Gronk: 3 Major Structural Injuries in 12 Months

Shredded ankle, broken forearm, broken forearm.
Is his career going to be riddled with these types of thigns? Add in his neck/back injury from college and you see some scary trends. People that big often have issues because...well, it just ain't normal to be that monstrous.
My thinking works like this: Take a 12 inch 2x4 and try to break it. Now take a 24 inch 2x4 and repeat. See what I'm getting at?
At any rate, it's been my feeling since the ankle injury that this kid will have a prolific, and depressingly short career, 5-6 years, before his body simply cannot take it anymore. Please let me be as wrong as my game predictions.
