Did the Patriots already extend Gronk long term?


Signed him to a 8-year, $55.23 million contract last off-season after his record setting 17 TDs, 1,327 yards 2011 season.


Not really, the deal was two stages a two year extension with a four year team option after those two years

He's turning into the Bob Sanders of Tight Ends. Highly talented, but is starting to miss considerable time due to injuries.

His forearm is simply going to fall off in a year or two. Sorry Pats fans


That would be really freaky.
Agreed.

Good thing about bones is that they heal to almost 100%. Pats fans should be lucky this isnt a ligement injury.


Although true if this becomes a chronic reaccurance with broken bones in his forearm it might as well be.

That would be a huge blow to that offense, he is so important to both parts of it

Rob Gronkouchski needs another operation, won't this be his third on the same arm?


The operation is to remove the metal plate that was put in to brace the break during healing. No one keeps the metal plate in, they are always removed.

This is the gist of the article. -- While informing the media multiple times over the last few weeks that everything was fine, if it really wasn't and the infection was still there when they remove the plate soon they will have to replace that plate with another one and he might not be ready fro the start of the season.

What do you expect from a Murdock rag.


This is completely and totally, 100% untrue. Metal plates normally wont be removed, they only are when complications arise. And if I'm not mistaken, they'll have to implant another plate if the original has to be removed. The bone didn't heal naturally and without the plate it's in a weakned state, again, if I'm not mistaken.

Laughing Probably his mindset. Really though. I hope he gets his act together and doesn't do anymore stupid partying BS after this surgery otherwise the team won't pick up his option and he'll quickly turn into a has-been.

Is there any evidence that this supposed complication had anything to do with his "partying BS"?

...he's only missed 5 games in his 3 years. All of them this year. Hardly anything like Sanders at this point.

To be fair, he missed half of the AFCCG last year and while he played, was extremely limited in the Super Bowl.

And in addition to the 5 games in the regular season this year, he also missed the two playoff games (at least 0 targets against HOU), so essentially 7 total.
