Three more touchdowns and Gronk will have tied Antonio Gates' record of 13 touchdowns in a single season. This record should fall to Gronk in only his second season. For perspective, let's assume that Gronk breaks the record and gets 14 this season (a low estimate in my mind). That will give him 24 touchdown receptions in his two year career. It took Tony Gonzales ten years in the league to beat Sharpe's career record of 62, and in only two Gronk may already be beyond 1/3rd of the way there. His blocking is well known. I just thought it should be mentioned more often that we are looking at a 22 year old kid who very well may become the measuring stick.
