Rob Gronkowski primed for more

FOXBORO — Rob Gronkowski dashed across the Gillette Stadium practice field yesterday through a swarm of defenders whose lone collective objective was to ensure the hulking tight end couldn’t wrap his mitts around a delivery from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.And like so many pawns before them, they failed. Gronkowski disregarded a linebacker and two defensive backs to snare a strategically high pass as he broke free toward the sideline for a play that would have drawn a much more lively reaction if the field was surrounded by more fans than trees.
