Rob Gronkowski checks in at Gillette

ARIZONA -- A few picked-up pieces from the NFL owners meeting: 1. While the purpose of these meetings is for teams to discuss NFL matters, some agents come here to talk player-based business with clubs. Agent Drew Rosenhaus, for example, is a constant presence in the lobby. He currently represents three Patriots players -- tight end Rob Gronkowski, defensive end Jabaal Sheard and cornerback Chimdi Chekwa. As it turns out, while Rosenhaus is here in Arizona, Gronkowski is among a handful of players at Gillette Stadium on Monday.

Rob Gronkowski honored tonight as Patriots' Ed Block Courage Award recipient

The 37th annual Ed Block Courage Award will be presented to one player from each NFL team Monday night in Baltimore, and tight end Rob Gronkowski is this year's New England Patriots recipient. Gronkowski came back from a torn ACL to have a remarkable 2014 season, as he had set a goal to play in every game after missing time with the ACL and prior to that a broken forearm. His mission was accomplished -- he was held out of the season finale as a coach's decision even though he was healthy -- as he finished with 82 receptions, 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns.

2015 Patriots GIF of the Year: Gronk Does Gronk Things vs Tom Brady Takes Matters In His Own Hands

Which GIFs can make the Final Four?! #Patriots GIF of the Year: Elite Eight pic.twitter.com/dXvpfPSJQ3 — Rich Hill (@PP_Rich_Hill) March 8, 2015 2. Gronk Does Gronk Things Rob Gronkowski took down Mark Wahlberg in the opening round in a 90% to 10% blowout. He followed that up with matching 77% to 23% victories over Julian Edelman's 69 yard touchdown and Vince Wilfork's game winning interception over the Raiders. This touchdown is probably the greatest catch-and-run of the entire year. I could watch it forever. 16. Tom Brady Takes Matters In His Own Hands How about the 16 seed that...

2015 Patriots GIF of the Year: Malcolm Butler Saves the Season vs Brandon Browner Lays the Wood

Which GIFs can make the Final Four?! #Patriots GIF of the Year: Elite Eight pic.twitter.com/dXvpfPSJQ3 — Rich Hill (@PP_Rich_Hill) March 8, 2015 1. Malcolm Butler Saves the Season Malcolm Butler made it to the Elite Eight through its closest match of the tournament. After beating Chandler Jones and Rob Gronkowski in the first two rounds with identical 96% to 4% scores, Butler beat Brandon LaFell's game winning touchdown over the Ravens with a relatively close match of, uh, 91% to 9%. So not really that close. But this GIF is basically Kentucky playing college basketball so anything...

2015 Patriots GIF of the Year: Gronkowski Monster vs IncrEdelman Punt Return

Which teams move on to the Elite Eight? 2. Gronkowski Monster Wait, did I just notice Dan Connolly running fifty yards on this play? Look when Tom Brady throws the ball and Connolly is lined up at the 50 yard line. Rob Gronkowski catches the ball at the 33 yard line. Gronk crosses the goal line four yards ahead of Connolly. Maybe Connolly's kick return wasn't an aberration. Maybe he's just an athletic freak that was miscast at offensive guard. Maybe he should play tight end instead of Nate Solder, or maybe he should line up at 3-4 defensive end, or maybe he should just catch screen passes...

2015 Patriots GIF of the Year: Gronk Does Gronk Things vs Vince Wilfork's Jumping Squirrel

Which teams move on to the Elite Eight? 2. Gronk Does Gronk Things So Rob Gronkowski definitely slowed down towards the end of the season. He wasn't as explosive in the Super Bowl, or really for most of the playoffs. I think his knee was wearing down and he needed a break. He should be even better next year and that has to be a truly scary prospect for opponents. Apex Gronkowski couldn't be stopped from the Broncos game through the Packers game. He made stupid catches every single game. Imagine that over a whole season. It's entirely possible. 3. Vince Wilfork's Jumping Squirrel If this...

Rob Gronkowski: Super Bowl changes lives

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was a guest on ESPN Radio's "SVP and Russillo" program on Wednesday, with part of the discussion tied to the ESPN Madden Ultimate Team vote. But things started with what Gronkowski has been doing since the Patriots' victory in Super Bowl XLIX. "When you win the Super Bowl, it changes lives," Gronkowski said on the program. "It's been very cool, but I was also [part of] a Super Bowl loss, when we lost three years ago.

2015 Patriots GIF of the Year: Gronk Does Gronk Things vs Julian Edelman 69!

Second round of the Kevin Faulk division! 2. Gronk Does Gronk Things Can you believe that this was still a two score game with just under half of the fourth quarter to go? The Colts were still totally in this game against the Patriots. It didn't seem like it was "that" close. Not really that close, but, you know, close enough. But then Rob Gronkowski decided that it was time to throw the Colts out of the club. This was 3rd down, too, which means that this was a reasonably high stakes play that Gronk took all the way to the house. 7. Julian Edelman 69! Is this all we need to know about...

2015 Patriots GIF of the Year: Gronkowski Monster vs Musket Guitars

The Matt Light Division plays in the second round! 2. Gronkowski Monster I think the only way to make the Patriots vs Bears game any better would be for it to happen under a flurry of snow. That's the only possible way because this game was perfect. Any time that a team scores three touchdowns in under 60 seconds is in the midst of a heat check, and the Patriots came out of halftime on fire. New England is up 38-7 right after the half. Rob Gronkowski just discards the Bears defenders and scores again. How can Chicago even suit up knowing there's an entire half of football left to...

2015 Patriots GIF of the Year: Tom Brady's Got Wheels vs Rob Gronkowski Dragging Half the Team

The Troy Brown division takes on the second round! 2. Tom Brady's Got Wheels Tom Brady running will never get old. I mean, it's fairly young in its existence. Brady running might have shown flashes of brilliance in the past, but it was a majestic unicorn. To have the scramble as an expectation? Darrelle Revis was still a Buccaneer when the Brady scramble didn't exist. Dominique Easley still had an ACL or two before the Brady scramble. Come to think of it, Rob Gronkowski and Easley probably each had to give an ACL to Brady to allow him to scramble. It's the only justifiable reason. Do your...

2015 Patriots GIF of the Year: Go Go Gadget Gronk vs Lamar Miller's Mile High Shoe

The Troy Brown division takes on the second round! 1. Go Go Gadget Gronk I can't really remember Rob Gronkowski from 2011, even though he was better than this past season. Maybe remember isn't the right word- I can't fathom 2011 Gronk. Gronk made catches like this look routine over the season. The Chiefs game. The Bears game. The Broncos game. The Colts game. The Packers game. He had plays that left your jaw hanging on a regular basis. Can you imagine how he'll look next season? I can't fathom it. 8. Lamar Miller's Mile High Shoe I just noticed this- I believe it's Logan Ryan who knocks...
