Patriots sign Glenn Gronkowski, again

The Patriots are double Gronking. Again.

The team announced Tuesday that fullback Glenn Gronkowski, the younger brother of star tight end Rob Gronkowski, is back with the team after signing a futures contract.

Glenn Gronkowski finished the 2016 season on the Patriots’ practice squad. He had four different stints on the practice squad in his first NFL season, and his signing means he starts his second season with his brother’s team.

He went undrafted last season after playing fullback, running back and tight end at Kansas State and originally signed with the Bills. He made the initial roster and played in one game before being released last September, and he first signed with the Patriots last October.

    He came out of college early to the draft last year, for some reason…

    All is good when you join the world champions.

    I believe Develin is a free agent, so this move is for depth in case something goes wrong with trying to sign Develin.

    You need to slow your roll. It’s only February. Wait and see if he’s on the roster in September.

    He’s been a regular practice squadie. He has the right attitude and the futures contract pays him a retainer so the club has protected rights on him because they think he’s showed progress enough to possibly make the team this year. If not, he can spend a 3rd year on practice squads. How is this bad considering the Bills cut him?

    Ernie is too busy trying to doctor up a video showing Goodell stealing Brady’s jersey.

    Hmmm. And how many kids does Belichick have on the pay role?

  12. abninf says: Feb 14, 2017 7:00 PM

    He’s a failure.

    If the Pats signed Glenn, that means he is GOAT! Am i lying?

    Streetyson,

    I’m totally with you, but please don’t try to explain logic to the pet. It’s an exercise in futility.

    The next Ventrone. Only true pats fans will know.

  17. nflrulebook says: Feb 14, 2017 10:49 PM

    9-4 in Conference championships
    6-3 in Superbowls

    Bill knows something about player personnel.

    Enjoy that you get to live in this time and bear witness to his greatness.

    “Hmmm. And how many kids does Belichick have on the pay role?”

    Hmmm, Who cares how many? If they all coach like their Dad, the more the merrier for NE fans. Sure doesn’t seem to be affecting their winning ways. Maybe your crappy team should try hiring a few of them away?

    Are Pats homers really this dumb? This guy gets cut from the practice squad all the time and already you guys are creaming in your pants. Just because the Patriots signed him they think it’s the best ever?
