Kansas State football player Glenn Gronkowski appears to have broken the news that his brother Dan, last with the Broncos, is set to join his brother Rob as a member of the New England Patriots.
Then Glenn realized he probably shouldn’t be breaking that news.
Here was Glenn’s tweet: “@DGronko [Dan Gronkowski] is officially a New England Patriot! Gronk bros tearing up NE! #unstoppable #superbowl SOO HYPED!!!”
Minutes later, our Boston sports media friends noticed that Glenn deleted his tweet.
Thankfully, Colts player Chris Gronkowski followed up soon therafter:
“Congrats to my bro @DGronko! There will now be two gronks in new England!” he wrote.
So there you have it. Unless Bill Belichick cancels the move out of spite because it leaked early, there will now be two Gronks in New England. That should be great for the traffic on GronkNation.com.
We’ll finally learn the answer to the age old question: Is there such a thing as too much Gronk?
UPDATE: Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe has confirmed Dan Gronkowski will join the Patriots.
