Rob has not played football in nearly a year, he had 5 surgeries during that period, and based on an eye evaluation he looks to have lost a significant amount of body mass. With those things in mind what are you expecting Gronkowski to contribute the rest of the way? My personal opinion is that he will be a factor in the passing game with the same effectiveness as in years past, however he will not be as big a factor in the blocking game, it will likely take him a full offseason to regain the muscle mass lost between the arm and back surgeries. I anticipate initially that Gronkowski will see the bulk of his reps in the flex tight end role allowing him to avoid the physical abuse when playing the in line tight end. Just my thoughts; I am looking forward to hearing some others.
