 23-year old played his three-year college career with the BIG12's...

Patriots TE Clay Harbor Receives Big Signing Bonus and Might Be a Roster Lock

It seems that Bill Belichick was playing chess with the tight end position while I was busy learning how to color inside the lines. The Patriots picked up a contract option for Rob Gronkowski (expected) and then acquired Martellus Bennett from the Bears (possibly the biggest move of the Patriots offseason). The signing of former Jaguars tight end Clay Harbor flew under the radar, but perhaps it deserves more attention. Harbor received a whopping $400,000 signing bonus, per the Globe's Ben Volin, which pretty much guarantees him a roster spot this season. Volin also notes that the contract...
