  1. “Would look good paired with Gronk”

    No he wouldn’t. His one semi decent year he had a lot of catches but his ypc was just a little over 7. The rest of his career he’s never even broken 40 catches in 1 season, is not a good blocker and is at best a low quality #2 or a #3 TE. Pats can do much better than this.

  2. He is a very good Red zone TE which was not a strength of NE, if he can be gotten for <4M I would take him.
