Report: Rob Gronkowski to ‘take his time’ returning to Patriots


New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is “right where he should be” in his recovery from a torn ACL and MCL.  But that doesn’t mean he will rush his return.

According to Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman, Gronkowski plans to “take his time and then take more time.”

Tom Brady’s top target has battled numerous injuries, with back-to-back offseasons consumed by rehabs from back surgery, multiple procedures on his left forearm and now reconstructive knee surgery.

I’m told he might even take more time, and be more patient, than ever before.” Freeman writes. “I’m not exactly sure when we’ll see Gronkowski. I do know he’ll be back when he’s good and ready, and I’m not sure how anyone can fault that.”

The All-Pro tight end caught 39 passes for 592 yards and four touchdowns last season.

  • Hey You Guys!

    Yup, Gronk is up for a new contract soon, so he will take his time to get as healthy as possible and try to draw the big numbers in just in time for salary negotiations. Don’t blame him. Of course the issue with the Pats will be what the heck to do at TE? Perhaps draft one? Hmm…could be smoke and mirrors. Bill likes to play that way….
