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…

Brady says DBs “panic” when they have to face Gronkowski

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady says tight end Rob Gronkowski is so physically imposing that opposing defensive backs are afraid to cover him. “Imagine trying to cover that,” Brady said. “He just gets great body position, and I think that’s a big part of it because he’s such a big guy, it’s hard to go through…

Rob Gronkowski: I like scoring touchdowns

If there was one play that told you everything you needed to know about Sunday’s 51-23 Patriots blowout of the Bears, it was New England tight end Rob Gronkowski’s third touchdown of the day. Gronkowski caught a pass, flung Bears safety Ryan Mundy aside as if he were a gnat and then outran the rest…

Patriots take early lead vs. Chicago

The Patriots’ offense is looking sharp early vs. Chicago. Tom Brady’s six-yard TD pass to tight end Rob Gronkowski gave the Patriots a 7-0 lead a little more than five minutes into Sunday’s game at Gillette Stadium. Gronkowski’s TD catch — punctuated by a spike, of course — capped a five-play, 55-yard drive. Tailback Jonas…

Rob Gronkowski: We made Tom Brady look like Tom Brady again

The Patriots rebounded from a week of criticism and scrutiny by overwhelming the Bengals on Sunday night in a win that saw quarterback Tom Brady play his best game of the season. Better blocking by the offensive line made a big difference for the Pats as did tight end Rob Gronkowski’s first 100-yard receiving game…

Gronk ready for more playing time

The Patriots have taken things slowly with tight end Rob Gronkowski in the first three weeks of the season. Gronkowski is returning from the torn ACL he suffered last year and the Patriots have played him on 48.5 percent of the snaps so far this year. They ramped things up a bit against the Raiders…

Friday morning one-liners

Robert Woods wants to be the No. 1 receiver for the Bills. Dolphins DT Randy Starks’s consecutive games streak could be at risk. Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is still shaking off some of the rust.

Gronk touchdown, three Dolphins turnovers help Pats to 20-10 lead

Look for Gronk, on a limited basis

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski told reporters this week that he’ll play in Week One, but on a limited basis.  Coach Bill Belichick was more circumspect (there’s a f–king surprise).  Officially, it’s a coin-flip as to whether Gronk suits up. Unofficially, Gronkowski’s assessment is correct.  Per a league source, Gronk is expected to play, but…

ProFootballTalk: Will Tom Brady be limited against the Dolphins?

Patriots’ QB Tom Brady has been listed as questionable for Week 1 with a calf injury and like always, Bill Belichick isn’t sharing any further information. Mike Florio expects Brady and Rob Gronkowski to suit up and go against Miam

Brady is questionable with a calf injury

Like teammate Rob Gronkowski, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has said he’ll be ready to play on Sunday.  And as with Gronk, the official word on Brady’s availability from the team is “maybe.” The Patriots have listed both Gronkowski (knee) and Brady (calf) as questionable for Sunday’s regular-season opener against the Dolphins. “Physically I had the…

Report: Rob Gronkowski accompanies Patriots to Miami

Call him Air Gronk. Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee) is part of the club’s traveling party for Sunday game at Miami, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reported Friday.

Thursday morning one-liners

Bills LB Brandon Spikes is ready to fill the leadership gap. The Dolphins are focusing on how to stop Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski this week. Patriots players are continually impressed with Bill Belichick’s ability to motivate (through means other than trading them when they get old and expensive). Did the Jets know about rookie WR…

Bill Belichick: No decision on Rob Gronkowski playing this week

It’s safe to say that Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski’s announcement that he’s playing against the Dolphins this week didn’t come with the approval of coach Bill Belichick. For one thing, Belichick feels the same way about sharing information about his football team as certain celebrities feel about having their intimate photos pulled out of…

Gronkowski’s announcement a little confusing

Yes, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has declared that he has gotten the green light to play on Sunday from his doctors, after a torn ACL derailed his 2013 season.  The bigger question could be whether he got the green light from his head coach to disclose that he got the green light from his…

Rob Gronkowski says he’s a go for Week One

The Patriots started last season without tight end Rob Gronkowski on the field. It doesn’t look like they’ll find themselves in the same predicament this time around.
