ProFootballTalk: Pats have difficult decisions to make with Gronk

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski will miss the rest of the 2013 season after tearing his ACL and MCL, which leads Mike Florio to believe that he might not be on the Patriots roster come 2015.

    Well; This is sort of a Jake Ballard situation now. I feel very sorry for Gronk. And the Patriots will miss his competitive spirit. But he had a look that said “It’s Over” on that cart. I think it will be very difficult for him to recover from that injury. Plus he seems to be a slow healer. I wish him well. But the Patriots have no choice but to move on. Until he proves he can come all of the way back.

    If Pats let him go, he won’t stay unemployed long.

    I’m sure the Pats would wish him well and be fine with that. He can be on someone else’s IR.

    Pretty hard for me to feel sorry for any star player who gets injured considering how much people laughed when Aaron Rodgers went down.

    This is nonsense. He’ll be back. He’s 24 not 34, the patriots know this. They also know there’s nothing they can do for a hit and injury like that.

    With the knee injury he may lose some of his speed. With his size, instead of being a deep threat that he is now, I can see him becoming a possession TE and still the Red Zone threat he is now.

    Difficult? No.
    There are at most a dozen players that are true game changers in the league. Gronk is one of them. He is hall of fame talent, you don’t let that walk away at 24 years old. No brainer…you keep him and deal with the injury issues. You adjust lineups to keep another skill player around.
    And you draft 2 more TE’s.
