Gronk says he’ll be “ready to roll” for offseason program

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski had his boss’s permission to wrestle, and said he’s planning on being a full participant when the bell rings on the offseason program.

Before his Wrestlemania appearance last night, Gronkowski told ESPN he was recovered from back surgery and ready to get back to work.

I’m feeling great. I’m good to go,” Gronkowski said. “It’s been about four months now [since surgery]. Just been back with the team a lot during the week, doing my rehab with the trainers there. I’m feeling good. I’ll be ready to roll when [the] offseason program starts. Super excited to get back on the field.”

Of course, last night’s (scripted) action amounted to getting into a three-point stance and running into a wrestler, and he apparently came through it well.

But after having three back surgeries since 2009 and missing nine games last year, it’s still a surprise the Patriots were fine with it.

They open their offseason program in two weeks, and OTAs begin May 22.

    .
    With both Gronk and newly acquired, Dwayne Allen, able to flex out of a 2 TE formation and join Edelman, Hogan and Cooks in a 5 wide spread alignment, the Patriots offense is a nightmare to defense. If you add Dion Lewis coming out of the backfield, it’s mismatch city.

    A potentially healthy GRONK, hogan, Edelman, Cooks, Mitchell, Allen, Lewis, White, Burkhead and Tom throwing…

    Good Jesus enjoy picking for fantasy. Literally, as a patriots fan it SUCKS. Tommy is the only sure fire pick. Last year I head Marty, he went off against Cleveland, than nursed his hammie/ankle injuries….then James White becomes a friggin monster.

    Hurt by daylight saving time just like every other year. Pats would be wise to sell high.

    Another triggered Pats “fan” and I put that in quotes because you won’t care about them after the winning stops aka Brady leaves.

    Hopefully Brady will do a better job protecting Gronk this time around. I would hate to see such a great talent retire early due to injuries.

    If he’s not ready for a little play acting, he isn’t ready to seal off the inside pursuit.
