Baby Gronk works out for Patriots

Glenn Gronkowski, the youngest brother of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, worked out for the Patriots on Monday, ESPN reported.

The Patriots are among the league’s busiest teams with workouts and doing their advance homework on potentially available players, so there’s no indication that Baby Gronk is going to actually be joining Big Brother in the Patriots’ locker room.

Glenn Gronkowski went undrafted last spring, then made the Bills’ initial regular season roster as a fullback, tight end and special teams player. He was waived last week.

Rob Gronkowski is still waiting to make his 2016 debut thanks to a hamstring injury.

Former Buccaneers running back Storm Johnson and former Cardinals cornerback Jamell Fleming were among the players who also worked out for the Patriots Monday, according to ESPN.

    Belichick will sign him, coach him a week, trot him out against the Bills for a 2 TD performance, then cut him the next day to make room for Brady’s return.

    gotta be one of the least flattering pictures he could take.

    did wrecks waive a brother of the NE Pats to hide his playbook prior to playing NE?

    Inquiring minds need to know.

    Hmm, well maybe Bill sees some potential he can build on, given his success with Rob. Or maybe they just like working out anyone they can in the neverending struggle to find new talent.

    But ya gotta admit: 2 Gronks would be scary….

    Not going to lie, the thought of Steve Belichick coaching Brady’s sons as they heave TDs to an array of baby Gronks and Edeltots brings a smile to my face. Haters are going to continue bottoming out the salt market for the next 50 years.

    He looks like the oldest.

    He was the victim of Rex Ryan’s dysfunction in Buffalo. He played all of 8 downs Week 1 before Rex decided to bring back last year’s fullback who they’d cut in preseason. An all around waste of everybody’s time but that’s what Rex is best at.

    Wow what an ugly family.

    This is what is called haying the field before putting it into the barn.

    —————————————————————-

    They already have 2 gronks at TE.
    When Martellus Bennett and GRONK get on the field together and Brady is the QB its going to be more than scary for the teams that have to deal with that. Along with Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, and Malcolm Mitchell and AJ Derby.
    And don’t forget the running backs.

    And if Brady gets hurt the Pats will have the best backup QB in the league with Jimmy Garoppolo.

    ++++++++++++++++++

    NE could really use a copy of Rex’s playbook. All those injuries and a real D coming to town on a short week, they could use the laugh.

    This would actually be the second time the team had two Gronks. Dan Gronkowski played briefly with the Pats back in 2011.

    At least he was on the roster. Not sure if he ever saw the field.

    I think he’s there to donate some fresh hammys for big bro.

    yeah, that’s what NE needs, Rex’s playbook, since that’s probably the fastest way to get them out of the playoffs.

    ——————————-

    He played 8 snaps, and whiffed on his blocking assignments or otherwise looked lost. Felton was cut the previous week, and because he is a vested veteran and was not on the roster for week 1, his salary is no longer guaranteed.

    Get your facts straight.
