Rob Gronkowski happy to be healthy for this Super Bowl

The last time the Patriots advanced to the Super Bowl, tight end Rob Gronkowski was slowed by an ankle injury that left him at less than 100 percent for the loss to the Giants.

Kam Chancellor on Gronkowski: Just play big-on-big

Last week, Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane dismissed Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski as just an “OK” player, but it doesn’t seem to be the prevailing opinion on the team.

Michael Bennett: Gronk is NFL’s No. 2 tight end, after my brother

Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett says there’s only one tight end in the NFL better than Rob Gronkowski: Martellus Bennett. Martellus, the Bears’ tight end, is Michael’s brother. So it’s probably safe to say that Michael is a little biased on that evaluation. “I think Gronkowski’s the second-best tight end. My brother’s first, obviously,” Michael…

Pete Carroll: Jeremy Lane hasn’t watched film of Gronk yet

Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane said this week that he doesn’t think Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is very good. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says that shows Lane has a lot to learn.

Vince Wilfork: Marshawn Lynch “hands down” the best running back in football

On Thursday, Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane offered an unimpressed review of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski to help set the stage for the crucial Super Bowl matchup between Gronkowski and the Seahawks secondary.

Rob Gronkowski on Jeremy Lane saying he’s not that good: “It may” tick me off

Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane let loose with a bit of bulletin board material on Thursday when he said that he doesn’t think Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski isn’t that good.

Jeremy Lane on Rob Gronkowski: “I actually don’t think he’s that good”

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was a unanimous All-Pro in 2014, and his return to top form helped New England make the Super Bowl for the first time since 2011.

Big game for Gronk keeping the Patriots alive

Things haven’t been going the Patriots’ way today in New England. Except when they pass to Rob Gronkowski.

Joe Flacco makes a good play after Tom Brady makes a bad play

Stop the presses: Rob Gronkowski is growing up

For a guy who was on a television cooking show making sausage jokes this week, it’s odd to hear people talk about the “mature” Rob Gronkowski. But teammates and coaches say the fun-loving Gronk might actually be turning into an adult. “He’s grown up a lot over the last five years,” Brady said, via Tom…

Thursday morning one-liners

The Bills’ offensive line has room for improvement. The Dolphins got four injured LBs back to practice, but it’s unclear if they’ll all be available. Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski. Sausage. Write your own punch line. Former Jets CB Darrelle Revis said “It’s kind of sad” the way coach Rex Ryan is going out. Ravens TE…

Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski help Patriots run lead to 18 points

The first time the Patriots and Dolphins met in 2014, Miami used a big second half to hand the AFC East leaders a loss in the season opener. Things are playing out differently this time.

Gronk party. Gronk play football. Gronk get introspective. Well, sort of.

Via Tom Curran of CSNNE.com, the 34-year-old Gates talked…

The Packers and Patriots will square off at Lambeau Field on Sunday and the Packers Defense is preparing for as tough a test as they’ve faced this season.

Rob Gronkowski fined $8,268 for bouncer move

Rob Gronkowski is going to have to work a lot of weekends as a bouncer to make up for this one. The league office tells PFT that Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was fined $8,268 for unnecessary roughness during last week’s game against the Colts. The fine stemmed from his “blocking” Colts safety Sergio Brown out…

Lions know no one man can stop Gronk

As the Lions prepare to face Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski on Sunday, they know expecting any one player — linebacker, safety or cornerback — to stop him is unrealistic. “It’s a team effort,” Lions free safety Glover Quin said, via Josh Katzenstein of the Detroit News. “Everybody chips in. Obviously, when we get him…
