The New England Patriots have decided one Gronkowski is enough.

The team released fullback Glenn Gronkowski from their practice squad on Wednesday.

Glenn, younger brother of Patriots tight end Rob, was signed by New England on Oct. 1. He signed with the Buffalo Bills after going undrafted earlier this year. He played in one game before being released.

Practice squads routinely change. With New England’s previous opponent – the Cleveland Browns – having a fullback on their roster in Malcolm Johnson, Gronkowski could have given the Patriots the looks they needed to prepare for the team in practice.

So until the Patriots need to prepare for another fullback, Rob Gronkowski will have to fill the team’s Gronk needs all by himself.

    If I was Rob, I’d request a trade immediately.

    From what I’ve read & the little bit seen of him – he’s raw talent, but he should have no problem catching on elsewhere, as he appears to block ok & has a good set of hands – which is real nice to have coming out the back-field .

    Typical belicheat. No loyalty and kicks a family member to the curb. I guess Glenn could not understand the signals over his earphone of the other teams playcall correctly.

    @bubby, unfortunately tylawspick is everywhere and we would all prefer he was a Vikings fan. There’s also no shortage of trolls masquerading as Pats fans. By virtue of the fact that too many of your fellow Jets fans have headed for the hills already you are bound to see a disproportionate share of comments from fans of other AFCE teams, Pats fans by pure volume are bound to be chief among them. Of course if you were honest you would admit you have trolled the Pats pretty heavily for a long time, even when your team was doing well last year. Personally I think the Jets are mostly victims of their schedule so far and their season will even out. I think highly of Bowles and hope Johnson is patient, good competition makes the season more worthwhile.
